do you mean 10" wide wheels? If so I dont think they'll fit. but 32 on a 8" wide wheel should.

Uhh What??


If thats susposed to be rims.. then no dont but a 11.5" wide tire on a 10" rim.

What size rim do you have?

If its a 16" then go with 265/75R16
if its a 15" I'd probably go for 32x10.5 if its a stock rim.

Well do you and Mr. Roach want a cookie?.........wasnt trying to ruffle any feathers. Simply pointing out that it IS POSSIBLE to tuck 33's on a stock Gen. 4. Agreed, it may "rub life a ****" as you put it.......but it is still do-able. Although i wouldnt do it as anything other than a temporary fitment.

Cookies all around.....btw wanna help with a body lift(there will be more and bigger cookies) hahaha


But on a more serious note, one of my buddies is running 31x10.50 on 15x10's on his Gen 4 and hasnt messed with his torsion bars....i'll try to get you some pics of it today for a little reference. Although a 10.50" wide tire on a 10" rim isnt something i would recommend.....but people do it

trust me, he's already been informed of that............the possible hazzards of doing so along with the rediculous ballooning sidewalls should make anyone shy away from it
