    Anyone runnin 15 inch wheels w/ 33X12.5s without a lift? If yes, are there any clearance issues?

    Right now I have 32x11.5s on 15x10 Eagle rims without a lift. I do get rub on the front fenders when the suspension becomes even slightly compressed. I am installing the Rough Country 4" front/rear spring lift on mine this coming weekend. That should clear me up to 35" without too much problem.

    I was wondering the same thing, Would they work OK with my stock rally wheels and no lift?

    I ran 33.12.50.15's on my 15 x 10 inch rims for 2 years and they worked great. Just a little bit of rubbing when i was getting loose. Go big...

    Thanks to all for the replys. I have 2 inch blocks front and rear, bought it like that, and know blocks up front are a hazard. So.....until I save enough nickels and dimes to do the front right, I was contemplating removal of the blocks.
