    33's with little or no rubbing if wheeled hard. 35's with no rubbing on the street, but rubbing when wheeling.

    More info is contained in Numerous posts, and can be found in a search.

    You could probably search and find plenty of info, but I sympathize with ya since you can only search for "lift" and not "4" since it has to be a 4 letter word to search. So here's a couple of tire fitment tables. It is true though that each rig is a little different, you might be able to fit more, but the tables are on the safe side.

    Colorado K5 Tire fitment Table in Tech Section

    Tuff Country Tire Fitment Table

    BTW, I ran a 4" rough country on my '87 stepside chevy 1/2ton 4x4 and it fit 33x12.50s on 15x10 rims just fine. Probably would have had to trim a little for 35s. Which is exactly what the tables say anywho. If ya wanna see how it sat, check the pu on my web page.

    I must concur with my esteemed colleagues, I'd say do a search and you should find plenty of information............... :D

    search search search. I know other peeps are saying it... but what you have to understand is that we are saying it in a positive helpful way, not a "I dont wanna answer your question you noob!" sort of way. There is a TON of tech information in the CK5 archives. Delving into it will get you more info about your K5 than posting individual questions ever will... you'll get the info faster. Its amazing how much stuff I have learned over the years by accident when I do a search for "topic A" and end up reading 20 posts on "topic B" that was interesting/educational.

    Anyway, all of that said... 33s with 4" of lift... 35s if you keep the anti sway bar connected and don't really off-road it or otherwise flex the suspension.... 42s if you remove and/or trim your fenders waaaay back and relocate your axles a bit. :)
