^^^ you feeling ok he doesn't need a superlift and body to put 33's god man..drugs are bad....

the thiner tire is whats gonna save him and with full crank he should be alright i mean hard wheeling he is gonna rub but street driving its ok depending on the Backspacing of the wheel

????

Heck I had 32"s(measured up around 32.5) on my old fx4 with a full tbar crank that didn't rub. You def don't need a double lift to clear 33's. One or the other would be sufficient. My 5" RCD susp lift clears 33"s w/no problems, I could almost get away with 35"s.

You mean his wheel? lol

Um...and your reasoning is? You think just cuz you bump a rim size up one or two inches it affects the tire's overall diameter? It only affects the diameter of the wheel opening at the center of the tire.

OK i see that tires is not my area of knowledge. Just seems to me that 17's are alot bigger then 16's. I know a guy with 17's on a dodge and his tires are alot bigger then my 16's. But you guys know what your talking about so i will just leave this to you guys.

read his original post read SLOWLY... the TIRE SIZE is 33x11x17 that means... 33" TALL 11" WIDE and on a 17" RIM.... that means compaired to a 16" rim with the measurement 33x11x16 that THIS tire will have 1" LESS side wall of rubber... that is all.....

something between 4.5"-3.75" would be ok anything under or over would be bad...

So they rub or don't? I just can't figure out your post. If they do how much? I think he need to crank up his t-bars like most people have here.
