Those are the same rims I have so hopefully the 32x11.5 tires will fit the same minus the 1/4 of clearance

jrussblues ...you may be able to pull off 32 11.50's though. It would prob look cool too.
04-02-2012 06:50 PM
jrussblues I would love nothing more than to tell you it will work, but it won't, at least not sustainably. I rubbed at 3" of combined lift, 4" and now I sit between 4.5 and 5...still rub. Granted I'm under pretty good flex but 1" + 33's = something broken. Your best bet would be to modify your fenders. If you squeeze 33's on there as is you'll be modifying them whether you like it or not if you leave the pavement.

blkrubi88 I agree with everyone else, just not enough lift for 33's.

I have a 4" lift and 33's, with about 7" of space between the top of my tires and the flares and they rub real bad at full flex, I'm amazed I haven't ripped one off yet.

My parents have me in a catch 22 they won't let me buy it because I'm paying for college right now but won't let me mod it mechanically until I buy it -_-

Then don't mention the term "lift"....simply call them "spacers".

You should be fine as far as width goes, I would just be afraid of ripping off a fender over a speed bump because of the height.

I-Want-A-Jeep Gonna have a tough time with only 1.25bl unless you have some fender modifications which is probably not the case if you want 6" flares.

Generally, for on-road use only you'll need at least 2" of lift. for on/off road, 4" is desirable.

04-02-2012 03:26 PM
friskeljr not sure 33s would fit with just a BL

33x12.5x15

Does anyone have pictures of a TJ with 33x12.5x15 tires with only a 1.25 bl and 6 inch flares. I want new tires but I want an idea of how they are going to look first.
