    They will look fine. There is a guy around here with a 4" lift and 33"s with those wheels and it looks good.

    They will look a whole lot better than a big money wheel bill if you don't have the budget right now.[​IMG]

    Are they 7" wide rims or 8" ones? The ones on my rig turned out to be 7", and from what I've been told it's not real safe to run anything wider than say a 33 x 10.5". A buddy of mine put 12.50's on some 7"rims I sold him and he's still alive, though he did move to the east coast and has probably changed that setup by now. Hopefully you've got 8" rims, I know I kinda bit the bullet and threw 33x9.50's on mine to save the cost of new wheels, they look ok from the front and the side but the rear leaves a lot to be desired. When I switch to new wheels I might even go with 10.50's up front and 12.50's or even 14.50's in the back, figure it'll help with the turning radius and maybe plow a little less when switching lanes on snowy roads.

    I'm running the factory aluminum wheels with Champion beadlocks and 37x13 Boggers. I ran 35x12.5 Mud terrains before this and have never experienced any problems.
