    I've got an 81 K10 Sub lifted 3" in front and 4" in back. Will 34" tires fit???? I know all the fit tables say 33x12.5 are ideal but if they will fit 34s why not go for it. I am thinking about a set of super swamper LTBs (34x10.5x15) on my stock 15" rim. The actual dia. is like 33.6 inches. Can I do it with out any body cutting?? Any help would be great. :D

    They will fit mostly..... At full steering lock and full stuff they will probably rub but it shouldn't be too bad.

    you have a decent chance if you go with the 10.5's. if they rub you can always add a 1" body lift or zero rate.

    or buy a bigger spring lift.:rolleyes: then bigger tires then a bigger body lift, then cut the fenders, add lockers, go smash it up, add a winch. give in now and just put some rockwells under there.

    give me :hack: , or give me death! Put on whatever tires you want, and hack them fenders. Seriously, you could fit 44s with 4" of lift if you really wanted too!
