Stock Height /Wheel Size ?

84 Chevrolet 4x4, Appears to be stock height. Has 33.12/50 on factory rallies now.

Will 15x10 rims, with those 33.12/50 fit? Or will i have to take the fenders off.

I hate to ask this question, as I know its been covered before.

Yeah, it'll rub with a 10 inch wide rim.

Looks good, are those rims 8's? I think i've ran 33's on 10 inch rims before with no lift. I remember beating the fenders at the tire shop along time ago but i'm not sure if thats the time I tried to fit 35's on stock rim with no lift. lol

They're 10 inchers, they just have a shallow back spacing so they never rubbed.

Those certainly look like 8's, judging by the bulge in the sidewall, the hub is close to flush with the edge of rim, and they just plain don't stick out very far. The extra width can't be made up with additional backspacing do to tie rod clearance. Just to clarify, rim width is measured on the inside between the beads.

Also, I'm guessing you only drive on flat ground? That would rub just turning into my driveway.

*edit* Are you sure that's not lifted 2 inches?

This is stock height with 33's on an 8.5 wheel. The fenders have been clearanced a little, and it's still REALLY close.

Now you've got me to wondering. I'm not exactly sure if its stock height or not.... It may be lifted 2inches in the rear at least.

Obviously these aren't the best pictures to determine if its lifted or not.

Well i bought the wheels new, and the blazer was completely stock. And im pretty certain the springs are stock, they are completely flat and are almost reverse bowed. And i never had them rub after i cut the corners. i even flexed it out no problems. But those tires were close to bald so that could have helped.

It looks stock height, maybe a 1 inch body lift? Hard to tell. the top picture makes it look a little taller.
