You will have to do a little trimming on the valance if they are bigger than 10.5".

Minor rubbing should look good though

And remember, if you get a 12.5.. there will be a big problem rubbing if you take it offroad and try flexing.. if you have fender flares, it may rip them right out of their sockets..


I agree with the above post.. perhaps hold onto the tires, and then drop 200 into a 3" bodylift =)

I had 33x12.50 on 15x8 rims and the only time it rubbed was when i was wheeling and it was flexed out. but like said above if you put a 3" BL on you will have no problem using that size tire.

I've had my 33X12.50 Mickey Thompson MTZs on both my 99 (fleetside w/flares) and my 03 stepside. They didn't rub on the front after a T-Bar crank and a minor trim of the valence. On the 99 they would pull off the rear flares off road. Off road in the 03 stepside no problems, no flares. My wheels are 15X8s.

Throw em on the truck and see how they fit. If you have problems off road save up for a body lift.

Most of the people dont take their trucks off road so that is probablly why they say they have minimal rubbing. If they were to give it one good flex they would probablly rip something off their truck!
