32's or 33's?

I know I said I wouldn't be able to get tires until I start taking up complete payments on the truck, but I may be able to swing some within a few checks. My question is...

Should I go with 32's or 33's?

I plan on getting BFG All terrains. I dont offroad very much, so rubbing from flexing isn't really an issue. If I need to crank the tbars, that is okay too. I have actually cranked them about 1/2 an inch already, and don't mind cranking them some more if needed. I also plan on getting a 3 or 4" lift at some point, which points me toward the 33's even more.

But it never hurts to get a second opinion. Would I be okay running 33's around town for a few months with a tbar crank? I know the Sport Trac frame is different than a ranger's so I was just wondering.

Thanks!

OK ben are you going to do what here. you are gonna need a superlift or body lift or some kind, and to run the 33's a stock sport trac 33's do not fit well at all. it needs to be body lifted or suspension or something. now like are you keeping those 16's? you could run a 265x75x16 right now stock no rubbing at all. now a 285x75x16 you will need to crank a little but not to much no to step up to a like 305x75x16 you are talking a lift some how...

Hmm....it seems like it would make more sense if I just waited for the lift and did it all at once. That's probably what I will end up doing.

I maxed out my tbars and trimmed alot and still couldn't get my 33s to keep from rubbing entirely. I say go for a body lift and get some 33s when you do. For now, MAKE YOUR PAYMENTS!

Yeah I understand that tires for 15" wheels are cheaper, but I don't have that option. Easier said than done selling the girls rims :) She is a Criminal Justice Major and has a baton under her bed. If I even thought about selling the wheels, she'd have me handcuffed to her bed post and beat the crap out of me before I could even explain the price difference.

Yes, this face would do that.


Thanks for the pics Zach. That gives me a good idea of what it might look like.
