    33\" tires no lift

    Can someone send me a pic or a link for a K5 with 33" tires and no lift. A pic on level ground would be best. cav444@hotmail.com
    Thanks

    Keep in mind that General tires run small. My 35 inch General`s are actually 33`s when I bust out then tape measure. Give or take a few anyway.:-)

    Yeah my 35" General Grabber MT's are 33.75" [​IMG]. Then again my old 33" BFG mud TA's were just barely 31" tall. Are we seeing a trend here? Talk about false advertising!
    Do any of the tire manufacturers actually live up to advertised tire height?

    I think the Buckshot Mudders are actually taller then what they claim them to be. Not too sure though...

    I think tires like super swampers and a couple others are actually the size they say they are. I am sticking with the Generals though. Best tires I ever bought.

    I've been very happy with mine too! 40,000 miles and lots left! They dig hard in the mud and bite pretty good on the rocks as well.
    Now if only they made a 37" Grabber MT [​IMG], of course it would only be 35.5" tall though [​IMG][​IMG]

    How much of an issue is rubbing with 33x12.50's and no lift? Will I have to be careful off road or will they just rub once in a while?

    The Mule has BFG AT 33's. When I got it, it had no lift. Maybe You want to check my website. Have a look on history two and three. As long as she's jellow, she's not lifted.

    I have a non lifted k5 with 33-12,5. They will rub of you go offroad, on my K5 they rub also when i make a sharp turn and hit a little bump. Their are two thinks to resolve this one is a 4" lift kit the other one is 31 tires.
