New 33x10.5 KM2 Pizza cutters

I tried some 33x12.50 no names on a 10" wide wheel with 3.75 backspace from my buddys jeep. I did not like the way they looked. Minimal front valance rub as well.

No lift and a T-bar crank. I have four 1.25" spacers just in case I want them set wider.
What do you think?

Here is a 235/75/15 pic for reference.

Umm I would say it's fine how it is. Spacers might make it look better but it's still very nice right now

Personally, I wouldn't bother with the spacers but a set of rear AAL's or shackles, and a t-bar lift might help more. I'm running about 1.5" crank with airbags in the back of mine pushing about 2" @ 30 psi with 33x10.5 BFG ATs and they work perfectly. Mine do rub a touch on the left side... mostly due to a minor discrepancy with a rock and the fender that consequently landed on it, causing the inner fender to get pushed around a bit. oops. LR

Looks good. Based on those two photos, I have a feeling that when I have my 215/75-15 KM2's installed next week they're going to look mighty gay with their 27.9" overall diameter.

The pizza cutters look good. Honestly I have always been a fan of that size on stock/near stock Rangers.
Running spacers will probably just cause you grief for a few different reasons. Wheel bearings and front end parts aside, the tires will most likely rub the fenders when you are turning (up front) and the rears will rub if you stuff a tire in the fender.

My truck has the 2" block in the rear from the factory and I have 9 turns on the good 'ole T-Bar crank. The front was LOW!

Wow that is kinda small but the 08s ride a bit lower dont they? I dont think the 32.8s would work.

Yeah they fit great on my stock susp with no BL.
You think I would have those (front end) problems?
The 33x12.5s on 10" wide wheels rubbed just a bit on drivers side valance with 3.75" BS. That stuck out about 6.25 from the hub.
The spacers are 1.25" and these wheels are 4.5" BS I think. Together thats 3.25" BS on a 7" wheel. They should stick out 3.75" from the hub. Or maybe my minds eye is totally off on my measurement and math. Maybe i should write it down.
As far as stuffing a rear tire, I doubt it will ever happen. Unless i roll over one side of a really tall speed bump in the mall parking lot

Thanks again guys. I went this route to keep costs down. Sold my 22s to pay for the KM2s.
I did not do a BL because then i could fit wider tires.
If i could fit wider tires, then I would need new wheels.
If I got the BL with new wheels, why not go with 35s.
And on and on and on from there.
