    I have 32's on my stock Jimmy, they dont rub... you could try 33's... they will probably fit /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    35's if ya don't mind trimming some metal.

    33's if ya don't mind the occasional bump into the sheet metal while flexed.

    35's sitting still.................

    [/ QUOTE ]Just looking at your rig, and keeping in mind you're into the high speed thang, I was thinking you might have a 2.5" lift.

    I put 33x12.50s on mine without lift, and had to trim just a little off of the rear of the front fenderwells (just the little fang) but if you plan on wheelin hard, you might have to trim more (look at my pics on webshots.com under WRFDfirefighter184).

    It just looks tall for some reason, always has. When I first got it, it had 32's on it and it even looked taller against other stockers. The front springs these days have about 1" of negative arch into them, they are so old.

    *shock*

    Always creeps me out when I see pics of BRB, Fumes, and other Lounge people's trucks

    "What, you have a truck?"
