Just purchased a 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 with BDS 6 inch lift and 35 inch Mickey Thompsons. I was wondering what the truck would look like with 33's or do you you think they would be too small? Any pics would help. Thanks.

No they'd look fine. If you off-road the truck, 33's will give you more flex room plus your MPG's should go up depending on what gears on in the truck.

Should I post my favorite gear/rpm chart? :thumbs:

Edit: Couldn't help myself... http://www.4wheelpar...gear_ratio.html

There's some info about gearing for different tire sizes, which ultimately influences gas mileage.

it might because one of my best friends has a 01 GMC sierra with a 3" boby lift and before he had mud tires he had bigger tires it looked alright i guess with 265s but you have 6" and want 33s, i think it will look ok but i recommend just running 35s or more

33's will look somewhat ok but usually makes the tires look to small for the truck. If it's got 35's on it why go down? if they are worn out and your looking to replace them I'd stick with the 35's personally

I agree... I had 35s on my old truck and was curious what the 33s looked like as it would make it a bit more economical right?
