    I was wondering if they would fit until I buy the lift which should be in about a month ($$$$$). I just redid the entire body and the truck currently rides on a set of fugly rims mounted on thrashed 31's. I just placed the order for the 33's today. They should arrive by the end of the week. My question is, can I run the 33's on the stock springs? I will not even think of hitting the trails until I do the suspension, but I'm definitely not up for hacking the fenders at all. This thing is too nice. I'm just worried about rubbing on everyday driving. The stock springs don't seem to have any sag. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    It's different from Blazer to Blazer. Myne rubbed at full turn, just a tiny little bit. I actually cut the "fang" which is the little hook on the rear of the front fender, which was totally not visible (the cut, I mean). Put 'em on, and try it out. You'll see real quick if it rubs or not.

    I just put some on mine without a lift. They are rubbing a little on the rear edge so far. For my situation, I'm just going to cut an inch or two off the back of the opening and call it good till i lift it in a few months. :grin:

    On my 71 I have stock suspension(no body or suspension lift),2nd gen 8" factory ralley rims and 33x12.5"x15" All Terrain Radials.

    I've flexed my Blazer as much as my stock suspension will allow and I have NEVER had any tire rub.
