Just got a set of bfg at's for a 16" rim. They're at about 50% tread life. Wonder if they'll fit on my 1500? They are only slightly larger than my 275x55R20's. Might run em if they fit or sell em if not.

you can not put 16" tires on a 20" rim.

lol, seriously? i dont think he meant putting the 16" bfg's on his 20" rims. he was asking if they are going to rub on full turns.

here use this, the bfgs are 32.8" diameter and your 20" are 31.9" diameter. depending on the offset of the rims you might get away with it.

Forgot to mention they're going on the stock 16" steel wheels.

i have that exact size on my f150, its real close fit when the wheels turn, but all is good. they should work on a chevy also

Yes the 285s will fit. You may have to crank your torsion bars a little or trim a little plastic off the bumper.
