Question Biggest tires on stock Suspension.?

What the biggest tire size on Stock Suspension? I read on some Thread that it's bad for your tranny or something in the long run? Like what would I need to do for it to be safe.. And not Tear up the transmission. Do I need to upgrade my gears? I heard something about that too. My trucks Automatic.

You can probably upgrade to 30's(265) or 31's if you do minor trimming on your valence

32x11.50 will fit. you dont NEED to regear till 35's. You could upgrade for 33's depending on your stock gears. I got 4.10s and will be runnin 33's no problem just a little slower on the get up. If you went 4.85's (i think) with 33's youd be extra safe but 4.10s will do it.
