    Post pics of your 33x12.50r15 duratracs mounted on a 15x8 rim. Im getting a set of these put on tomorrow and want to see how they will look. Got them for $700 at a local tire shop. I think thats pretty cheap. Priced a set of bfg km2 33x12.50 and they were over $900.:eek:

    Guess it depends on how you drive?
    Do you mall crawl or wheel?

    Look at JLee's build for ideas of what you'll have to cut if you actually wheel your truck.

    The pinchweld is the problem area with that wide of a tire and that small of a backspacing. Hell I rubbed like hell on the pinchweld with a 33x11 and only a 4" BS, but I drive my truck pretty hard.

    Im going to use the angle grider to get rid of the pinch weld and use a file for the bottom of the front bumper.

    You'll need more than a grinder. This is the best pic I could find. After I grinded off everything that was in the way, I beat the shit out of the pinchweld with a 5 lb sledge. Litterally folded the sheetmetal back an inch....and that was just to clear 11" wide tires. Hell full compression/lock I still rub sometimes.
