33x10.50 on 15x8 w/ 3.75 BS

33x10.50 on 15x8 w/ 3.75 BS

I'm looking for someone running this combination already. I'm thinking there might be minor rubbing on the front valance and maybe rear flares if I was flexed out.

That BS should move the tires out 1.75" over stock (if I did the math right) and 8" should widen out the tire over the 7" wheel it is on now.

I don't have the $$ for lift but any other suggestions are welcome (manual t-case so no BL).

Anyone seen this combo or have pics. I've searched and found some close combos but not this one exactly.

Thanks.

I have 32x11.5x15 with 15x8 and that back spacing and I have had the rear rub when I'm flexing it out. The front rubs too sometimes, with the valance trimmed. I don't have my t-bars fully cranked either.

I know it can be done but I don't want the have to redo the shifters and boots and floor and all that to make it work. Plus my GF is only 5'3" and the step up is big enough all ready.

I think bodylift or trimming are your options...try it with trimming, then get a bl if u need it...

I ran the same setup without a body lift and it rubbed the fenderwells a bit on the bumps during wheeling. Surprisingly, with the torsion bars cranked up I never had any rubbing on the bumper or the frame.

Here it is pre-body lift with torsion bars cranked

*Luckily one of the guys wheeling with us was skinny enough to fit under there.

Right now I get a rub on the driver side fender well on bumps as well. My major concern was the tires being 1.75" further out and rubbing flares or valance when turning.
