Looks like im going to have to go with 32x11.5x15 on a 15x8 in rim. I plan on doing a BL but not really in the near, near future!!

i ran my 33x12.50s on my truck stock without a t-bar crank for about a week and a half, i had to trim the fenders a little. you'll be fine.

I'd likely go with 32x11.5s also. I think that's what my truck will get once the 31s wear out.

if u can fit 35's with just a body lift, i would hope u can fit 33's w/o the body lift, just be ready for new noises lol


and who else besides me has done 8 turns on the t-bar? lol

The reason you don't have rubbing issues is because 285/75R16 is a 33x11.50. That 1 inch makes all the difference.

depends on who u ask..
it isnt quite 33 lol, i just call em 33's

some people call em 32.24 some go up to like 32.8X

just thought i would throw in my .02


whats the max-ish turns from a stock truck? i have a feeling the guys grandpa who owned my truck and pulled the smoker didnt touch em... im at 8.. 2" would be cool, is 4 more feasible?

This is all great feedback and all, but why not toss on a BL since it sounds like your not wanting to spend a lot by the torsion crank. You could do a BL and no crank and fit those 33's cause you have the same suspension travel but body is up 3"s, or you could crank them on top of that and it would look great!

Just my 2

if you are not going to put on a lift in the very near future go with 32x11.5R15s *they will even save you more) and they will fit great. I park next to Tommy (TommyC) every day at school and man they look good *jealous*

BUT if you are going to slap on a BL soon then go with the 33s

id just go with 32's to be on the safe side. and if you wheel at all youre gonna want a little more flex than you would with 33's as of right now. when you get a bl though your gonna want 33's

My stock 31's rub on the sway bar with no t-bar crank. Get what you want, everyone drives differently so no matter what tire size you get over 31's you will have to make some sort of modification.

So it sounds like wether or not 33x1250 will fit on a truck is determined by four things...
1) how much you flex
2) what you define as 'rubbing' vs. 'OK'
3) maybe a little about your truck and its unique characteristics
4) your rims

I'd say get what ever rims you want (no bigger then 10" wide....prob go 8") and then get 32's. you'll get better off. Why try to push your luck with 33's????

however, if you get a body lift, then go 33!
don't forget to consider your gear ratio either...if you have 3.73, you won't want 33's.

I could not see how 33x1250 could fit on my stock Ranger, ESPECIALLY on 15x10s. I could see 33X1050 though on 8" rims.
Just my opinion I guess.

Wow, guys I jumped on this morning and the wealth of knowledge is just pouring in!!!

Does anyone know the stock gear ratio for my rig (see sig)? If it is 3.73 then im going to be looking at gears. Cuz most likely i'll throw the BL on there and slap some 33s on there as well!!!!

with your 4.0 (even ohc) 3.73s will be fine with 32/33s.. but ofcourse 4.10s would always be nicer from an acceleration standpoint. So if you have the extra money go for it but if the rims/tires/lift? is going to max you out dont worry about having to replace gears immediatly

itl fit my buddy wess has a 1999 or 98 ranger 4x4 and he has his t-bars cranked a little and a BL and hes running 35x12.50"s on 15x8's and he barely rubs unless he flex's or at full turn i think youll be fine with just t-bar crank just dont be offroad with it..
