    Wanting to upgrade to 33's this summer, but i cant decide on 12.50's or 10.50's. I'm worried the 12's will scrub and or stick out to far, was wondering if could post pics of both to give an idea, and what kind of lift you have.

    33s will rub and will typically stick out. What rims will you be running? For 12.50s a 10" wide rim is advised. With the wider rim you will have more offset causing your wheels to stick out more. With 33s expect your mileage to drop 3-4+ mpg.

    What terrain will you be using them on? 12.50s are typically better on sand and mud while the 10.50s are typically better in other areas.

    I am running 33x12.50 BFG Ats with 10" wide rims. I am still triming as I adjust my suspension. When this picture was taken I had 5100s all around. Front set on top notch with stock coils. Rear Dakar 7 leaf pack.
