Default Biggest tires with 3" Body Lift

I'm considering putting a 3" Body Lift on my truck to go along with the leveling kit, and i'm just wondering how large of a tire i can put on if i stay with the stock rims. I have a 2003 Sierra 2500 HD. Thanks

A 315 on stock rims would be a good size... I dunno anything better

Do at least 35s, there was a truck on here (1500 rcsb) with 37s but I think the stock rims would be too skinny for that tall of a tire. His truck looked sick though, from the side anyways.

I woud not go any bigger than a 315 I aint a fan of the stuffed tire look. You want some space in there.
315 on a stock rim probelly. People with Hds need to post some pics up

I don't recall seeing alot of HDs with 315s on the stock 6.5" rims...alot of 1/2 tons on the factory 7" and 7.5" wheels, though. Most of the HDs I've seen on here run aftermarket wheels...come to think of it, BigBlueHD is the only one I remember having a 3" BL on a HD, but my memory sux...

most ppl with 2500hds put 315s on the stock wheels with just a body lift. i had a friend with 16x8s and 35s with a body lift and a small crank. i personally think body lifts look horrible on 2500hds. my problem with putting 315s on stock wheels is that they are 6.5" wide.
