33" ssr's

I think I am putting this in the right place. ok so I have 5 33x12.50x15 super swamper ssr's on 15x8 ar767's and at first i was thinking I was going to do a body lift and use these tires because they are basicly like new used for offroading only (on my jeep) maybe 500 road miles if i'm lucky. I have changed my mind now, I think i am going to go with no lift and use either 32x11.50 or 33x10.50 BFG muds and stock alcoa wheels for a low CG. So my question is how much do you think I could get for the ssr's and which size tire would you guys go with.

i got an idea have all us mich guys come over and supply food and we can body lift the truck in about 6 hours and you can run 15x10 with some 33x12.5 BFG's and it will look nice

we tend to do good work take a look

i all ready have 33x12.50's so why would i want to buy new 12.50's if that is what i was going to go with and also i don't like 12.50's on a 10" rim because when you air down you are more likely to pop a beed.

as for the body lift part I have some future mods in mind for the bumpers and think they will be easier without the body lift.

i know it would be a down grade, to me the ssr is the best radial mud terrain out there but I am just kicking around some different ideas in my head. My thinking is that i am going to need new tires soon i have 46000 miles on my BFG's so i was thinking sell the ssr's and take the money and by another set of BFG's but 32 or 33's. Also if I don't go with a body lift my rear bumber i am going to go with will be easier make work and alot stronger sense i will not have to raise the brackets to make up for the difference.

If youre goin for LCG just get some fiberglass or somethin. I have a body lift and I would have done things a bit different. with some fiberglass front fenders youll get those 33s ni there easy.

You can get different bulge sze fiberglass, but with a smaller bulge, i think it looks sweet...

then what do you do about the rear a 33x10.50 almost hits at full flex so i can only imagine what a 12.50 will do.
