    i run 33x12.50's with 3.08's, it isnt that bad, altho i have the 350\sm465\np208 combo, i experience butt loads of torque, but it could go faster. its faster then my friends blazer with a 350\700r4\np241 with 31x10.50's but yea, if you got the motor for it, id say go for it, and get more opinoins

    Cant be any worse than 33s with 2.76s. It wasnt too bad until my tranny started messing up. Don't expect to do too much offroading in high range though.

    3.08's I think the only time they are not sluggish is when you are 235/75/15's /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You should plan on getting a tailgate sticker that says "woof woof". And I hope you don't tow with your K5- with the taller tires and 3.08s it will take you forever to get up to speed.

    You think thats bad... i had a very worn out, smoke blowin 305 on 3.08's and 35's! if i floored it in 3rd gear, there was almost no acceleration... good thing i changed both out to 350 and 4.56, i couldnt be happier... unless i had a 383 stroker =)
