I have a '98 reg cab 2.7L and installed a 2.5" front (spacers... I know, get some new coil overs etc.... waiting until after I get new bumpers for it), 2" rear lift (all shackle right now, so I might put an AAL in there for a little more) and I'm currently running 31x10.5x15 Firestone AT tires on the stock wheels.
Now that the lift is in place I was looking for tires. The recommended size was a 32 inch tire, but since the only 32" tires out there are also 11.5" wide, the tire would all around be a half inch wider than the 31s on it right now.
Would I get less rubbing/trimming with the BFGoodrich 32x11.5x15s vs a 33x10.5x15s?
I understand that unless I change bump stops etc that when I stuff the tires I will need to do some trimming, pinch weld mod, etc, and I'm down with that, but I want to make sure I don't have tires that are waaaay too big.
I'm leaning towards the 33s right now, because I feel the 32s might need spacers. I would be down for the 33x9.5s too... but I can't find anywhere really to buy them at the moment. I'm not afraid of the pizza cutter wheels.
So.... with trimming would the 33s be a better bet than the 32s?
