    Costco has a pretty good price for these tires installed
    $175/tire
    $14 install (super cheap)

    But theres one problem...

    I called and they said that they would only do the install if there is clearance around the tire and fender. If not they would not let me leave with the tires on.

    I have eibach's in the front giving about 3", and close to 4" in the back.
    How much clearance will I have with the 33/10.5 tires?

    what kind of wheels you got?

    pretty sure you have enough lift just the wheel backspacing is the only thing i can think of that would make you run into a problem

    (3.5" came from Solid axel 4runners)

    Ill check the rims when i get home to make sure.

    nevermind on this...
    Costco only installs costco bought tires.

    Also Sears does installs for $16.99 and they dont have any problems if the tires rub a little. (costco wouldnt install if they rub)

    Not entirely true...you just have to talk to the guys in the shop.
    I showed up with 4 loose wheels and tires for my toy hauler and $40 and bullshitted with one of the guys in the shop for a bit. Came back an hour later and it was done. :cool:

    Also, doublecheck that price on Sears. I'm pretty sure it's $16.99 for mount/balance IF YOU BUY THE TIRES FROM THEM.

    Costco won't install tires on a vehicle if the tires aren't factory size.

    It's a liability issue. They will mount/balance though.

    At least this is the way it is in Canada. Been there, done that.

    yeah that was my dilema. The place around here said that they would only do it is there was clearance, if not they would take them off and either refund my money, or send me some with the tires.

    Any way you could just bring them the rims? Not sure if you have another truck or if you could borrow a buddy's for a little bit. They'll never know if they rub or not.

    I kinda solved my problem, by switching to having Sears install.

    okay.
    Just in case anyone else searches this and wants to know the outcome, the 33/10.5's were put on by sears and didnt rub at all. Full turn both ways, front suspension if bilstein 5100's and eibachs.
