Put some 33s on...

Bought them yesterday and installed them today. Won a bet with the manager at the place I got them put on. He said they wouldn't fit. No spacers and just a mild t-bar crank. Only slight rubbing. Once I get back from Iraq I'm going to lift it.

Ha. That sounds like fun. If only I had t-bars to alleviate my rubbing....

Looks awesome. I have the exact same two tone color and model as you, and same rims, and I've always wondered what those rims would look like with mud tires.

Thanks everyone.

The bet was for a free balancing.

They're 305/70r16. Technically 32.8... but 33 sounds better.

So if they rub, at what point do they "not fit"?
I could bolt up 38's easily to my F150 but they'll rub. (ie don't fit)

They make your truck looks so much better than stock, I wish i would've got bigger than 265x75x16 When I bought my Mud terrains.

Yeah, they're the stock 16" that comes on the FX4.

They only slightly rub when i turn the tires all the way to the right/left. Not just going down the road. Just like all the other rangers on here that have 33s without wheel spacers.
