    Hi, newbie here. I have a rusty but trusty GMC 1500 4x4 that I use to plow the drive ( never goes out on the road just up and down a 125ft drive) My question is - I have a set of 2 nice tires and wheels that are 16.5 in. - the wheels on the truck are 16's - will I screw something up if I put the 16.5's on the front or back? Appreciate any info. Gary

    Tire size

    It is important that the outside diameter of all four tires are the same,The rim size doesn't matter.If the OD of the tires don't match it will cause a bind in the whole drivetrain.
