    Okay here my question. Right now I have 31x10.50's on my truck and I was wondering if 33x12.50's will fit under a stock suspension. Reason being is I need new tires, and I wanna go bigger but I don't have the money for any suspension mods yet. I don't plan on taking it to the trails like that until I can lift it up some. Will I be able to drive around town without rubbing?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    I've got 33x12.5's on my stock 87 with a 3" body lift. No problems, except a minor body rub at the top of the rear tires when flexed hard.

    as of right now i have 33 x 12.50 on my stock blazer. everyone said that they will rub, but i have not yet. i have only done little climbing and mud. i can turn steering wheel lock to lock and still no rub. i know that if i flexed it more they would rub. till i can afford to do what i want, this will have to do.

    Most tire shops will put tires on to see if they'll fit. They kept telling my husband my 35's wouldn't fit....but they were willing to mount them to find out......needless to say....they fit.
