New to the site here and wanted to get strait to the point.

I saw on another thread that people were putting 275/35-24s on their Envoys and Trailblazers with no rubbing.

I would like to know if this is possible for my Rainier or do I need to go 275/30s, and even with the turning radius as far as it is will these tires still not rub? :confused:

Any help will be appreciated and Thank You very much ahead of time.

Stephen :thx

Stephen,
The 275/30/24 tire is more than 6% larger than the overall diameter of the stock wheel/tire package. It is possible to calibrate the speedo so that it reads properly with the larger wheel/tire package, but your gearing will be taller as a result of the larger rolling diameter. A 255/30/24 tire is within ~1% of the stock overall rolling diameter and is what I have installed on my Trailblazer. To answer your question, the larger tire will fit without rubbing even lowered 2"/3" Belltech or 2"/4" DJM on a Trailblazer or Envoy so I'd have to assume you'll be fine on a Rainier, but I've never seen that done on the Buick before so I can't say for certain.
