Joe Dirt 8" rims work fine on 33's if you have 3.75 to 4" backspacing. Stock rims don't have that and will rub.

18thcenturyguy AGHHHH!! I can't take it anymore. I have no more $$$ and already ordered the 32" I guess they will have to do. Hope they look good with the 4" lift.

KBR97 yeah there would be no problem with tires being compatible with the rims. But like 4point said you wil have a tire rubbing issue. Sorry I didnt add that.

4point If you install 33" 12.50 tires on your stock rims they will rub the frame and/or CA's. You need a rim with less offset or spacers. The 8" wide rim is perfect for the 12.50 width, a 10" rim would be too wide.

18thcenturyguy Damn it, I want the 33" s , It's my $$$, I'm gonna call him. I even saw a few pics in another post with a guy's Jeep with 33" on the same rims I have.

KBR97 thats bull, I know someone who ran 33's on 8 in. rims aired down to 10 psi when wheeling. Never broke bead.

You could even get away with 35's on an 8in rim.

33" x 12.5 or 32" x 11.5 on Stock Rims?

I have 15x8" Ravines and I wanted to put 33" x 12.5 on, but the guy who is putting on my lift says I should use 32" x 11.5 for safety. He said 8" rims are not really good for anything more than 32" x 11.5. Any Thoughts?
