What are the largest tires I can fit on an 02 Escalade with the stock 17's. I don't want to swap wheels or anything... just want to fill out the wheel well a little more with a larger tire.

Thanks.

Hi Chris,

My EXT is lowered 2/3 and I just stuffed BFG Mud Terrains on the stock 17" rims: 285/70. They clear the frame and wheelwells by 1/2" and catch on the inner fender only if you really tip her during cornering.

But no worries - eventually it'll wear a notch in the plastic fender and you won't hear a thing! ;-)
