difference in 285/75/16 and 33x12.5?

i tried the calculator with no luck - it only does metric.
i wondered how much bigger the 33 was and if it was possible with trimming and boxing the bodymount to run a 33 with the toytec c/o at 3" (or 3.25").
I am getting ready to byu new wheels and tires and trying to find the "right size". also what does a 305 translate into? 33?
thanks

You will have more rubbing with the 33-12.5-15. I personally don't care to hear my tires scrub up on the frame. Even with 285-75-17 I still had to trim to keep from rubbing and my kit is set a little over 3 inches.

hey jrobson;
Your truck looks awesome! I have a 07 double cab 4x4 and am thinking of buying the Moto metal 955's for my truck too. I read somewhere that the Moto metal wheels rub the brake caliper and I may have to grind the caliper a bit. Did you run into that problem with your wheels? Want to be sure the wheels fit ok before I go ahead and buy them. Thanks for any info!

I don't know who told you that. I got 17x9's with 4.5 inch backspacing and they fit with absolutely no problem what so ever. The statement you got from that other person is TOTALLY false. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks! That eliminates one question. Just gotta go ahead and order them. Think I'm going to go with the chrome 955's and BFG All Terrains 285/70/17 tires.
