Tires and wheels

I know this has been covered some ware, but the quick and nasty, will 33-12.5-15 mud tires fit on the stock rims and will they fit with out rubbing on stock suspension?

Re: Tires and wheels

Yes, I was able to get 33x12.5r15's under stock suspension. Just mount the front tire and check the clearance of the fender wells. If you hit a big bump while turning, you might get a touch of rub, but each truck is a little different.

Most tire shops will mount one to be sure it will clear the front area, before mounting the remaining 3.

Re: Tires and wheels

Test fitting is the only way to know for sure. 33/12.5/15s rub on my fenders. I went ahead and got them based on the general online consensus that they fit... Now I'm looking for a small lift.
