Identify these tires and ???'s

I found a killer deal on craigslist that I just don't think I can pass up. Found a set of almost new BFG AT's 33x12.5 on 15x8 rims. Guy only wants 500 bucks for the whole set. I don't necessarily like the rims, wouldn't be my first choice, but it's a great deal.

My question is... does anybody know what brand they are? If so, anybody have them on their ranger... preferrably a black or dark colored ranger. The pic I have is on his white ranger.

Also, I don't have a lift on my truck as of yet. Looking at the tire size chart... it says I should be able to run this size tire if I crank my t-bars. Not a big fan of the t-bar crank, but I would do it as a temp fix to run bigger tires.

mine fit without really cranking the bars any, just make sure they don't have such a large backspacing on them and you'd be fine.

Yeah, you can tell by the design and wheel center caps.

They look almost identical to these:

Gonna get the money together and go pick these up early this week. Will put em on the truck and see how they look. If I don't like them, I might consider selling them. Shipping might be pretty steep, and I've looked for prices but it's a discontinued wheel, so I can't get a price. My guess would be in the 80-100 range brand new. We'll see what kind of shape they are in. I'm excited, woo! Bigger meats FTW!

Haha, yea. 15x8's. I'll try to get backspacing measurements once I pick them up. I'm picking them up tomorrow. Gonna crank my t-bars and see how well they fit when I get a chance to on Friday. If they rub too much, and/or I hate the look of the rims, I'll be hanging on to the tires and selling the rims, and waiting to find something I like better and until I get a lift so there won't be so much rubbing. We'll see how it goes, and I'll post pics and info later.

Picked up the tires/wheels... set em up next to the truck to get an idea of what they will look like and how stuffed they will be. They have 3.75" backspacing, and their actual width is 11.5 inches even tho they are 33x12.5's. So, I'm hoping I can run them w/o any rubbing... I think I should be fine with just a t-bar crank.
