What are the specs on your wheels? Offset, backspacing....

Annnnnddd this is the 35,456,959,235th thread with this exact question. OP, I had to cut some plastic, and use a BFH to smash down the pinch weld so I wouldn't rub.

That's 3.75" backspacing, so at least you won't be hitting the control arms or anything. I'd imagine you will need a moderate amount of trimming, as noted above.

Well now that question A is answered how is the gearing on 33s i'm assuming that with a 4.10 will work out fine with a v6?
