Hah! I guess he must have cut a lot and not taken it off road. I put my 33x12.50s with 15x8s on my sport trac for a test before the body lift and there was no way it was going to work.
Even after the body lift, I rubbed the fenders on the way home every time I turned, but I didn't have to trim too much to clear under the full range of travel. Even then, the rear tires rubbed on the inside of the rear fender (the bed side) but it didn't cause any problem, just shined one section.

looks like he takes it off road to me. wheel width and offset have more to do with fitting tires, than actual tire diameter most of the time.


nice ride dude. i seen one on high lifter awhile back that looked similar.

Okay I'm talking about different off-roading besides running through mud, lol. Point taken though.
Width and offset do have a lot to do with it, I'm just saying there is a fair amount of trimming to work 33s in there to prevent rubbing with full use of the suspension. I had to cut a fair amount of plastic and some metal to fit mine without rubbing, with a 3" body lift, sway bars out and non-cranked bars.

de cranked bars and no sway bar i bet you also had a decent amount of flex too.

they actually fit very well, i was very skeptical about buying 33's, i was about to buy 32's but 33's sounded cooler haha. surprisingly i didnt have to trim very much either, i didnt have to use any heavy duty tools or anything, my main tool was a pair of heavy duty nail clippers haha, it was just about an inch of cladding inside the fenderwell that i had the trim that you couldnt notice even if you looked at it. ill try and post pics of it sometime later this week. and thank ya'll for the welcomes!

haha thanks, honestly i think its the last time i will wheel it though only because its my daily driver and i paid for everything on my truck and i want everything to last as long as it possibly can, unlike most high schoolers my age who make their parents pay for everything and have things done for them. i love to keep it clean, i spend about 2.5 to 3 hours handwashing it weekly when its not 30 degrees outside, which many people my age dont do very much haha but i really hope it pays off, my dream goal is to get it in a magazine haha but everyone knows thats not an easy task. especially when you have a key scratch that runs all the way down both doors on the passenger side :((( good thing im in an auto class!
