    Hi guys,Sorry for another tire question,but I was going to 33" tires on my stock '87 Blazer (No Lift), but the guy at the tire store said that they would rub,so he said I should use 32" tires. I'm going to later this year buy a K5 for trails with 35" to 44" tires with a big lift and fender cutting.For right now I'm going to be driving mostly on the street and a little off roading.So what do you guys think.I have 15x10 wheels,I just read a post that was very close to my quetion, he was talking about 15x10's.

    So should I use
    32"or 33" on my 15x10's with no lift.

    Sorry for the lame question,I have seen alot of posts like this.:doah:

    run 32s if you don't want to rub.
    sell your 15x10s and get some 15x8s.
    if you wheel the 10s, they're gonna get banged up more and lose their beads more if you air down the tires.

    I like 32's or 33's on a stock k5.

    Mine has 31's right now, but I have a set of 32's and a set of 33's I'm going to run. Here's a pic of 33's on stock 15x8's.

    Ok
    My stock 76 K5 has 33X12.5's on it, and it needed some fender trimming.

    I'm running 33x10.50x15's on my '88 with no lift, and no they don't rub. They look a bit like pizza cutters on the factory wheels though.:rolleyes:

    Hey guys thanks,thats a good idea to get a set of 32's on 15x8's that should work out the best for what i'm doing.This clears up all my tire questions for now.I also love the search I use it for most of the questions that I have.I might be asking some questions on bigger tires (35"-44") in the near future.

    Talk to yall later.

    You can fit 33's on 8" wheels too. That's what I have. No rubbing:D

    trust me, you can make 33s rub almost no matter what. I had some on some 15x8s with 7" lift and i still rubbed after trimming a couple times...

    33's can rub, at least 12.50 wide ones i know

    i know because on my stock 77 k10 they rub when i go through the driveway dip to get onto the street, and also when i make certain slow speed turns sometimes, and thats only ever on pavement, even sometimes it will rub in a level parking lot, never know when


    good luck
