    Well, how wide and how tall of a tire do you want? Don't see too many of the former on here but lots of 35s. @bigfootchiro

    So, the easiest thing to do when looking to see if another tire will fit is using an online tire size calculator. Plug in your current one to see what the height and width of the tire is, then plug in ones you think may or may not work. Some sites give you a list of sizes and tell you how much bigger or smaller they are.

    In your case, if that’s the tire you are running, then the 35x12.5 in a 20” rim will fit. It looks like they will be almost a half inch shorter and a quarter inch narrower. Not enough to notice a difference

    I figure Nathan would know what big tires fit well under GMT400 Tahoes since he's doing it!

    I love these Mickey Thompsons, but there’s a lot of other nice MTs, even ATs that would run nice in 35s!
