you could fit 33's with no problem. with 35's you would probably have to do some minor triming but it would be worth it because personally i think it looks a whole lot better. the more rubber the better

You could get a 6 inch and run 35s no problem, if you had an older truck you could run 37s with minor trimming, but not on those new body styles.

6 inch lift equals 35's with full articulation on your truck. Trim a bit or add a body lift and you can clear 36's.

SWEET that is gonna be a bad ass chevy. i think you should try runnin the 35 before you add the body lift.
since you getting mixed results id do that.
When are you planning on getting the lift?

My wheeling bud runs a 99 Z71 like mine (only standard cab) with the Pro Comp 6 inch lift and 35's with no rubbing. He has Master Craft Courser AT's in 315/75. He ran Swampers but they did rub at full stuff because of the side lugz. If you go 6 inches and don't go nuts on tire selection you can run 35's, or you could add a 3 inch body lift and run any set of 36's you wanted.

Ya, you can fit 35's w/ no rubbing and only trim your air dam. That's only if your wheels are no more than 8" wide and You backspacing is no less than 4"

I have a 6" Superlift , 35" BFG's, on 9.75" wide 589's. I did rub at full lock and compression, but w/ minor inner fender trimming (less than 1/2 inch of metal) MT's clear easily, even when offroad. If I had wet w/ 16x8 wheels and 315's(they are a hair shorter than my 35's)I would guarantee no rubbing, and no trimming on my truck.:D:
