    im not sure about yours but im running
    32s on a stock 89' toyota
    33s on a 98' chevy tahoe
    and 33s on a 86' chevy 1500 longbed

    and so far the only major truble has been with the tahoe i blew the tranny and the rearend at the same time and the worst part was that i was on pavement in the midle of town

    hope that helps

    depends on your lift and how much you cut off... you could probably safely run 39.5's but that is probably pushing it. Not knowing your gear ratio. so on and so forth. if you do a search this topic has been talked about hundreds of times.

    i used to run 38.5" swampers on my 3/4 ton saburban with a 10" lift and 4.10gears. the only problems i had with that was minor fender rubing in the front and i blew a tranny. sorry to say the burban was wrecked.
