    i have no lift and 33x12.5x16in tires and have never had any rubbing the key is to have a positive offset rim take a look at the pics and videos in the links below by the way i scored a 704 on a 23 degree rti ramp and still no rubbing

    you will probably rub some when articulating with stock rims. you do not need to cut or trim as much as steve did on the uav but should trim some to avoid rubing. i will be triming mine as i am putting a 2.5in lift and 36in tires

    You will probably rub a little but you don't need to cut. I ran 32's and no lift for years. The only reason I didn't use 33's is because my Dad won't get rid of running boards. They shouldn't rub enough to really worry about or matter.

    Ahhhhhhh running boards evil, evil, evil. Get 'em away. Hahaha. All I've seen them do is cause rust, get bent, and get in the way. Not trying to tell you what to do but if wants something to step on, I'd get those step tube deals like from Westin that bolt the frame. Much cleaner, tougher, smaller, and just better looking.

    You are 100% correct. The only reason there still on beside my Dad is figure that I would rather bend the running board than the rocker. They are already bent, so I don't care if they get abused. One day I will have enough money to put on some rock sliders with a step, but until then I got boards.

    I ahev 33x12.5x15 stock rally wheels rims. no lift(yet) and no rubbing yet. I think if I did some off roading though with the wheels truned it would get close if I hit a bump. Still may not rub, don't know yet. So far, no trimming needed.

    I am a Dad with teenagers and:
    I would NEVER allow my son to drive around with running boards. As the eariler post said " They are Evil". Running boards have been known to corrupt youth. Kids who are forced to drive rigs with running boards have been known to graduate to more hard core bolt ons like huge spoilers in the back and coffee can exahust pipe tips.
    Tell your dad you must rid yourself of those boards before you get the overwhelming compulsion to start driving a RICER.
