    My friend and his 4\" and 33\'s??

    My friend is getting a 4in susp lift on his 87 k5.
    Hes gunna run 33's is it me or does anyone else think it will look extremly funny/stupid? I told him to run 35's it will give him about 1" more clearance but he says he doenst wanna pay the extra bucks? although he can afford the 35 prolly.
    And he also wants All terains.. He drives mostly sand , what is a good brand for sand? M/T's? Thanks

    no, it won,t look stupid.........<font color=red>BUT<font color=black>.........it will look much better with the 35" tires. i know because i just went back to my 35"s and took off the little 33"s and it made a huge difference in the looks of my ride.
    if he's worried about rubbing, add a couple inches of lift to the body.
    besides, there isn't that much difference in price between the two tire sizes.

    It's you...
    Lot's of people on this forum run 4 inches with 33's.
    I was one of them..

    33's and a 4" lift looks just fine and usually works just fine too. 35's can be run, but either a few more inches of lift will be necessary or some fender trimming so they don't rub.

    If his gearing is marginal for 33's then 35's would be a bad plan unless you also think he has enough dough to re-gear...[​IMG]

    No I don't think It'll look stupid. That's what I currently run. And my 33's rub my fenders like crazy.

    Now honestly, tell me if this looks funny.

    I run 33's with a 4" lift and it looks fine. They do rub when it's fully flexed so when I step up to the 36's in a couple weeks I'm adding a 2" body lift and removing quite a bit of sheet metal.

    I can't imagine 33s rubbing where I go witha 4" lift, but I can tell you that 35s do a little.
