will 33x12.5x20 fit with leveling kit


Recommended Posts

I have a 2 inch leveling kit and 2 inch rear blocks on my truck i have a shot at a good deal for some 33/12.5x20 toyo mts on moto metal 951s. They were on a 2000 silverado with a 4 inch lift and rubed some when backing up at full lock. Im thinking they wont work for me. Lets hear the knowledge and wisdom from you guys. Ill get new pics up with the 2 inch rear blocks added as soon as the truck gets a bath

thats what i thought damn damn damn ha ha ha ha oh well. What size would you recomend? Someday if i can find a steal of a deal on a 3 in body lift ill put one of those on too. Im currently running the 265/70/17. I would like to step up to an 18 or 20 inch wheel so someday when i can afford the lift the wheel protion ill already have.

You need a 2" leveling kit for 275/60/20 correct? I Can get a pretty good deal on some rims and tires but dont think they will fit without leveling kit, dont really want to do any trimmimg. Also got mudflaps on that are about a 1/4" thick.

 

 

Correct. They won't fit without a leveling kit.

I saw a 2500HD with 35's a while back....and it just had the factory bars cranked. I couldn't see much from a distance...but when I got up close, I could see that the owner had cut a large portion of the metal fender, trimmed a LOT of plastic, and had zip ties pulling the inner fender (what was left of it) away from the tires. From 30 feet, it looked awesome, lol.

I wonder how some guys run 35x12.50 with just a leveling kit, it blows my mind when I see it. I want 35's, but I rub 33's with 5" of lift.

 

 

Where do you see that?

 

I know some guys run 35s, but they are running 3" leveling kits and stock 18" rims

 

Thats what I mean, 2.5 TGC level and 35's on stockers.

And that's an on a HD. The fact is that some guys are willing to hack up their fenders to make things work. And then, because they were told it wouldn't work, will lie their asses off and claim they don't rub.

id love a set of 35s one day but that will be a lift and new gears for that. Thats why i want to stick with 33s although it looks like im going to have to lift to get my 33x12.5 tires anyhow. In the future im going to add a 3in body lift maybe i can clear them if i add the body lift in conjunction with my leveling kit.

I would make some measurements. I get very slight rub left side in reverse at full lock to left turn from tire to plastic shroud. I could trim this but the rub is so minimal that it will disappear with tire wear. I have 285 75 r16s so I gotta think 12.5" tires would rub because my 285's are 11.6" wide. Maybe a bit of more back space in my rims would help... I got stock rims and do not want to jack with rim back spacing and change my bearing loads. Good luck!
