    They wouldn't fit on my '83, went to a 4 " pro-comp, and cut a little bit of fenders, it rubbed under full flex.

    they fit my '83........ rubbed just a bit on the front driver's side, back lip by the door. bashed it back with a hammer and was good to go. this was on-pavement, surely getting all flexed up would result in rubbin'....

    33's wouldn't fit my stock '77, but they fit perfectly with the 4inch lift. Sometimes I wish that I had cut the fenders and gone with 35's, oh well. I had some bad luck with Goodyear Wrangler AT's, and bought BFG AT KO's and thought that they were good until winter came, now I don't know what will work good on snow and ice. Gotta do some more research on tires and weather performance. Good luck with your tires.

    I could only fit 32's at stock on my 84. I lifted it 2.5 inches and they fit fine...Only have rubbed a couple of times.

    I Got 33's on my 83 with factory suspension and the only time it rubs is full right turn while mashing the gas in reverse. I've run up over curbs and stuff to see if they's rub and they didn't.

    Re: 33\" Tires

    it depends on your rims if you have a negative offset they wont fit without rubbing but if you have a positive offset like i do they fit fine i can score a 704 on a 23 degree rti ramp and dont rub i have jumped my blazer and still no rubbing i wheel fairly hard and have never rubbed take a look at my pics and videos below

    just this past weekend i slapped 33x12.50x15 TSLs on my stocker. I had to do a two second trim job that is not even visible to the daily driver. i really love the way they look too.

    So I got that going for me.....which is nice!

    My 33s had no problem on a stock 84. They were 9.5 wide and that's the difference. Any wider you need to lift. I did put a 2" add-a-leaf so I could fit chains on the front as well as the rear but if you never need chains you can run 33x9.50 on a stock K5

    Re: 33\" Tires

    What parts do you have to trim? Is it a pretty simple trim job?
