Wheels and tires on stock rubi suspension.

Alright guys I'm new to the off-road scene I'm wanting to go with new wheels and tires first before the lift. I want to go with a 33"x12.5 tire. If I get a -44 offset on the wheel will that still run or does the offset clear everything or will it rub?

Not sure. Too lazy to do the math. If you want a 33" tire no rub on a stock suspension, go with a 295/70r17. You can run it on 5.2" BS with no issues. It will have minimum effect on scrub radius and will stress your Cs and hub assembly less than a wider stance. The wheel wheels will perfectly tuck themselves into your fender flares. Check my build thread for pictures of my setup.

My Cooper 295s measured 33 and an eight " tall.

Thank you for your help. Really appreciate it. I've been looking around I may just do a 2.5" lift for now just trying to figure out what kit would be best for a good ride. No crazy off-roading just a little trail and mud here and there. So looking to keep the best on road ride as possible.

I'm running 35's with -25 offset wheels on stock sport suspension with no rub but I am also running xrc fenders instead of the factory fenders.
