Default 32's or 33's???

Can't decide: 32x11.50's or 33x10.50's

Think I'll have any clearance issues? I really don't.

I've got both. Can't say I really prefer one over the other but I run my 32's from first snowfall to spring. I've got chains for the 32's and no worry about the chains hitting anything when they are on.

With my 33's I would probably have to worry so I just run them from spring until first snowfall. Once the 33's are done I'll probably just stick with the 32's from here on out.

where do you rub? I know a lot of people say they will rub in the front but I'm more worried about the rear rubbing than anything. I have everything you have but the t bar crank and who knows, might already be cranked but I think I'll have plenty of room just road driving.

I don't rub with the 32's at all. I do rub mainly in the back at full flex, not so much up front unless at full flex and the wheels turned sharp. I have trimmed up front a bit on the wheel well and much less on the rear of the flare in the back.

Thanks! I assume you mean 33's about the rubbing at full flex. One more question, which do you prefer the look of? My buddy saw me the other day and said "you need a bigger tire, it doesn't look right the way it's sitting" I have 31's now, been lifted for 3 years, waiting on those to wear out.
Also, you are one of the more knowledgeable guys one here...how big of a pain in the *** do you think it would be to swap an LT1/4L60E into the ZR2? I have a good running one and at this point, I've decided to keep the ZR, so that and a solid front axle and I would be done. Let me know what you think.


PS
I was looking at your blazer, I think ours are almost identical. You still running your stock wheels?

Yes, meant to say 33's at full flex. And 31's do look to small once you do a little bit of lift.

I like the look of both. I have the 33's on the stock rims and the 32's on some 15X8 black steelies. You already have a 4L60E unless you have a manual transmission. Never heard of anyone putting in an LT1 but I can't imagine it would be any harder than an LSX swap.

I know, but the camaro 4L is slightly beefed up to the one that's in the zr. The whole reason is to put a 6.0+ LS?/T56 into the camaro, and the lt1 is a super strong good running one with 115k or so? so I figure why not? almost +100 hp and tq, increased gas mileage, smoother. I would also have a 4.3/4L combo to put in a little rock buggy. I don't know, much to think about.
