I have a 1992 4x4 that is at stock height that currently has 32"x10.5" BFG M/Ts on 15" stock rims (came this way when I bought it). The rims are in bad shape and I was thinking about getting some new rims/tires. Other than some rubbing on the control arm when nearing the steering lock points the current tires don't catch on the wheel arches or anything. I was thinking about getting 15x7 rims (offset of -6mm and 3.7" backspacing) with 33x10.5 BFG A/Ts. Any reason that this wouldn't work? Would there be any advantage to going with 15x8 rims? I was also planning to get some spacers to reduce the rubbing on the control arms.
Any thoughts or suggestions? Anyone have a similar set-up and some pics?
It looks about the same as mine did when i got mine you should be able to clear 33s as long as you leave the front up with 2 inch pucks they are fairly cheap on ebay i think i gave less than $100 for mine. Here is a pic of mine before i leveled mine and one before i put the 33s on
I ran 33x10.50 BFG AT's on stock suspension for a couple months before I put a leveling kit on. They rubbed a little on the radius arm at full lock but I wasn't too bad. Honestly though, the leveling kit was the best $50 I've ever spent on the truck. Changes the look completely.
Did any of your guys have any drivability issues after going to the 33s? I have 32s now so I don't imagine that there will be much different. My truck is an I6 so its not the most powerful beast out there. I just don't want to put some nice wheels/tires on it and have it drive like $hit. At this point its basically on the road 95% of the time, so off-roading isn't really a concern.
