    Uh - I imagine if there is anything over an inch of space between the wheel and fender - Yes they will fit?

    If it has 32s and it's a 90 then 33's should fit no problem, the main issue is the width. Are they 12.50s? Anyway, 1" won't make that big of a difference...

    There is no correct answer. Some trucks yes, some trucks no.

    Stock ralley wheels, no lift, 33x10.5R15's clear on my truck no matter what I do, I think that is most everyones experience with stock wheels, stock suspension, and this tire size.

    33x12.5R15's seem much more likely to rub when turning, flexing, etc., from others experiences.

    Width is the important factor here, along with the varations among each truck.

    I have a set of 33 x 12.50 Pro comp Xterrain on 15 x 10 rock crawlers and I don't rub on the street. I have only rubbed once while off road riding. I don't try to flex my Jimmy much off road because I know they will rub then. I say you can do it for a DD or mild off road trail riding.

    If you ask me, rubbing is the embodiement of "not fitting". /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    It depends on wheel size, backspacing, the condition of your body mounts....etc. Like you said, some trucks fit, some hit. Mild rubbage doesn't necessarily mean that the tires don't fit, either.

    Stock tires/wheels/suspension don't rub. Therefore, any tire that rubs without making changes to the vehicle, doesn't fit. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I've never seen an all stock K5 with such poor springs that stock tires rubbed.

    Hardcore's truck has the stock AL wheels, IIRC, those are 1" narrower than the steel ones, and the tire brand itself could also impact the "rubbing", as well as spring condition/how may leafs, and all the other variables there are.

    If you did, would you say that those don't fit, either?

    It depends.

    I have a 4" lift and they rub.

    But I don't have a swaybar.
