    anybody have a k2500 burb with 33s on it? as much as I like how the truck drives on the 245s I really need to get some wheels and tires on my burb. I'm looking at doing a AAL in the back and cranking bars to match. already have the bars up to match rear now but it didn't take much. curious what old girl would look like with a set up similar if anybody has one post up a pic or 2 and thanks! mine currently for reference. XD132 rims in natural aluminum and 33in interco trxus sts radials are what I plan on running.

    How does it ride now? Going to larger tires will make it feel a bit more sluggish...Will you regear?

    I just bought a GMT800 2500 Suburban and it has LT265/75/R16s (32"?) It has 4.10 rear end. My brother drove it to my place on the freeway and he said it felt pretty strong. I only drove it around town, so don't know yet. It's a 2WD, but has torsion bars front and the guy cranked them so it sits leveled. Could easily fit 33" tires.

    I'm not a fan of the leveled look and I actually bought it for my wife, so I will readjust to factory front height soon.

    I ran 33s on a K2500 I had years ago. They were a fat tire, and rubbed some on the very bottom. It was a 454, didn't notice any loss in power...

    if i feel the need i will step up to a 456 or 488 gear, i have 410 now and it did fine on the old 265s. the 5.3 in her is a runner so i have no doubts 33s would be a issue. only concern i have is it making my 6300lb camper harder to pull if so i will regear

    Good to know. Thank you! I'm due for a lift soon and going 6" but I have brand new 33s that I'd rather not change out right now so I like to see examples of that setup that look as good as yours.

    Man the 33s look good with that 6in, I originally wanted a 6in but didn't want 33s to look small or to run 35s.

    Think the low offset wheels help a fair measure.
