    Currently running 15x7 on the old chevy. No modifications to suspension, could I run some larger tires than the P235/75R15's i have on right now?

    Larger as in taller, or wider?
    I know you can go wider, from what others have said on here. Not certain about taller though, without modification to the inner fenders.

    2wd or 4wd? With that size tire I assume it's 2wd. But if 4wd, for sure you can.

    Even on 2wd I see many people saying they run 31's on factory rims.

    If 4wd 31x10.5 fit

    I’ve seen plenty of 2wd on 31’s as well. Probably depends on what condition your springs are in, but 31’s are probably doable.

    My 2wd with saggy front coils is running 31x10.5x15 on factory 8" wide comfortably. It also has 265/75/16 on the rear on i think 7" or 8" rims and factory suspension but i have a big ten so that may make the back end higher due to heavier springs.
