    I got an awesome deal on some toyo mt 33 12.5 18 on craigslist and i'm currently running a 3 inch rough country lift and was wondering if anybody has been running this set up and what kind of wheels they have? Seems to me the best bet would be the moto metal 951's since they offer the best offset and backspace ! Anything would help guys! Thanks!:confused::confused::confused:

    i know that there are a few people who are running a 295/70/17 with 3" of lift. thats a 33x11.6. so there maybe a possibility, but theres probably alot of trimming thats involved.

    Thats kinda what i was thinking 12.5 is pretty wide i was just hoping with the right wheels i might be able to pull off but that's ok cause i want a 6 inch lift anyways :)

    Also i kinda of feel like a Jack A$$ now since i started searching past threads but nobody actually said if they tried to stick some 12.5's on a 3 inch lift they all did 285's

    search for guys running 305's (either 305/70/16 or 305/65/17 = 33x12.0). They should fit fine though IMO, but hey I guess thats coming from a guy that didnt mind doing work and going to 35's so I might not care about trimming as much as you do. :cool:

    Real tires are never what the calculator says they should be by the markings. Look at Nitto Trail Grpplers and Toyo MTs in that size.

    im running 285's on currently about 1 inch of lift. i have no rub even at full flex and full lock, but i did a good bit of trimming so its doable but a 6 inch lift if your not going to go offroad looks good, offroad not so much.
