you can fit 33s

But a little FYI, with just a body lift and 33x12.50s on the stock 15x7s I rubbed the rad arms at full lock, after i got the money i got 15x8s with 3.75 BS and it moved them out enough so it didn't rub anything

yes evan this is like 3 times now you have to look at the year of the truck ok.... he has a 93-97 truck completely different beast on lifting


ok get eather front leveling blocks or leveling springs one or the other. and the body lift and you should be able to fit 33x12.5x15 on 15x8 with no more then a 3.25BS thats pushing it
