No, you can do it. Just make sure to keep an eye on wear patterns, you might have to run a different pressure than stock to get a full tread contact.

I have 33x12.5 mt/r with 15x8 wheels with 3.75 bs. I don't think it would be a very good idea to mount these on a stock rim being they are only 7"? Wide I believe. And with factory bs you will have all kinds of rubbing even with a body lift

I run 285/75's (~33x11.50) on my stock 16x7's and run all my tires at 32psi and have even wear.

False. 33x12.50's on stock 7" wide wheels don't rub like crazy. Minimul rubbing because of the 4.25(?)" backspacing and the sidewalls are sucked in a little bit more than they would be if they were on 8" wide wheels.

I have been in rangers running that setup but it was only a 2" body lift with no t-bar crank or shackle. That rubbed like crazy

I am running 33x12.5x15 with full crank and I rub a full lock and rub like crazy off road. Maybe it's because i have tires with lugs on the side wall and those are all

Why would you suggest Terra Grapplers when hes looking at mud tires? Those things suck in the mud
