There's already a thread for lift and tire questions. Use the SEARCH button above.

don't worry about these guys.

33's easy, possibly 35's. with a bit of trimming.
for 12.5 wide tire, get 8 inch wide rims, for 13.5, get 10 inch wide rims.

i like minimum of 3.75 backspace for the 8 inch rim and 3.0 for 10 inch rims.

but that's what i have and my experience with them is positive.

i have 33's on my 6.5" lift. you can do 35's with some trimming, but you might want to look into beefing up the axles by that point.

You should be fine on all the stock axles with 33s

Not only do you need to try the search button but you also should post in the right section. This is not a build this is a tech question that is asked EVERYDAY

I really hope you're kidding......
To the OP wrong section as mentioned but for an actual answer 33s would even be small for that much lift so 33s-35s is where you want to be. Plus you'll want to re-gear too.

agreeed! 33s is small on that lift. i have a 3 inch and i have 33s! so ur most reasonable answer is go as big as ur space will allow you to! 35s will look good and will look better if that wheel well is filled with tire!!
