    The thing that determines if they fit is the backspacing of the tire. 33" will fit but ya need to know the backspacing. And I dunno about sand . . .

    Um...fill out your profile! Do you have a lift? Are you using it for rock crawling or mudding (are you gonna be flexing it?)? I would go 32's at the biggest or your tires will gladly rearange your sheet metal. [​IMG] That's just my opinion though. I think there are several people who are running 33's with out a lift, but I don't remember if they've trimmed their fenders or not.

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    I had 33 12.5's now I have 33 10.5 BFG AT KO's no rubbing no fender trimming no lift but as offroad as I get is logging roads when I hunt

    i have a stock suspended 78 (unitl i recieve the lift). the 12.5 33s WILL rub on turns. when i did all the body work i got them to cut out a thin piece on the fenders at an angle. then they welded stock flare back, so it looks real original.
    the ATs are good on sand. of course not as good as sand tires. airing down to 12-15psi, lets you do anything except trying to go up a steep hill on the real soft stuff.

    I just put on 33 10.50's yesterday, stock rally rims on my 1990 w/ no lift. Everything clears fine, but I am sure if I ever get it flexed right it will do some modifications to the sheet metal.

    And the sand question, right on the side wall they have "Baja Champion" so I would guess that they do well in the sand.
