33"s+stock rim?

Not sure what forum to put this in, but wheels are part of the suspension I guess. Will 33"x12.5x15 fit on my stock ranger rim? And far as fitting on the truck will I need to do "spacing" which I believe is pushing the tires out to move away from side of frame so they don't rub?

Thanks for the help

you can run 33s on stock wheels with no problems that i have ran into and i had wheeled my truck very hard with 33s and stock wheels, BUT the center of the tread is going to wear out ALOT faster than if you had a wider wheel. id plan on getting new wheels if you are going to spend cash on the tires otherwise they are gonna wear out alot faster

You said 15x8 rim, would that work better than a 15x10. I am getting bfgoodrich 33" mud km's if that helps and what kind of backspacing do you recomend? Thanks again.

I've read that a 8" wide wheel seems to work well with a 12.5 tire. I would recomend anywhere from 3.25" b/s to 4"

33's on 15x10's look like a square. I have 38's on 15x8's.
