Default Dick Cepek Mud Country 33 15.50s

I just installed a 4in rc lift on my 86 k5 and have been needing some bigger tires. Well Saturday I ran across a heck of a deal on some Dick Cepek Mud Countrys for $250 and they had 60-70% tread. And I couldnt pass them up for that. But what size wheel do I need for them? And I was also wondering if they will rub on my blazer?

15.50s? thats going to be insanely wide, probably be horrible in the snow and ice, which you probably dont have to worry about to much. i would say a 12inch wide rim would work fine, maybe a 10 inch?

i have 33 x 14.00 boggers on 15x10 rims and they are fine, dont think another inch would make it look to bad.

ive ran k5s with 33 12.50s with 4 inch lifts, and they were all different i think mostly due to the age of the lift and rusted body parts sagging lower then they should have. i have 33 12.50s on my k30 now with a 3inch lift and seems the only time they rub is if i crank the wheel and back fast into the driveway when i hit the bump, its a mall cruiser and doesnt see any action offroad though. you can always trim the fenders if they rub

Yea there wide but they should look good on it. The only problem is that ive heard that the wide wheels affect my turning radius. And yea dont get much snow down here. And I will probably order some 15x12s for it. If I cant find some used around here.

Are the Dick Cepeks real noisy on road? Id like to use a set for winter, but it does snow all the time here.
