:us: Hi, I have a 2001 X Limited w/ the stock 255/70/16 tires on it. I have no plans on lifiting it. What are the largest tires that will fit on it? Would 265/75/16 fit? Or something larger like a 285/75/16? I am keeping the stock 5 star rims. Thanks..:thumbsup:
 






265/75 would be pushing it with your Limited running boards and fender flares. You could probably do it with a little trimming-

You could run a 265/70 easily it probably wouldn't take any trimming and would be easier on gas mileage.

There is no way 285's would fit without a lift. They require 3-4" of lift to clear.
 






Thank you so much for the info. I will follow what you say.
 






please search before posting. Theres a chart in the stickies of this section about tire/wheel size. Closing this thread.
