    Heck yes, I know this is annoying, but searching for 33's doesn't really yield much of a result when looking for pictures....
    So, I would really love to see some pics of k5's, BURBS, and trucks on 33 inch tires. any comments on gears, lift, and thoughts on 33's would be appreciated also. :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

    okokok, enough pics from me, but just some information about 33's,,,,,,,,

    THEY ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH!!!

    :haha: :D :haha:

    kinda why i am building a trail rig now, don't want to go much bigger on the D.D. but definately need larger tires to go where the big boys go and not worry about body damage :D


    funny thing is, i was told when i started the slight transformation on the Burb, and i think it's a motto or saying here on CK5,,,,"you will always want bigger, and more"

    true

    33's with 4 inches. They are too small for me. I am in the market for AT LEAST 35's, They are getting bald anyway.

    Dug some up for you

    Oh ya 33's feel reel small on a K5, my 40's look small now too :rolleyes:

    Jesse

    OH and I had 33's with 2.73 freeway fliers on my silver K5 before I went one ton 4.56 and 40". The 2.73 gears were horrible, no power, no throttle response, It hated hills, living in a basin at the time too.

    Here's my entry. No lift, 33's. IMO, 33's should be left to stock height trucks. Any lift and visually they make the wheelwells look too big and the tires too small.

    33s on a 4" pro-comp. Stock 3.73 gearing.


    They work good, but I need to put gears in before I go any bigger...

    4.10 gears. lots of low end power, does well on the highway also. those are worn 295X75X16 all terrains. more or less were a 33'' under a 4'' tc lift
    at full flex i rub. i want 35'' but until i do zero rates i think i might just find some really wide 33''
