I have a 1998 Taco with 2.5 inch Cornfed Coil Spacers and 2 inch PA Body lift. Right now I am running 33 x 12.50 Thornbirds on 15x10 wheels. Im getting ready to sell these tires and I like the way my truck looks with 33's Im just not sure if I want to get 32's or 33's next.

They dont rub too bad, we all know how frikkin wide Thornbirds are. I trimmed my front bumper a little bit where it was hitting. I am Thinking about getting 33x12.50 Dunlop Mud Rovers

get 33x12.50s with an 8" rim and it should help with the rubbing. with 4.5" of lift it will look funny on 32's

i'm thinking about either getting dunlop or the trxus...can't really decide...
dunlop has great price...but doesn't perform as well as trxus...trxus performs great...but they are a little more than dunlop...
oh well...i still got time...since i have no money...haha

No. Most people here have that combo.

You'll be fine with a 12.50 on an 8" rim.

Yea I learned do deal with the rubbing just like i did the noise coming from my Thornbirds. The next set of tires im gonna buy wont be as bad as the T-birds. Im pretty sure im going to get 33 x 12.50 Mud Rovers. Thanks Everyone who voiced there opinions, u've been a big help! :D :D :D

well i bought them used, and they had about 20,000 on them, still had about half the amount of tread, i could prolly get another 20,000 out of the 2 better ones, there are two that are worn on the inside bad b/c of bad alignments on my friends truck.

Does anyone know if anyone makes a 33 x 11.50 tire or metric equivalent? 33 x 12.50 is going to be too wide I think.

I know that the Mud rovers cant be any worse than your T-birds. But I have around 20K miles on mine and they started off with a shake around 55MPH-60MPH when I fisrt had them. Now I have a real bad shake from about 25MPH and up....and everyone else that I know who runs them on Toyota's cant get the shake to go away. Also they are a fairly heavy tire, and they do wear good, but not even, if you can understand that? lol So if I was you maybe look at some BFG's. Those wear alot better than most MT's.

I have the Mud rovers, and they have not lasted. 10k miles and they are about half gone. They are really noisy too.

Next tire is the Cooper Discoverer SST's.

Yea mine have only lasted this long because I rotated and balanced my tires every time I have my oil changed(every 3000k miles). But they do shake horrible, and are unevenly wearing each lug.
