    I've looked everywhere and I haven't found an answer. Has anybody put 33 inch tires on a 5 lug with a fat bobs 2.75 lift. The only thing I've seen people using is 31, which is what fat bobs recommends. I'm just curious if you could run a 33. And I am aware that it'll rub
    Thanks

    I would think putting 33s on a 5 lug with that lift is like putting 35s on a 4x4 with a lift. It will do more than just rub. You will hardly be able to turn. And heaven forbid you actually stuff tire

    Also depends on how wide. No way you can fit a 33x12.5. 4x4s rub with 3" and 33s. And you are at least 3" lower at least

    I test fitted 285s when selecting tires and they will clear. Black box removed and if stock bumper it will have to b trimmed as well.

    Just curious, I thought because of the way the fenders are, 31's can fully articulate through them regardless if you are a 4x4 or not. Correct me if I'm wrong...

    not sure what you mean by this. 4x or not, the 6 lug suspension is the same, and of course a 31 will be fine as its stock


    both of you guys have 6 lug suspension. totally different

    There was a 5 lug on here with 32's that had to do a lot of trimming. I'm sure you could 33's under there if you really wanted to, but the one thing I do know if that you would need to regear immediately. I've got 31's and thought I'd be fine with stock gears, and I was wrong. It was totally killing my mpg and 5th gear was completely irrelevant. 33's would be a joke with stock gearing.

    Neslerrah is running 33 with a readylift which is the same as fat bobs. Prerunner style front bumper and he was ok. Also on stock gears. I'm sure he lost 5th gear as well. I'm on 265s and stock gears and don't really see a need for the regear. But I'm an automatic.

    Maybe it's just because I've got the stick shift, but it was really getting to me. Really had to wear out first gear to get anywhere around the hills around my apartment. Plus I think the stock gears for stick are 3.38 and auto is a little better like 3.58 or something like that?

    I'm not really dead set on running 33s I just wanted to get a little more lift. I plan on making a prerunner front bumper anyway so I'll probably end up with a 32. I'm also planning on getting a cold air intake and aftermarket headers. Do you still think I would need to regear?

    I ended up running p rated 265s on an alloy wheel to save weight. I had plans to regear with ecgs and really didn't see the need to. It still does what I need it to do. If I went to a larger lt tire I would regear most likely. But it all depends on how the truck handled the tires. But for what I do what I have is just fine.

    I would get the tires first and see what you think. I got a good deal on a complete 4.10 3rd from another TW guy so i pulled the trigger. Bolted it up with a friend in about 3 hrs, but it's not like the truck wont work with the stock gears.

    I will tell you right now,33's will work, and they have been done. Im running 32's and have enough gap for 33's. I have no rubbing whatsoever with room for more. Matter of fact, I will be running 33's next tire set. You will have to do some chopping on the plastic fender well covers and black box mod, that is all.

    Gears:

    For the life of god, manual stock gears are terrible with 32's. I was shifting from 4th to 5th about a thousand times freeway driving. Under 60, there is no 5th gear. I had a rear end built by east coast gear supply with 4.30s.. perfect combo in my opinion. I have some geddy up now (as much as there can be with the camel speed 2.7l) and my gas mileage has leveled. I run on avg, 18mpg city, 21mpg freeway.


    BTW: Heres my thread where I documented much of my heartbreaks and ups and downs. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/5-lug/250374-de-estrogenizing-5lug.html

    I hope that it may help you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM me. Either way man, lift it and get rid of the grandma styling of the 5lugger! I couldn't be happier with my taco now!

    Im running 31's on a fat bob lift and 4.56's. im planning on moving up to 33's when these wear out and was going to do a 2" body to make sure I have good clearance. I think it will be sufficient

    The same 7" rim with 10.50" tires. The same as now other than height.
