    OK I've searched for the answer and now I'm more confused. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I'm gona hold off on the lift kit for a while but I need to get new tires. Will Pro Comp M/T's fit?? The size I'm looking at with wheels is

    33/12.50R15 M/T 15x10 A/E0589 w/3.62" backspacing

    or

    33/12.50R15 M/T 15x8" A/E0589 w/3.25" backspacing

    Which will fit best on a stock 89 K-5?? I plan on zero rates and 1" body lift soon but probably after christmas.

    With the 15x8 inch rims you might be able to drive it on the street without rubbing, with the 15x10 inch rims I think you would have rubbing even on the street when turning. This of course depends on much much your front springs have sagged with time. I put 15x10s with 33/1250s on mine without lifting it and I had to cut both the front and the rear of the front fender to keep it from rubbing. If you don't mind cutting your fenders a little go for the 10x15s.
