OK i have a 96 Z71 front bars are cranked all the way and there is a mild block and leaf in the rear. IM going to be runnin a set of 16x9 wheels ... now as for tires im looking at Superswamper LTB 33x13.5x16.

Will these clear on my truck ? All the research I was looking at says they will with trimming the front valance but i was curious if anyone else has run a similar setup.

They should fit with some trimming. My buddy runs 33x12.50s on 15x10's with 4" BS on his OBS. He did take off his front valance though too. I guess depending on the offset and backspacing of the wheels your getting will depend how much you'll need to trim to fit the 13.50's

Wider wheels/tires require either more lift or more trimming to clear them

I run 33x13.5x15 LTB's on 15x8s with cranked level with 3" block out back and a 1" body lift. They rub and they rub hard wheeling.

Also if these tires are for a Daily Driver i would advise against the LTB's, they are soft and wear fast.

Stock rims with 34x10.50 would fit for sure...wider rims and tires might rub.
