    as far as i know, spidertrax common size is 1.25". u can do front only, but then the rear would look weird. most do all 4 purely for looks

    This is what I did. It looks nice. I don't have 33's, but the 31's look nice.


    My next set of tires will be 33's. :D

    here is my 2 pennies.
    1. why go for 33s on 20" rims that really doesnt help you out if your need to air down for sidewall flex do to the fact that you wont have that much flex.
    2. if you dont have the rims at the moment which im guessing you dont. buy rims that are like 20x8 with the least amount of backspacing you can.
    3. your in a PreRunner so why are going to get MTs

    I have a Prerunner and have BFG MT's. It depends on what you do. I have kept up with jeeps and 4x4's using my locker. It has to do with driver skill as well. Plus its more grip.

    Who cares if he has a PreRunner and wants M/T's? I'm getting M/T's for my next tire because they are great tires off road and they look bad ass. :cool:

    i have 305/70/16 (33/12/16)Spidertrax 1.25". get nothing but Spidertrax when it comes to spacers. it just gives you that "warm and fuzzy" that things will be ok.i used the rockcrawler rims off wheelersoffroad.com they have the correct backspacing you would need(type B). i used the spacer for added insurance that there wouldnt be a problem because craigtrd is not using them and has no problems but he is using a 10.50 width tire. get all 4 if youre gonna get them it will look wierd and "off" if you dont. crawler rims probably arent for you but i lightly sanded mine a bit and rustoleum hammered blacked them. pics are in my album.

    33X12.5 with spacers on is going to require some major trimming. Rubbing UCA can be fixed with the right backspacing on the wheels, but I'd imagine you'll hit the Cab Mount and both fenders when you turn.
