well a 33" tire for 16's is usually metric, which is

285/75/16 - 33-11.5"
305/70/16 - 33-12.5"

The main thing is that 33/15 combos are cheaper then the combos running 16 inch wheels. Thats why most people go with a 15 inch wheel instead.

How come your running an 11.5 inch tire on a 16x10 wheel. Wouldnt it be a lot better to run it on a 16x8?

BTW how are those mud grapplers in the mud? I want a pair but if they are not any better then my ND Iroks then i cant see paying an extra $100 per tire.

well the mud grappler 33x11.50 actualy measures 33.07x12.01 and acceptable rims range from 8-10 inches. plus i like the way 10's look. and as far as performance, i'll take a MG any day over an irok in mud, dirt, sand...they just have crazy traction. plus they ride really smooth too for such an aggressive tire. the only complaint about them i have is the treadwear......it could be better but i still think they are worth the extra money

AND why do yo only want a pair?? 4 might be a better choice

Are the MG's really that much better then the iroks? Thanks for the measurements for the 33x11.5's because those are probablly the ones id get if i ever bought them.

Yeah i meant id like to buy a set as in (4), not a pair!
