    They have every other size in 33s like 10.5, 12.5 , etc etc. even down to 9.5 I seen once. Im jus not sure how 33 12.5s would look on my Blazer,but I know what 11.5s look like.lol.

    33's look good on stock blazers. i have 32x1150's on my DD and look great too, but i like the extra inch both ways.

    get 16 inch wheels and run 285/75-16s. They are pretty close to 11x33.

    is there really much difference between a 11.5 and 12.5 wide 33? The way tires are sized, it probably isn't even an inch. Why stress over it?

    33's on stock '87 K5 ! HOW ?

    How are you guys fitting 33's under a stock supension without them rubbing on everything. I have a stock '87 and the best I could do was 31's. I tried to do with 10" wide rims but they even made the 31's rub.

    33's on stock supension ! ! ! ??????

    10.50" won't work for me either. I can get into some soft stuff down here in Fla and need all the width & 'flotation' and foot print that I can get. When I was trying to fit the the 31's on 10" rims we jacked the rear right corner up to put as much weight as we could on the front left tire. When we would turn it as far left as we could the rear outside corner of the tire would contact the support on my running boards. I'm not sure but I may have been able to take the running boards off and maybe squeezed by. When we used the 8" rims it was OK. I don't want to get into any fender trimming and have really been holding off on lifting it. I'm on a hunting lease on the 3rd largest ranch in the US and have to go through quite a few pasture gates so climbing up and down all the time gets old real quick. We've got 7250 acres to wander around on. Some guys run swamp buggies but that's a real chore getting off and on one of those all the time.
