    I just brought my Grandad's Jimmy home to be with me. I have decided to go with the 33x12.50 BFG ATko when I get tires this week. What width rim will allow me to fit these tires with the stock suspension? (The stock 15x6's are still on it.)

    I doubt those tires are ever going to fit with a stock suspension. 15x8 rims would be better to fit, but they still wouldn't make the tires "shrink" enough. I'm going to run 33x12.50's also on my Blazer, but with 15x10 rims. And I'm slapping on a 2.5 inch lift to do it.
    Please, before you do anything else, put in a steering box support for the frame, before it cracks.
