    I have a 84 Jimmy that I put a 4 inch tough country lift on and 33x12.50 tires rub the rear of fender opening if I am turning out of my driveway. I thaught there would be no trimming needed.

    When I got my Blazer it had no lift and 33 - 12.50s on the stock rims and it did not rub. How much backspacing do your rims have. The less the backspacing the larger the radius that the tire will make when turning. I currently have 38s on a 4" lift with no rubbing but a lot of cutting. Time to cut.

    What is your rim back spacing?

    I've run 33x12.5 on stock rims (3.75in BS) and only 2in of lift with no contact.

    I have 15x10 us wheels with 4 inches of back spacing. The tires don't rub all of the time just when I am turning sharp backing out of my driveway where the dip is where the drive and road meet.
