    I have 33's with a 3" bodylift. Works fine for me.

    If you dont want to lift it, body or spring, and you dont want to trim your fenders, and you dont want it to rub, 32s, if you are thinking of a two inch spring or body lift, or more, 33s, if you dont mind trimming your fenders, 33s, or idf you dont mind az little rubbing, 33s. Basically, #3s will rub when you turn the wheel all the way, they will hit the back of the fender well, that is 33X12.5s, I am assuming 12.5s, becuase those atre most common. so, you make the decision.

    I had my 33's on for a month before my 4" lift was put in and it only rubbed when I hit a steep driveway or hill while turning. They should fit fine with a little trimming. It looks d@mn cool too. My next project is 37's with my 4" lift and a sawzall.

    <font color=blue>I am currently running 33/12.50/15 tires on a stock 85 with no lift. I get minimal tire rub on the inside wheel well... although it comes very close to hitting the front fender edges when turning. It really depends on the tires. Not all measure exactly to what they say they are. I'd say just try them out then go from there. </font color=blue>

    BLAZE IT UP!!!
