33-13.50-16 on stock rims

Will 33-13.50 fit on stock rims without any issues I know I will have to run lower pressure to keep the center from wearing out prematurely.. Any advice would be appreciated. I have searched but cant find any good results

you would have to run about 10psi to get proper wear... which isnt safe...

honestly the answer is no.. they would be so bubbled...

15x8 atleast

Thanks thats kind of what I was figuring I also thought about running th 34-10.50-16 which would allow me to keep factory rims and run at normal psi but I like a little more meat on my tires but I think they would still look good I plan on going with the Interco LTB's my truck is just a go hunting drive around town probably looking at 7k a year on mileage

also you need to consider factory wheels are only 15x7 or 16x7 and have 4.5" back spacing larger tires and that backspacing usually arnt happy with stock suspension parts

no bigger than stock tires are good with stock suspension though, 13.5 might be alittle wider than you want to go, ive ran 315's on stock teardrops which are 12.5's and they worked fine and wore normally with 35psi

Anything 4 or less you'll be fine. The smaller the backspacing the more they'll stick out.

If you plan on running the 33/13.5 then I would get 15x10 wheel with 4 or less back spacing depending on how much you want it to stick out.

The actual measurement of that tire is 32.8" tall and 13" wide.

the actual measurement of 34/10.5/15 is 33.6" tall and 11.2" wide

I would just get a 15x8 wheel if you want to run that tire. The 34/10.5 will rub when flexed out, so you will need to trim and I'm guessing it will rub the bumper if you have a stock bumper and rub on the sway bar if you have a sway bar.

I don't know if the 33/13.5 will rub anywhere or not
