33x10.5's are almost impossible to find. I think only two Mfgrs. make them, and one is on national backorder for months.....

There's a member here by the name IslandTJ, he runs 33x10.50x15s I think he has a 3"BDS lift kit on his.

If you went with a 16" wheel you might have better luck finding tires, look for 255/85R16, the Maxxis Bighorn tires come in that size it equals out to 33.3x10.30x16. they have very good reviews, and some people on here run them too. Offroaders.com has very good tire reviews and other good info too. you should be able to find them locally at a good price.

I was looking at those, im trying to not have to get 16s but i will if i have to. I know the BFGoodrich radial t/a KO came in a 33x10.50x15. im not sure if they still make them or not...?

Actually I think that is what IslandTJ has on his. BFG T/A KO's. I have the same tire in a 30x9.5x15 It's ok but I think it could be better. I'm gonna go with a 32" tire, depends on how much the Tax Man brings on my return. Either the 32x11.50x15, or if I get what I'm expecting I'll get 16" wheels and 265/75R16 tires comes out to 31.7 to 32 x10.50x16 depending on tire manufacture. I'm looking at the GoodYear Duratrac, or the Maxxis Bighorn. I also like the BFG KM2, the reviews are good but not as good as the duratracs or the bighorns, but everyone one that I've spoken to that has them on their trucks/jeeps love the KM2s. Personally I think the KM2s look better than duratracs.

im runnin the BFG KO now also... there not bad i have no complaints other than they pull really hard in deep puddles on the road. i will be putting a 4inch lift on my jeep soon and want 33s but want to keep my tires tucked in the best i can, alot of the trails i go on are pretty narrow in spots so im trying to stay as narrow as possible. from what ive seen i like the 33x10.50 alot better than 12.50s.

I run 33x10.5-15 KM2's on my TJ. Not quite 4" of lift, 2.5 OME and 1.25 JKS. They work great both on and off road. No complaints.

Those KM2s Look great on your rig! How do they do in heavy rain on pavement? that's my only real gripe about the T/A KOs, and on my grass drive-way when it's wet they slide too.

Thanks, I love the looks myself, and the KM2's do just fine in the wet. I've only had the rear break free once in the wet, and I think it was oil, not water. Last year was a very wet year for us too.

That's good to hear, If I don't get the 16x8 wheels and 265/75R16 tires, (Depends on the Tax Man). I may go with the 33x10.5x15 on my Gamblers.

they are harder to find I've heard... Im running 33x12.5x15 on a 4" RC. I like the wider ones, great for throwing mud all over the place. Keep in mind though, my Summit Racing rims have a -19mm offset to kick them out just a little more than normal. I wanted the wider stance with going 4" higher.

Bfg a/t 33-10.5-15

They only measure 31.5 though which is a disappointment.Im planning on getting some duratracs 33-12.5-15 and those measure 32.8 which should be alot better

I have the same lift and considered keeping my canyon wheels and running tires like yours. Now I see it would have looked great! Very nice.
