This has probably been asked a hundred times but will 33x12.50xr15 fit on a 84 k10 without rubbing? I recently took a 3 inch body lift off that the previous owner installed. It looks like they will fit without rubbing but I have not tried driving it around yet. I want to get 31s but this is what I got for now.

Depends on the wheel being used, but there will likely be minor rubbing at the lower fender corners when turning and going over a bump.

The guy that I bought my 86 K15 from, said he used to run 33s on it with a stock suspension, and they didnt run the body at all, but he said they rubbed the steering arm or something like that so he took them off.
I run those exact same 33s on my blazer, and and they dont rub, but I've taken off so much weight, that it sits higher naturally so...

I run 33/12.50-15's on a K10 for near 40 years and they never hit/rubbed anything except the right side running board once in a while if bouncing through a turn. That was using GM 15x8 wheels. It would happen more when using 15x10's the short time I had the Jackman wheels on my 81 plow truck.

Probably will require a little clearance on the lower rear corners. You can cut the bottom of the fender behind the lip and fold it back and overlap it and you can hardly tell that its modified.

Thank you! It's my "other" Square. But I am sure starting to like it. Its easier to get in and out of, and it has a Big Block in it!
