    I think if you want to go with 16" wheels, you are going to need a metric size. BFG's come in metric sizes that equal a 35" tire.

    If you want a 33 in a 16", get either a 285/75 or 305/70. 285 is a 33" tire, but 10.5 wide, where the 305/70 is the same as a 33/12.5. A 315/75 is a 35". Any tire manufacture online will have the sizes.

    According to BFG, the actual height is 34.8", same as their 35/12.5R15

    EDIT: I just re-read the whole thread. I thought you wanted 35's, 33's would be 255/85R16 which are 33.3" or 285/75R16 which are 33.1"

    Okay, in the 33" tall corner there is the 285-75-16 (about a 33x1050) the 295-75-16 (about a 33.5x1150) the 305-75-16 about a 34x1250 and the 315-75-16 about a 35x1250. The 295 is a nice size since it fits a lot easier than the 305 due to the width difference. At work we can shove a 295 on a stock super duty or dodge 2500/3500.
