    Can I run a 33x12.5 on my stock 15's? The guys at my tire shop seemed to think it would be fine with my 3in lift, but Ive been reading up and I have heard both sides that it will work fine jsut rub a little on the wells, or that it wont and it wil rub my stock UCA or will be dangerous and have to be run at a lower psi. Im really hoping not because I am getting a good deal on them and the lift goes on Thursday.

    I think you will need spacers if you are going on stock. I did for my stock 16" rims.

    You will rub on you UCAs unless you go with 33x10.5s

    Not sure a spacer is the way to go in this case. A stock rim is 6", 7" wide at best. Way too narrow for 12.5" wide tires. I think most manufacturers recomend a 9" minimum.

    You can run 12.5" wide tires on 8" wheels no problem. Did that for several years on my old Cruiser.

    I think it will rub at least some without spacers. I have 32x11.5 on OEM alloys with a 2.5" lift and they barely rub with the wheel all the way turned, but any wider tires would def rub.

    I ran 33x12.5's on my jeep with 15x8 rims for years. Perfect size combination.

    I ran with 32X11.50's on stock 7" wide rims for years (on my 96 tacoma) - but I had to run with the air pressure about 5lbs less than normal to ensure the tread would wear evenly. If you don't, you'll wear out the center of the tread.

    If you run 12.50" tire on 7" wide rims - I can honestly say, it'll be UNSAFE. You'll have to lower the air pressure even further to get proper tread wear. I'm really really surprised a shop would even mount that size tire on that size rim.

    If you are deadset on the 33x12.5's then you might want to try rims from an old GM 4x4 87 or older, that should solve your offset problems and lots of those rims were 8" wide, just keep an eye out or go to your local recycle center.

    31x10.5 is about your best bet then with stock wheels, maybe a 32x11.5

    I know my factory 15" wheels with my 31x10.5 bulge out quite a bit (looks good IMO) can't imagine a 12.5" wide tire on them though.
