33x12.5R15 or 33x11.5r15 33's are good starting ground with most 4" lifts. The bigger question would be what Type of tire do you plan on running or what type of wheeling you plan on doing.

What motor, trans, axles? Any modifications done? and as mentioned before what do you plan on doing with it?

How are we supposed to tell you what to do when you don't give any info?

Looks like he answered it








You have a D28 ttb front and a 7.5 rear. Most likely 3.45's in the gears. With all that said, I would do 31'-32's. 33's might be a bit much with the clutch and 3.45's (assuming of course). As far as wheeling with the d28, just pay attention to turning the wheel to hard a giving throttle in 4wd. And if wheeling and a tire comes off the ground get out of the throttle and don't hit the brake.

I wheeled a 86 B2 on 33's welded front and rear on the d28 and 7.5 in mud bogs for a couple yrs and I could keep shafts together pretty damn well all considering.



home made 2" Susp lift and 3" body lift and 33x12.50

Buddies on a I think a 4" rough country or superlift. I can't recall its been yrs. but he also had 33x12.50
