    My buddy runs 33x12.5 BFG's. Other than winter driving, it doesn't see use off road. Not sure if there would be rubbing if he did. Looks real nice.

    i was running 33x12.5 on stock. the rear tires did hit when i did some mild off roading. no problem with the front. I just put in a 2"body lift looks better and i think the rear tires may have a little more travel.

    ARQ.

    A friend has a Blazer with 33x12.50-15 BFG AT tires on 15"x8" Rallys and they seem to fit fine. He doesn't 'wheel it much, but he says that they did hit a couple of times.

    I have 32x11.50-15 Bridgestone MT tires on 15"x10" Eagle 063s and the when the front tires were pretty new, they would nail the "fang" when turned to about 2/3 lock in either direction. They don't hit now that they're pretty well-worn.

    I'm running 33x12.5's on 15x8 rims and I don't hit or rub at all. No fender trimming either. Of course the rear quarters were banged up pretty bad when I got it, and I haven't bothered to fix it so........?

    33x12.5 seem to hit when ran on 10" wide wheels....... ive seen some 32x12.5s on a stock height blazer and it looked to have plenty of room to flex
    also remember BFGs are ussaly closer to the actual height said on tire.... while "off brands" are ussaly smaller than said...
