    guys I came across a set of wheels from a 2017 Silverado. 265/65R18. Will these fit into a stock suspension 97 Tahoe? Hopefully without any rubbing?

    All day... that's a roughly a 31.5" x 10.5" tall tire.
    Basically it's an optional factory tire diameter.

    Assuming your 1997 is a 4x4 with non-sagging suspension, you should be fine.

    My Tahoe (effectively with a 1" drop... 2" spindle drop + 1" coil spacer) previously had 265/65/17 without any rubbing.
    Currently running 285/60/18s (taller and wider than what you're considering) and only rubs at full lock.
