Show your 33s with 18s

Apologies if this has been posted somewhere before. I just did a quick search but to no avail. I'm kind of beat up between 33s with 18s, and 33s with 17s.
Luckily I found a thread about the latter.

Also, any opinions on 33s without a lift? Is the tire going to rub in extremes? (It looks pretty close)

Here's a couple of mine before and after. 285/65/18s with a 2" lift.

I ran them without the lift for a couple months and they do rub at full steering lock. No rubbing with the lift, but I do not have enough room for tire chains on the back.

Here's some of mine. I have a Teraflex leveling kit, 275/70/18 Duratracs, and 1.5" SpiderTrax spacers.

Thanks. It's the AEV tubeless bumper, which is the one they use on the Call of Duty MW3 and Moab editions. I got it because I like the styling and it's one of the few bumpers that looks good without a winch.

Man, the prior 18' design is SOOO much better. I'll have to ask my dealer to switch my crappy 2013 rims out with something older : P

I actually prefer the 2013 rims, especially after putting bigger tires on, they look much better.

JWil,


Love the bumper! (And the green)

I have same setup with leveling, wheel and tire setup. Duratrac is awesome so far (5k in so far.)

May need a new bumper now, thanks. Looks great!

Thanks! I had bonus money from work burning a hole in pocket, so I got that, and the rear AEV without carrier too.
