    I've got the money to order the tires now, but not enough to get a lift with em. Does anyone know if I can run 33x12.50x15 General Grabbers on the stock K5 without trimming the fenders? Anyone run this sort of set-up for mostly mudding type fun? It's my guess that they might rub when turning and flexing at the same time... maybe the back of the wheel well. I keep getting different opinions, but just want to hear it from someone who has run em like this before. I appreciate any advice or help. Thanks all.

    Blazen,
    Do you run 33x12.50? Or 33x10.50?

    <font color=green>im running 33x12.50's under a stock lift, and i have no problem and i can still flex somewhat and not scrub, but yeah i get a little rubbing when i turn and flex at the same time, but it hasnt hurt anything yet. im going with a 4" lift just for the hieght and im going to 35's later anyway.
    yeah you should have no problem with 33's
    check out my site, it shows my rig with 33's

    You should be fine with that setup. My truck was sittin on 33X12.50X15's w/ no lift and had no problem. Right now I'm on 35X14.50X15 Boggers and no lift, a little fender chopping. I just got back from Muddin the 5hit outta my rig and it scraped a little but everything's still there.

    If I had no lift, I'd try out some 33x10.50s. the maine problem with 33s and no lift is the width, and that is usually 12.50. They usually rub the front fender when its flexed while turning. They should fit.

    I've been wondering the same thing about my rig. Only thing is I already run a 15x10 wheel so mine will be pretty wide. And the 33x10.50 won't work very well with my wheels. However I would be up to trimming the fenders some.
