Bigger tires!
« on: September 28, 2019, 12:16:23 PM »
Just a quick question about my 86 k10 4x4. If I can fit 33x10.50s on my truck with no lift, would it be reasonable to think that I could fit 38x12.50s with 5 inches of lift and get the same results?(no rubbing) Thanks in advance guys!

33s will fit depend on on the wheel

On stock rally wheels they will fit

A five inch lift will fit 35 or 36
 38s wonít fit with a five inch lift

Skyjacker will tell you a 6" lift is good for 37", 12.5" wide tires with 3.5" to 4" backspacing.
