33x10.5x15

I know, I've done all the searches & I could spend hours finding what I need if I even find it.
I'm contemplating either a MT Classic Lock 16x10(5-4.5 bolt pattern)(4.5" backspacing) with the classic ring lock kit in black with a set of BF's T/A 265/75/16's which I believe since its under 32" tall they would fit with no Rubbing on my 05 FX4. But on the other hand do I just want to go for the gusto & do a M/T Classic Lock 15x10(5-4.5 Blot Pattern)(4 1/8" Back spacing) with the classic ring lock kit in black with a set of BF's T/A 33x10.5R15's..will these hit if I crank the TB 1" or should I go with a 32x11.50R15?

Rick

you dont want to run a 10" wide tire on a 10" wide rim.

run those tire sizes on 15x8 or 16x8

if you want a 10" wide rim run a 12.5" wide tire. but anyhting on a 10" wide rim will require lift, either a body lift or suspension lift.

you can run 265/76/16 on a stock wheel with no lift.

And don't get 4.5" rims. That is the stock backspacing. That ruins the whole reason for getting new rims and tires. Also don't buy a 10.5" tire to go on a 10", that is just plain retarded.

"Go for the gusto and get a 4 1/8" backspaced rim, whoa don't do it, lol.

If you want some rims, get them in 15x8's and get 3.75 backspacing. You can fit 33x12.50/15's on your truck stock.

Plus do a search on tire selection and wheel selection and you will find lots of answers.

Edit: Wrong thread I suck.

I will post something useful however since I can't seem to use the internet.

If you want to run the 33x10.5x15s a wheel with the same specifications as stock is required to keep them from rubbing off-road.

15x7 with 4.5 backspacing

Any less backspacing than that and the tires will rub the bedsides when flexed. Its a good idea to do some trimming anyway. I have a couple nasty cuts on the rears from before I trimmed some sheet metal away behind the rear flare

OK, thanks guys. I did do a search & everyone has either a different year Ranger or is asking about a different size tire. Like I said I'm not a newbie to forums & know what the protocol is. Instead of me spending HOURS to find an answer its easier for YOU to just answer the question in the 2 minutes it takes. If thats a problem just don't answer.....
Looks like I'll go with a M/T Classic Lock 15x8 5-4 1/2" with a 3 5/16 back spacing running a BF T/A 33x12.5R15.

Thanks again guys
Rick

You can run a 33x12.50 without a bodylift, many people have.

The 05 suspension is the same as the 99-06 4wd suspension. 33's are 33's, if one companies 33's fit most other's will too. With the exception of some super swamper tires.

Yes. But don't plan on doing heavy offroading with them like that.

Well, with all the $$ I've spent over the last month on the Truck & still have 2 $400 mods to do this week my funds have pretty much run out. I'll barely be able to get the tires & wheels much less any kind of lift....unless you want to contribute to my truck fund...
I am going with a M/T, just with the style that has the Ring so I can add a little black to the wheels.

OK, slight change in plans.....
I've been eyeing the Victory Nascar Haulers because of the fact they are black. Well...my downfall was when I walked into discount tires there they sat on the tires I wanted. So, I ordered a set of 16x8 5-114.3 -6GB wheels wearing a set of LT265/75R-16/D1 BFG-A-Terrain TA KO's.
I realize they aren't even 32's but close & maybe I won't have rubbing issues in any situation. Once I have a lift I'll kick it up to 33's but for now I hope I'll be ok.
