    Will 39.5 x 13.5 tires fit a 81 K20 with a 6 inch lift and cut out fender flares? I will only be in mud and road with this truck, no rock crawling or anything. Thanks.

    Might have to move the front axle farward an 1" or 1.5". I am running 39.5x18 boggers on 5" of lift, my front axle is moved 1.5" forward. With massive finder trimming.

    I have an 85 K5 with 39.5x15.5 and before I put my 3 inch body lift on the tires would rub a little bit but only when I turned. You could do it if you trimmed the fenders a little bit.
