Thanks for the heads up and saving me a major wtf moment! I found a thread about the pinch seam with pics.

I joined TL a few days ago, and this $100 rebate along with the 1% below inv. is a real treat. My Rubi Unl is in transit and should arrive any day now. As soon as it gets here I plan on spending a few hours installing the 2" AEV BB and then heading over to Discount Tire for the new shoes.

InfernoGirl If you're buying new wheels and tires, and you want to end up with 35's you'll be money ahead to go ahead and put a 2.5" lift on it and your 35's and be done, rather than doing tires twice.... You'll want 35's before your 33's wear out, and a 2.5" lift is all that's needed to clear 35's, and they can be picked up for not a whole lot of money... 3.5" is gonna require lots more than just a lift kit.

TJe0454 smart. you will love the duratracs. silent on the road and really good offroad. (just dont play with sharp rocks)

devicemanager Thanks for the input. I'll just sell the oem's w/out tpms and go with a Duratrac 285/70/17

I believe the oem wheel is only 7.5" wide, so will the oem bfg's look "wider" on the wider wheels? I am hoping this will hold me over until I get the 3.5" lift and 35's.
why dont u sell the tires/wheels together and make more money (assuming you were going to sell the wheels.) you would cover a good amount of the cost of new wheels/tires.

InfernoGirl Yes, they will spread out some due to the wider wheel. Be cautious airing down offroad with that set up tho', you don't have a lot of tire width to keep your bead seated. It will fit ok, we did it for our spare for a short time.
