Hmm, maybe I will have to rethink my lift. I would rather spend a few extra dollars and have my vehicle handle property.

What size wheels would fit/look best on Pro Comp XTerrain 33 / 12.5 R15 's? I like the procomp series 8089.

i would go 15x8. the 10" wide wheel will look wider but you'll lose the bead a lot easier when you air down offroad. plus you can get mud in there if you do mud. as for which wheel...its just your preference...i like the ones that look like the mickey thompsons...not sure which series it is.

Well I'd say that you all probably will never have a bead problem running 10" rims if you want to. I run 10" rims on my 35's and I air down between 6 to 9 pounds when I wheel and have only lost one bead that I had to reset. Not saying that it can't and won't happen, but I will say the likelihood of it happening to you is slim to none.

i guess its cause u do rocks...dude on another board says he wishes he'd went with 8" wide wheels cause he always gets mud in his bead when he airs down...he didn't saying anything about losing a bead so i guess i shouldn't have said that part

I guess I am going to go with a 2.5" budget boost lift. Can anyone recommend which company to go with?

didn't know they make spacers that big. the biggest spacer i know of is the 2.25" spacer from rocky road. i would get that along with bumpstops and OME shocks to keep a great ride...and your gonna need a 1" BL for 33's.

Thanks for the help!

"the biggest spacer i know of is the 2.25" spacer from rocky road. i would get that along with bumpstops and OME shocks to keep a great ride...and your gonna need a 1" BL for 33's."

I have been searching and found a pic of a Superlift superride 4" lift kit. I thought a 4" lift would look too high on 33's but this one looks good. http://www.quadratec.com/stages/stage2.php

Which one of the above options would give me the highest quality ride?

Thanks for your patience with my lack of knowledge.

4" is perfect for 33's. best ride would probably be the OME 2.5" with 1" body lift.

Talking Lift

Just lifted my rig 4" and put 33X12.50 Looks and feels 100% better and it drives great. Make sure you don't disregard the little things like a bigger steering dampner and a heavier duty steering rod.
