    If you stay on the stock wheels and you don't wheel it very hard, you can fit the 33x12.50's with some minor rubbing/trimming on the front fenders. No way on the 33's with anything wider than an 8" wheel on stock suspension/sheet metal. No way on the 35's period unless you lift at least 4" and stay on the 8" wheels you can fit 35's on 10" wheels with some front fender trimming and a 4" lift. If you don't want to trim at all, and use a 10" wheel, then you need 2 1/2" - 4" of lift for the 33's and at least 6" lift for the 35's. AFA where to buy, it depends on what you're looking for. America's Tire seems to have the best deals on the BFG KM's and AT's. Hope that helps some. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Yeah if you don't wheel hard, but need the slightly better ground clearance and look of fuller wheel wells, BFG's 33x10.5R15's fit stock wheels no problem, and TYPICALLY clear the body in all conditions. (I'm talking stock suspension here)

    Summitracing.com has good deals on Pro Comps right now. About $112 for 35x12.50x15 MTs, less for 33s and 31s. You might want to check it out. There are also different widths of stock wheels (ie: 15x6, 15x7, 15x8). Check the sticker on your driver's side door.

    The tires will fit the wheels no problem. As for fitting the wheelwells, the 33's will fit unless you really get it crossed up. I ran 36x12.50 TSL/SX's on stock 15x7 wheels with NO lift. I cut the front of the fenders some and beat the lip back on the rear of the fender opening. It fit with no problems.
