A lot of them came stock with 235/85/16 which is 32 inches tall from the factory, I have a few sets of this size tire and 4 dually rims, eventually these will hopefully fit under my Suburban.

Here's a link to all tires available in 16 inch wheel size from one supplier.

You could also swap out the duals for a wider wheel and go much bigger in tire size. I've seen adapters that go from the 8X6.5-inch lug pattern to the 10X11.25 lug pattern for running semi-truck wheels and tires.

There's an idea, using Super Single semi-truck tires and wheels on a dually truck, HMMM. . . my Suburban isn't finished yet. . .

I run 255/85-16s on my dually. These are BFG Mud Terrain T/As. I get them from Tire Rack. I needed to use a spacer between the rear wheels, as I was getting sidewall wear from rubbing under load.
