    Now that i got my lift squared away (2.5" Coilovers) I was told that 33s will be pushing it. I will go with 32s instead. Would the Toyo A/T 32s be a good buy at $850 walk out with install and alignment included on my stock 17s or should i pay more and go with the BGF A/T at about 1K?

    X2 on the Toyo's. Or Nitto Terra Grapplers. BFG's are over rated, and are easily out performed by the previously mentioned tires. :)

    That is a great price on the Toyo's!! I def prefer the look of the Nitto TG and the Toyo AT over the BFG's.

    even with a lift you can't run 33's on a stock rim (5.5" backspace). not sure about the 32's. my 33's barely clear the uca's and i have after market rims (4.5" backspace)

    Ok if I adjust my coilovers to 3" or 3.5" think i can run the 33s? Wont be on stock rims...probably 16". I guess I got no problem doing 3 point turns on sharp turns.

    Making your coilovers that high will put much more stress on your CV's. Most people wouldn't recommend it. With 33's or 285's your really just going to need to trim a bit.
