tires and rims

How bad would it be for a month to run 33x12.5x15's on stock rims? I know they will rub at full turn a little. I just can't find rims I like that I can get today from tirerack. I can get the granite alloys but tirerack will not mount them due to being out of manufacters specs BS I know. But that also takes out the free mounting and balancing too. I am stuck HELP I am tho going with the Dick Cepek Crushers tho!!

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

They'll rub in the rear against the upper spring retainer, enough that I wouln't mount them on factory wheels. Less so in the front but when you turn the steering wheel very far, they will rub pretty bad on the control arms.

I'd wait for the Crushers to arrive and just have the tires mounted by a different shop. It's the large chain store tire dealers that are often so anal about what they'll mount new tires onto.

I got the rims and tires from tire rack. I can not tell you how much I paid for them on the open forum could get into a lot of trouble I will pm it to you. If you want them I can get them for you too at my price.

How are your Crushers holding up? Are they any good on the street? I'm researching and trying to decide between General Grabbers and Crushers. Thanks!
