    The suspension is all new and done with so Im not going to get anymore lift. Question being, what size tire can I fit under without trimming or having trouble with. The tires on there now are 31" Michelin A/Ts, excellent tire but they dont fill the wheel wells up enough for me. Think 32"s would fly with no problems or is it possibly to stuff some 33"x10.50"s in there.

    it has something like a 1 3/4" lift from our stock '81. there are more pics on my photo album, i'll get that link in a little bit.

    Ummm....I'd go 32's. That way you'll only have minimal rubbing. LOL!

    unless you get really twisted up, 33's should do you fine. i never rubbed on my 89 with no lift. i don't run the rubicon, you understand, but i wheel.

    This is what 33x10.5's look like on factory wheels, with no lift http://www.dorianyeager.com/frankentruckpics.html I made no attempts to thumbnail the pictures, so you narrow band folks will just have to suffer for a bit as they load. Sorry.

    Will post pictures of my 33x10.50's soon. Just installed today.
    It is a daily driver, clears fenders fine, have not twisted yet, and don't plan on it.

    I would go with 32x11.5 I have had those on my blazer since I got it and there has never been any rubbing. I have heard that 33's will fit but you will rub at full turn or under compression, but now i have a 4" lift ready to go on so 33's will be no problem.
