    I want to get 33x12.5x15s for my k5. I have stock rims on my truck, I dont know how wide they are. Dose anyone know how wide the rims are, will I need to get new rims, and how wide of rims if I have to go that route.

    If they are 8": wide you should have no problem mounting them on the stock rim.I have 33/12.50/15 mounted on 15x8 rim's. I think the stock rims are 8" wide also (I might be wrong).

    The stock rims are either 15x7 or 15x8, I can't remember for sure. I had a set of General Grabber MT's, 35x12.5x16.5 on some 6.75x16.5 factory steel rims for 4 years and they did just fine...nice even wear and all. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yes, they will fit fine.
    I have had and seen quite a few 15 x 8's for factory sizes.
    The only 15 x 7's I EVER saw were on an '80, 1/2 ton I used to drive. I have never seen another set before or after that truck. Guess these 15 x 7's are RARE and might be worth something if someone ever got ahold of some. Just my guess.

    The factory aluminum bullet hole rims that came with my 89 were 15x7. It said so in the door jam on the information chart thing and we measured them at a tire shop. So the late model factory aluminum wheels are 15x7.
