quick tire question...

would 33x12.5x17 tires fit on my stock sport rims? i know the rims are the right size,, but is the tire too wide?

I slapped 285's on stock rims. I had a 3" leveling kit also. The angle that gave me allowed the lca to grab and throw wheel weights. Wrong offset. This is what you should look at is offset.

Or, buy new wheels with the correct offset for the larger tire size.
Spacers? Why would you ever put wheel spacers on a car....that moves? BAD IDEA! Forget spacers exist.

I have used them (were only talking about Spidertrax here) and many others have used them with no problems. The problems come from people who do not mount them correctly.

Edit: Other problems come from people going to Auto Zone or like stores and trusting that they are getting something made for their vehicle when in reality that wheel spacer is universal. The spidertrax spacer is a vehicle specific spacer.

The option would be 200 for a good set of spacers if you want to keep your stock wheels and run larger tires, or about $650+ for a set of aftermarket wheels with the correct backspacing (8" wide wheel with 4.5" backspacing).
