    I am wondering if I put 15 x 10's on my 33's. See what I am going for is the wider look. I am putting a 2.5" lift on my K5 and I want to fill the space. What do you guys think?

    I used 15x10's with 3 1/2" backspacing to mount my 33's on my 77 Jimmy 4" lift. I had them on 15x8's with the stock 3 3/4" back spacing (I dont know what I was thinking) for a while (sidewalls hit the draglink) and they deffinitly look wider and fit better on the truck (with 15x10's) sense there isnt a huge bulging sidewall to hit the draglink, but thatll depend on the backspacing too. I used the shallower spacing to bring the tires out further to get away from the draglink, it also helps fill the rear wheel wells but you will need flares if the local police are picky about these things (fronts stick out abou 2", flush with the body in the back) . Hope that helps. ~Mark~

    I sure would like to see a picture of your truck. Thanks for the post. I assume you have a 4X4.

    you may think it's funny, but itsnot

    Thanks Fellas. I am almost positive that I am going to put on the 33's with the 2.5 inch suspension lift. Again thanks for the help.

    I have 35x14.50's on 15x10's with 4 1/8" backspacing. I have about 5" of lift though.
