33 question

I was wondering how bad 33/12.5/ 15 will rub on a stock truck i have 33/10.5/15 on now and they dont rub at all. What will they rub on if they rub? and does any one have any pics of a stock truck with 33s on it also my truck is an 04 if that helps

Probably depends on the backspacing of the rims you are using and how wide the rims are. And, you won't be able to wheel, or hit speed bumps w/o issues. 3.5-4" of backspacing and you should be fine.

They should rub the UCA a bit. That's what I've heard from others. Larger backspacing on the rims will prevent it.

I ran 285/70-17's on mine and it would only rub at full turn, think the back spacing was like 4.5 or something

You mean less backspacing? Less backspacing pushes the rims out farther away from the control arms, causing less rub. Might cause rubbing w/ the fenders.

I put my 33x12.5's on my truck w/o a t-bar crank and I had no issues rubbing. Granted I only took it down the road a bit and back then removed them, but still, haha.

yep, meant less BS.

yeah you lose a lot of your travel with 33 on stock. rub at full clock of the wheel and no room to hit bumps or trails.
