I'm liking the 10.5 wide. They look really good. Can you notice any power difference between these and the 31's? I'm also curious about mileage but i guess you don't know that yet.

I have about 200 miles on them and haven't noticed any difference in mileage. the nice thing is they are not much heavier then my 31's I do notice the power a little but its barely noticeable, I can still brake the tires lose when ever I want to. braking is the most affected you can feel a big difference trying to stop. still entirely manageable but noticeable

How's the clearance while turning? I know 31's to 33's is nothing to go crazy about, but do they rub any more then the 31's did?

At full turn I know they eat the rubber engine cover flaps....LOL

All be replacing my 31" BFG All Terrains in the summer as 4-5 years seems to be the max for them. For the price, 33's aren't that much.......neither are the 12.5" wide......just would need a new set of wider rims to accommodate the 33x12.5's...LOL

Shouldn't get much, if any rubbing.
They look good.
A little like pizza cutters, but honestly I always thought that size looked good on a stock ranger.

ya a little pizza cutterish but I agree it looks good and the do great in deep snow because they cut right down to the compact snow deeper down. went strait through stuff my buddies with 31's were getting stuck in. can't wait to have it locked with new axle and gears.
