If it's the same gear ratio yes they should fit only if its the same lug count must be a six lug ,Tahoe will not have an 8 lug only suburban 2500 will have them must find out youre gear ratio you can do this by counting youre ring and pinion teeth but most 99 Tahoe should have 3.42 gears there is 14 teeth in the pinionn and 41 in the ring forexample divide 14 by 41 and you get 341.463 round it off to 342 i believe six lug suburbans had 3.73 and if youre Tahoe is 4wd you have to go with whatever is in the rear.
