    I didnt receive much response from a thread in another forum area so I thought I would try here. I have a friend with a 95 Chevy 1500 with 33X12.50X15 M/T tires on 15x10 rims. His truck is not lifted and is at stock height. He bought the truck this way and does not know the backspacing on the rims. What I am wondering is if I were to purchase 33X12.5X15 tires on 15X10 rims what backspacing would I need to get them to fit? Or should I just ask if they will fit the Suburban? They would be going on my 95 Suburban 1500 4X4 that is at stock height, ie not lifted. Please advise. Thanks for all the help. John

    Not sure if your being sarcastic or not but, maybe money is not an issue for you but it is for me. If money was not an issue I would have my 03 2500 HD 4x4 w/46" however money is not growing on the trees in my backyard. If I could get a serious response rather than a negative on it would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks again. If you post was meant jokingly then please disregard my response. John

    I'll answer seriously then.

    This question has been answered literally thousands of times on this board. Do a search and you'll find so much information on this that I'd have carpal tunnel before I could type it all.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to offend, I dont understand what your asking, 33X12.5X15 MTR's on 15X10 Rim is the same as 33X12.5X15 on 15X10 Rim. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Maybe I am a little confusing. The tires are a 33 X 12.5 X 15 Mud Terrain Radial's on a 15 X 10 Rim. I am just wondering if anyone knows what backspacing I need to make sure the rims are so they fit the Burb without terrible rub. Thanks again. John.

    P.S. I did the search but didnt find the exact info I was looking for. I shall start the quest of searching again and maybe I will find it.

    i think they'll fit fine. but maybe you want to run an 8" wide rim to keep the rub to a minimum.
    hope that helps.

    8" rim would help out with the rubbing...

    Thanks for the replies. Just what I was looking for. I may try getting something worked out to be able to fit the 15 X 10's without rubbing. Not a full on suspension lift but maybe some new springs or something. I put a post in the Off Road Design section seeing what is recommended. Thanks again for the help. John
