Icon12 33x12.50's on 15x8 wheels

I know this topic has been discussed before, but i couldn't find it in the archives, so i apologize if I'm repeating what was discussed. Has anyone ran 33x12.50's on 15x8 wheels with a fabtech spindle lift? Is there any clearance issues? Does the front bumper need to be cut, etc. The front torsion bars are raised a bit to level the truck out, (if that helps with clearance, im sure it does)

I ran 33x12.5x15 on stock wheels (15x7) with 0.5-1 inches of lift for a year.

you also don't have the torsion bar setup, do you? You have coils?

33x12.5s are standard tire size for a spindle lift or the superlift. It gives a great stance and you won't have any fitment or clearance issues... So do it and get some pictures up already!

Yeah I have coils. But that really doesn't matter cause if I can fit them with that little lift you can fit them with more. Your truck is higher then mine is.

33x12.50's may be a standard size for superlift, but right on fabtech's website they say 32x11.50x15's are the recommended size. So im just double checking to see if anyone has ran them with the fabtech spindle lift. Don't want to spend the $1000 on tires and then they rub like crazy,wether its driving or a hard, turn you know.

TexasRanger: What size tires are you running and what size lift do you have?
