got tax return, need new rims and tires

just like the title says. I want to get the Mickey Thompson Classic II's. Probably go with 15x10 and our lug pattern is 5x4.5, right? Anyone know the cheapest place to get a set of these? I'm pretty set on 33's, but should I go with 10.5 or 12.5? Why would I go 12.5 on a 10.5 rim? I'm new to the whole rim and tire matching thing. Thanks for any suggestions

BTW: I will be ordering a 3" bodylift to go along with the new wheels and tires

From what I've read using the search engine I've come to the conclusion that I myself with my FX4 would be safe with 15x8's without rubbing wearing 32x11.5x15's. I would love to put on 15x10's wearing 32x12.5x15's but I don't want to lift my truck & I believe they say they will hit.

um, is your truck lifted???? cause if not, i wouldnt go with 15x10's, that will be no good, you wont be able to fit 33's withough any lift unless you get some 10.5inch wide tires and use them on stock rims because of the backspacing they have, 10.5 inch wide tire and a 10 inch wide rims is retarted get that out of your head, a 12.5 is the norm on a 8-10 inch wide rim, we need more info on what your putting it on......


15x10's ARE GAY!!!!!! unless your on 35's or bigger...........

ok, so I'll go with the MT Classic II's in 15x8(found for $413 shipped), a buddy of mine owns a tire shop and is ordering some buckshot mudders 32x11.50, hes getting them to me for a little over $100 per tire, free mount and balance. Does this sound like a good deal/setup?

with 33's will it rub when I turn with a bl? My buddy seems to think it will, thats why he steered me to the 32's. Also I do not want to trim anything to make it fit.
