    Does anbody know what the largest sized tire that can be put on a 2011 hd without having rubbing issues? The stock tires are horrible in the snow. I have 18inch wheels. Would like to put a set of bfg's on it.

    Just asking for some advise on what other size I can use. All I found was the same Michelin that came with the truck. In order to get something else i will probably have to change sizes. I would rather go bigger than smaller. 17,000 miles and they are going to be useless this year in the snow.

    My '11 Chevy 2500 hd came with the factory 20 inch wheels/tires and I have not had any rubbing problems, that I have noticed.

    Factory tire is a 20 inch..Wrangler SR-A ..I believe its a 265/60R20


    Makes for a nice high ride..amazing what the extra few inches do..my wife has to climb in.

    315 I believe is the highest tire you can put on without mods.

    My '11 1 ton dump came with 17's. I did upgrade to the all seasons over the stock tires.
    I havnt plowed yet, but this thing goes places in 2wd where my 07 2500 would need 4x4 and even then it was tuff at times.
