Too wide for an IFS set-up. I have 38x15.50's on 15x10's on my SAS'd Ranger, and that looks just right. But 33x15.50's on 15x12 rim? Nah, sorry, not my taste.

Not to mention is it even legal? My cousin had a 'Yota that looked like that years ago here in Michigan and he got pulled over many times by the state police for the tires being too far out past the body work and bumpers too high.

i thought there was no law that 'required' bumpers on a truck? i heard that from somewhere reliable which is why it stuck in my mind.

I'm sure the laws vary from state to state but, here in Michigan we have laws that state bumper height as well as mandatory bumpers, even on trucks.

I'd say anything over a 12.5 is too wide on 33's. Furthermore, I wouldn't want to pay for the ball joints, bearings, etc on that thing.

It's asking for breakage, lol -- but if that's what you like, and you're willing to put up with it, no problem, lol.

What I dislike is guys that do that and say it won't cause problems. Give me a break...
