    Hey, need some help can't decide whether i want to get 33x12.5x15 or 33x10.5x15. I will be putting the 5100 bilstiens on my truck with the aal's. Also debating whether i should put the eibach coils on as well. Opinions would be great!!

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    What do you like, 12.5" or 10.5"? The 10.5 will have less rubbing

    I like them both. I have been leaning more towards the 10.5 because of less rubbing but seems like I've seen that many tacos with them unless im blind... But also love how the 12.5's look as well im just stuck on what i want :help:

    I like the 10.5s. Pretty great all around size..small enough to cut through snow..wide enough to get good traction offroad. Plus better mpgs.

    Wheres Monte? He will probably tell you to go 12.5 lol

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    i went with 12.5 because its wider so more traction. but the 10.5s will be less rubbing, will rob less power and MPG.

    Sweet! Thanks man! Massillon sounds familiar, I've probably driven through there at some point.
    Yep, I do still have the stock front bumper. I'd be willing to sell it.
