will 33" fit on a 86 k5 with out rubbing or tearing anything up?
if you dont want to go off road and run 8 inch wide wheels. I have 33 ssr swampers on my blazer with no lift right now, and i rub when i take it out on the trail, and when i turn and hit a bump it will rub.. if you wanna cut then thats a different story, mine aren't cut.
I bolted up my 37's on 4" of lift and I couldn't turn the wheel more than a few inches. According to my redneck math, that's the same at 33" on stock. Add a couple inches of lift or trim a little bit off the fenders.
I have run 255/85R16s (approx 33x10") with stock height, stock steelies, no cutting, and no rubbing.
not sure how that worked considering im on 7" lift and 33x12.50s (far from true size) and i STILL rub offroad, even after trimming. Tore up the fender finally some last trip.
I have a 88 w/ 33 x 12.5 Bridgestone Duelers A/T's on stock rims. No rub and I've wheeled it a little.
No! Only 27" street tires will fit
I ran the 255/85R16s on only a 6" wide rim so it still fits completely under the fender. Wide tires & wheels really eat away at the diameter of tire you can run with a given amount of lift.
Here's pic of it with the tires and worn-out stock springs.
Stock wheels/suspension, 33x10.5 SHOULD fit without rubbing under any conditions. (mine and others have)
The diameter isn't the problem, its the 2" additional width of the 12.5" wide tires, typically compounded by non-stock wheels.
