Alright I am lookin for a little help on this I am a newbie. I want to put a lift on and I am thinking bout goin with a 3.5 from fabtech but i am also tryin to fit 33s are these gonna fit? I am also thinkin maybe 32s would be okay as well. I also want to go with a 17'' or possibly an 18'' wheel. Like a 17x9 or an 18x9. I don't want my truck to look gay so the more rubber the better so an 18'' might look good with a 33 or a 17'' might look good with a 32 etc. Anybody got any advise for me let me know thanks Dave

Why do you want such a big rim?

if you wheel at all go with a 15 or 16 wheel, the first time you kiss a rock with your 18s you'll kick yourself in the ass!! I have 33s with 3" of lift and only rub at FULL flex...

Put the Tire on a 15 or 16 inch rim, it makes the tire look bigger and it will make the truck look a lot better. I havent really used my truck off road that much and i run 33 x 12.50's on 15x10's, check it out

Aight man it all depends on the backspacing of the rim and the width of the tire. 33x12.50's on 18x9"s are going to hit. The only way your going to get away with running that tall of a tire is to go with a rim that has backspacing like the stock rim has and then your 12.50" wide tire will probladly hit the upper arm. Go for alil skinnier tire and I think you will be ok.

so what kind of backspacing are we talkin bout here. I want a tire that sticks out a little so i figured that a 17x9 or an 18x9 would have a pretty good size dish in turn makin it more offset am i right? What would be an offset that would work without hitting any of the suspension? Or the correct backspacing size?

I have 3" CF lift, running 33 12.5 (305 70/16's). Rubbed like crazy, then I added a 2" RB body lift, rubbing ceased, except for really hard bouncing while at full turn off road. I run 16X8 MT Classic II's with 3 3/4" back spacing.

Why not run 20's on it??? It's a street queen, so go the pavement posuer route. It will go round a corner well. Try custom taco's, and do a search for trucks that don't touch dirt. Or, 4x4 builder mag. HAH!
