    Why are you lifting a 2WD and why are you talking in bold to us?

    He's just goin for looks. He already stated that he was embarrassed to ask in a previous post. 33x10.50's or 33x12.50's is probably your answer.

    Pretty much like "mikey_d05" i am going for looks but also just something to play around with!!! I was thinking about buying a new truck, but i am a fulltime college student and didnt want to have that note and increase in insurance!!! I owe nothing on my truck and this was the best way I figured to give me a new look without the new NOTE!!!

    Sorry about the bold on that last post, it has been adjusted!!!

    So 33 x 10.50 x 15s....thats what i was thinking but wasnt sure!!!

    Thanks for the input guys. "Greg72", hope I didnt offend you with my bold text!

    Thanks for the intelligent words "fordslayer383" especially since you failed to even answer any of my questions!!! I may be ignorant when it comes to lift kits, rims/tire fittings...but the ignorance that you have just displayed is unsurpassed!!! (unsurpassed = can not be outdone)

    Thanks for entertaining us all!!! Next time try to be a little more constructive with your comments!!! I wont be offended that you are a FORD man and that you dislike CHEVY, but try to be a little more helpful to the question next time!!!

    THANKS!!!!

    EXAMPLE of constructive help!!! (made up)
    It has been my experience that Chevys tend to have major suspension issues with breakdowns and such...however, if u already got your mind set on doing this I would suggest a rim/tire fit of no larger than 33x10.5x15 on a 15x8 rim!!! Good Luck with that...if u decide to go with a real truck (FORD) let me know!!!! hahaha

    My friend has an S10 with 3" of susp. lift and we just put fiberglass fenders on it. He's running 31xsomethings now but I think he was testing out a bigger combo today. I'll talk to him tomorrow and let you know.

    EDIT: I run 33x12.50's on my DD which is a '93 fullsize with a 4" lift. So....I doubt you could get a way with a tire that size on an S-10 with only 1 more inch of lift. 33x10.50 is probably the largest you can run. Don't know why I didn't think of this earlier.

    don't know about the 12.50's but 33x10.50's sounds about right.
