    Thats on a stock wheel, looks damn good, and no lift.

    So, I'm on my way to pick up a new 15/10 M/T classic II's rim
    to mount on my 33/12.5 tire and see if it fits with little cutting to the
    lower front fender, most won't even notice it :D this is with no lift.

    I will post pic's in a few hours :thumb: here is what it looks like now.

    those are not 33's in the pic.

    HERE IT IS.. The only thing I need to do is trim very little on the rear front
    fender. I like this look better, than putting a lift on it :D. I may have a little
    fender well rub, but if I do , I will modify that to.

    I don't know. I did not ask when I bought it. I cannot find out what brand tire that is as well :mad: , it has no name brand on it. I am going to pick up the other 3 rims friday, If I can't find out what tire I have, I'm going to go with the BFG MUD TERRAIN, If you interested, I will ask what BS is on them friday.

    Are your front springs flat or do they have a negative arch ?

    Do you have any blocks in the back between the spring and the axle ?

    The tire tread pattern looks like a Interco tire maybe..

    1. negative, I think they are worn.
    2. no blocks anywhere
    3. do you know where I can get a link to this tire.

    I am the second owner of the truck. Its all original, not hack up like most
    when you try to buy one. This is factory height, no lift. :D

    I am not sure what my backspacing is but my front springs are negatiive. I have 33 12.5/15 on 8 inch rims and they only rub with full flexed and turning. Those rims look nice. :D
