A couple questions..

Can this size be mounted without a lift?

Is hard to get someone to mount the on OEM rims?

I am trying to decide between 33, 31 or 235/75

Yes they will fit but without some kind of lift they are close to fender. There are places that will mount them, just call around.

To answer your question, 33 x 10.50s will squeeze in without a lift. However, any amount of suspension travel can or will rub on steering components and fenders. I wouldn’t recommend it.

I’ve never had an issue with that size being mounted on stock wheels.

Thanks for all the input. So, 31s are a better option without a lift. Do 31s have any issues with rubbing?

Has not been an issue for me personally, however I understand even with stock suspension and 31’s depending on tire brand (slight variance from one brand to the next) wheel choice, load, articulation and spring condition there can. Seems I read here that on a few original 40’s you can see the slightest flaring on the rear fenders where this has happened.

I like 31’s on stock height, I may go to 33’s or 16” equivalent and an OME lift in the future, I feel those are the best 2 stockish combinations.

How about rubbing when turning or the rear fenders? I am looking at those tires. I feel like the 33 gives you an option for a lift down the road.

@desmocruiser

Is there much effort to steer (while stopped) or did you install power steering? I'm thinking about the :princess: and arm strength :hmm:
It is noticable, but I am not particularly bothered by the effort to steer with the 10.50's and no PS.

However if/when I do the lift I am contemplating going to the City Racer 16" wheel. For 2 bonus reasons:

Slightly easier steering with more narrow tire selections and I like the profile better in the 16" rim in ~33" tires.

I'm considering the 30 inch 9.5's, which are available. I'm keeping my truck stock, but not too wimpy of tires..

I think the 30x9.5-15 G003 Mud Terrain are a great small tire with a tread pattern that doesn't look wimpy. I know its probably a good idea, but I don't like the look of a 40 with a highway tire.

Not the 30x9.5 tire, but a good profile of the style.
