Alright, I am thinking about doing the dive and doing the spindle lift and putting 33's on. I know the RIGHT thing to do is to get aftermarket rims with some proper b/s and width. I want to jump the gun a little. Put on my lift and get some 33x12.5x15 buckshots. I know brian will have to hook me up here...
Whats you opinion? I know Deviousfred did a 3" BL on 33x12.5x15(x7) stock alcolas and he is running fine. I did a search for it and thats who came up. It's a white Lvl2 truck...05 i think
Anyways...I have enough money to buy it in the next couple days...I'm thinking about doing it.
I know it's not right...but for a few months would it be ok to run that 12.5 on a 7 wheel? I rotate my tires every 3k and they are always balanced and everything.
Oh yea...i read over on ORR that they were saying how you are LESS likely (actually they said almost impossible) to break a bead on a 12.5" wide tire on a 7" wide rim because the tire has 5.5" over the rim. They said it is more likely to break bead on a 10" wide rim...hmmmmmm
08 Cummins Mega Cab, 7" on 37
02 Explorer Sport
08 Brute 750 on 29.5
with 12.5s your minimum recommended wheel width is 8. you shouldnt have more than 4" of tired outside of the wheel.
acully this sounds odd as hell but of you mesure the BFG thread from side to side on a 33x12.5x15 its only like 10.5" from tread to tread. we did it at billz house after the lift i was suprised. and my 32x10.5x16 are like only 8" i think its more the side wall buldge idk it confuses me...
