    I am planning on running 33X10.50X15 bfg all-terrains on factory wheels. However I have heard a few horror stories about the tires because there so tall and skinny. Have any of yall been using this tire size and if so what are the pros and cons. Thanks for the help.

    I know quite a few guys that run them on Prerunners and have no problems - The only complaint I've heard was beads popping during high speed (60 mph+) cornering in sand

    i used to run them on the front of my blazer with 33/12.50/15 on the rear. this gave me a better turning radius. i had no probles with them. matter of fact the radius was kinda nice.

    I just put these 33x10.5x15's BFG AT's on Jedi Mind Trick, and I've only had them on one trip (about 400 miles). they seemed to ride really well.

    I gotta agree they make 33x9.50x15's, and I know a lot of guys that run them with no problems. I wouldn't think it would be a problem at all.

    I went with them because that k5 is my on-road k5, and I didn't want something near as wide as a 12.5 (especially on the icy winter roads around here), and it is much less wind resistence.

    All Terrains are pretty much worthless in mud anyway, but I can't see any problem with them for the road or shallow snow. They'd be great in that application, especially the snow.
