if they don't, wait a few thousand miles. you don't have bigger wheel wells though and your truck is lower than ≤07's, your flares are just bigger

3) If i was worried about a stiff ride i would have bought a cadillac.
so you blow money on tires thatll never see dirt for the fact you wanna look nice? we call that road candy. waste of money IMO. stock gearing and 33's for the cosmetics haha smart. practically > looks 95% of the time

looks good, I ran that setup for a long time and you can flex no problem

face it, most people are on here are bodylifted on 33s and dont wheel or do anything, just drive it around. I do the same, I even have mud terrains, regaurdless of the fact you like it and it dosnt look like everyone else. does look good tho

Hey try-hard I was clearly asking a question to a member who contributed to this thread, not even the OP who is recieveing negative comments, why does it matter to you that I ask questions? Why would you waste the money? Sorry but asthetics is not worth 800$ in tires lol. Again, it was a question to another member, not the new OP. Step down

Most comments have been directed toward the OP and the idea of mounting 33x12.5 tires on stock rims or narrow rims.

He didn't think it was a waste of money for getting those tires, neither did Sully.

Who cares if he doesn't wheel, he can do whatever he wants. Maybe it's his DD and he doesn't want to destroy it

I'm surprised how critical everyone is

so given that he is running narrower wheels and less off set then, say me or any one else, that would in fact cause less stress on the wheel bearing then i do. and as said, only ting he will probly rub is s/b.

dont be a hater, there are plenty of full size guys that bump up to a 35 on stock wheels and no one says a damn thing. its not like he put nitrous on a stock motor, give him a break.

If you're gonna freak out on people for lifting, running off road tires, and generally "wasting" money on their truck you are in the wrong place. I would say 50% of the members here never take their trucks off road. Many are lifted. And most of us (like 75%+) go off road less than 3 times a year yet still run oversized tires and lift. We are all about aesthetics. Look good, look big, spend money on **** we don't need. Rangers :)

Correct. More offset and back spaced wheels put loads of strain on the wheel bearings and ball joints. Someone with 33s on stock rims is doing less damage than someone with 33s on Mickey Thompsons or Cragers.

well we should just name this barbie-forum then. Id hate to be road candy. All for lifts and **** that make a difference but lifting for asphalters means you dont fit in parking garages lol "yay"! haha bigger tires = worse mpg, frankly very few people gear up and new rims (often) = more weight on an axle that sucks to begin with ya know. just dont see the reason.

why wouldnt yall want to be best at what you drive. people who drive 95% concrete and 5% off road to **** on the highway shouldnt buy anything but radials right? why blow the extra 400+++ bucks for a tire thats just gonna get eaten away? i just dont get it I guess. performance and practicality are king IMO

and no freaking here. I asked a question. dude tries to talk down then I will set it straight. I did nothing wrong by asking a question to sully.

Well Thanks to the guys who commented on the truck. I run 33's because I like them. Just because I dont beat the **** out of my truck doesnt mean it cant look good. Alot of haters on here. Definitly will be the last time I bother posting anything.
