BF Goodrich KM2 33x10.50's

WTF?
So then they don't really "clear" do they, if they rub stuff so much that your turning radius sucks?

The ranger turning radius already sucks, the last thing I would want to do is make it worse. I know on a lot of trails I went on I was having to make 5 point turns to get around some stuff.

Cooky your truck sits lower than from the factory anyways. I still have a long time between now and the time i buy tires so i am still thinking of all my options. Most likely what i will end up doing is just a trial and error kind of thing. Try 33's with just maxxed bars and shackles and if i have any rubbing issues ill do the 1" BL. But ill never do a 3" BL though. I think i should be able to clear 33's pretty well though. Thesoundmaster's runnin 33's and all he has done is cranked his T-bars. I think thats all he's done. He can chime if im wrong on that though.

I just got them about a month ago. so about 1000. but i worked at discount tire and i would say you would get anywhere from 30 to 40 k depending on how you drive.

I hate how Mud terrains are way more exspensive than AT's And last half as long. I guess there worth it in the mud though.

i meant to say that yours sits lower from the factory than mine does. the 07's (i thought) sat lower than 02's. i could be wrong. it could be the 08's that sit lower.

the only time they rub is when i turn "LOCK TO LOCK"..... and its still not that bad. they only hit the back corner of the inside fender...

when i go offroad they clear jus fine. no bottoming out...

as far as the trail thing.... you can still turn lock to lock without hurting the tire. i do it all the time and no damage to the truck or the tires as far as my tire tread depth gauge says.

Go 285/75/16. You dont want a 33 stock. The height isn't what gets you. It's the width. On my old wheels I rubbed up front and out back on full flex. I haven't tried with the new wheels yet, but if you dont wana BL. Stick to a 32. They look perfect on non lifted trucks. 33's will look to stuffed.
