    <font color=purple> i just purchased a set of rally rims for $100 with caps and rings and I want to put tires on them that won't be like go cart tires but also ones that won't be so close to the 33's I have that it wouldn't be worth doing. The rims are 15x8, what I'm looking for would be a tire that would be smaller than 33's but not too small either. Also, what brands would you guys suggest ? I was looking at some 30x9.5's today but still not sure how they'd look on them. I'd appreciate any help you could give.

    I've got 31x10.5x15 BF Goodrich All terrain KO's on my factory ralley wheels. I love them! They are a much improvement over the 235 70r 15's that were on it. My truck is not lifted or anything and I have no prob with clearance. As for tires I would go with the All Terrains. Nice on road and good traction in sloppy conditions also. Just my 2 cents.

    I'm also looking for new tires on my K-5
    Is there any problems with low RPMs with 32x11.5s
    I currently have 31x10.5s and it seems to be low
    as it is, its an 84 with a 305ci

    <font color=purple> thanx for the replies guys but I'm looking for a good tire that's smaller than the 33's that I have on my 15x10 spokers. I don't want a super small tire but I don't want one real close to my 33's either. I have a 4" lift and I want to fit my Blazer in the garage, so I need smaller than 33's for my rally rims......... any ideas ?

    What size do you want? 32X11.50, 31X10.50, 30X9.50, 235X75R15 are all available in just about any tire you look at.

    32x11.5's are about the only common size you are going to find. IMO the 11.5 makes them suck, but what are you going to do...them or 31's, which IMO don't fill the wheel wells enough. (thats why i too run the 33x10.5's, but I understand why you can't) Even a 32x10.5 would be better, but to the best of my knowledge, no one makes an affordable one. A 32" tire will be considerably (probably 1") shorter than a true 32 inches.
