You need to give us a desciption of your truck. Also what offset is on the wheels and how much lift does your truck have?

When you get the chance, fill out a signature in your profile. It'll help us help you.

At the moment it has no lift, its normal height and they should fit well. Im not very good with this types of wheels so I dont know a lot of what I need to install them. And its a ranger 99 4cyl

road candy. But yes, it sounds like you will have to purchase and install: spacer/F150 coils/lift coils/spindles, pick one

I'm assuming it's a 2wd and if that's the case you need to lift it. No lift and your gonna not just rub but touch everywhere. That's if you can get the tire in the wheel well.

Another thing, which spacers are you talking about? Wheel ones or the aforementioned coil spacers?

Thank you for the information. If you have a 2wd with 15x10 wheels and 33s, it is going to be a completely stuffed wheel well. We need backspacing information.

Are you ready to look something like this?

Its not possible to run a 33x12.5 and a 15x10 on a two wheel drive without extensive cutting to the fenders and bumper.

On a 10" wide wheel? About a 30" tire is all you will fit.

I had 31/10.5 on my 2wd not lifted and it rubbed whenever my tires were turned all the way.. Seems minimal but while i was lifting it I noticed it had eaten a hole in my wheel well. If they rub dont get them!
