Will a 225 75r 16 work on my 05 GMC 2500HD

Asked by GuruQ951R Nov 11, 2019 at 11:32 AM about the 2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4 Dr SLT 4WD Crew Cab LB HD

Question type: General

My friend has a brand new set of those tire sizes that are
back country tires. She is giving them to me. Literally 80
miles on them. Will they work on my truck? The factory tire
is a 245 75r 16. We are going to swap them today, but just
want to make sure first.

Yes, they'll fit they'll just be 20mm narrower but shouldn't be an issue.


Yes they will fit but the load rating will be reduced so they might not last as long as a stock tire would. You should check the overall diameter of the narrower tires conspired to stock, they need to be the same to avoid speed sensor errors that will throw off the actual speed and distance traveled of the vehicle.
