    yes you can fit them on no problems....the only thing to watch for is the backspacing of the rims.....thats what would cause any rubbing at full turn

    if you have equal backspacing they will be fine or close to it

    IE: like a 4 1/2 inch backspacing

    I depends on actual rim/tire combo. And how "tired" your truck might be. I had 33" on 10 with my 89 all stock. They just hit the front fenders when I turned. Just had to tyrim a little off. Same tires were on my stock 88 and didn't hit.

    What was the offset on your 10 inch rims?
