Tire Size Guide – Does it Hit or Fit?

With the desire for larger tires comes size clearance questions.  What size tire can I fit under my 4×4 and what modifications do I have to do to my vehicle to get a particular tire size to fit.  The following chart is compiled from many sources including a good degree of the information originating from suspension lift manufacturers (listed below) as well as tire manufacturers and other compiled data from 4×4 enthusiasts.

The data below is derived from research, readers rigs, feedback by readers and from direct experience with vehicles we’ve owned over the years.  Not all possible 4×4 vehicles are listed nor are all possible combinations.  Even tire sizes vary from tire manufacturer to tire manufacturer and tire widths play a part in whether a size will fit or not.  Also clearance is directly affected by what kind of terrain a vehicle will see.  For instance a vehicle that only sees on-road driving will be much less likely to fully articulate the suspension and cause a particular tire to hit, while the same tire will constantly rub on a 4×4 that is flexing on the trails.  So this chart of information is not an absolute reference and should only be used as general information.  We always recommend you talk to others who have the same vehicle and run the tire size you want to run, on the terrain you want to run.  If you see any possible corrections, please let us know and we’ll check it out and update the chart if necessary.  As always, it’s best to rely on suspension lift manufacturers and their recommendations on particular lift kits for tire clearances on specific vehicles as they have generally done the research to build their data charts.  It’s also good to contact the tire manufacturer for exact tire dimensions when sizing up a vehicle for tire fitment as tire sizes are not always what they are advertised as.    Links to additional Tire Size Charts below.

  1. Looking at your Tire Sizes chart: 34″ through 44″

    73-91 K5 Blazer Jimmy 35″ tires says (ft,SL(4)

    What does the (4) sand for? I have a 1988 K5 Blazer and I’m having wheel spacer issues.

    Thank you

    • SL(4) stand for Suspension Lift 4″

      You can refer to the key above each section. In this case:
      SL = Suspension Lift SL(inches)
