yup got a cj7 i spent more in storage then i have driveing it. everytime i put it on the road i race something then brake something. Smallblocks jeeps and 4 speeds what fun with the hondas.

Anywas thats another story.

I got the jeep in storage got the wheels sitting on it drove maybe 4 to 800 miles on the tr4xus loved them. drove my cj threw snow 12 inchs deep two wheel drive never had a problem.

It brakeing my hart they dont make a 32 trxus

how bad ya think they will rub doin beach driveing.

My purpose for the cruiser is i have a handicaped son with cerebral palsey and he cant walk. No room in a cj for a wheel chair uncomfortable for him to ride in pluss i brake it to much.

Now i will be able to take my son in some type of comfort and out of the weather when it get nasty out. Pluss me and my pops plan on doin some fishing gonna do hatteras for the blue and canda for the salmon hopefuly both by end of november in the cruiser .

Hopefully this be last pics of these tires on the cruiser.

intercos website claims an actual 33 inchs tall for there 33s and actualy 12.7 wide man im sceard
wich is gonna rub worse front or rear im guessing front. How you think it would wheel with a 9.50 33 on front i was thinking maybe a bfg at for the front beins they got a 9.50 and it only 120 something.then i would atleast have me three extra spares for when i pop one lol. :doh:

those stock, if they are stock spirngs looks good to me. If the springs were old and saggy, the rear tire would be ALOT closer the the inside of that fenderwell. That and just from the pic you can still see arch in the rear sprng.

For just driving on the beach it will rub little.

I DD 33x11.5's on my 1987 FJ60, and they don't rub. Only under full flex.

Cost wise I would just go with the BFG's You said $120 for BFG's, those are $118. I have some off brand BFG AT's on the wifes car now and they are great over 30K miles on them and they still have about 1/2 tread. They are called sidewinders.

Also, feel free to look around at used tires. I have a set of 31x10.5 BFG AT's for the wifes 4runner after the current tires are shot. Picked them up to go on the cruiser but ended up buying a lift. So I decided to keep them for her truck.

Picked up the tires waiting to go on my cruiser (lift and $) for $75 for the set then pciked up a spare for $35 and another spare for free. So I have 6 BFG MT's for $110! Deals are out there, just have to be willing to be patient!

ONly other thing I didnt see you ask about was the rims you have working with the 33x12.5 and that is discussed at length on several threads!

Props for figuring out some cool stuff to do with your son!

Two issues as I see it.

1. Wheels on a stock cruiser are 6" wide. Most prefer 8" rims for a 12.5 wide tire.

2. Tire height/width could work, depending on how hard you stuff them into the wheel wells. The stock suspension does not have enough clearance to prevent rubbing with those tires. To prevent rubbing completely, you'll need shackles/add-a-leaf/etc.

There are lots of posts on tires/suspensions. Do a search, see what others are using.

FWIW, going to 31X10.50 is a really easy option. Almost no downside. It'll work on the suspension, won't make much difference on gearing, will look lots better than the stock tires, and are make in large volume so tend to be pretty affordable.

I run 33X12.50s on 15X8s with 3.75bs on my 84 FJ60 with a 1in body lift, 1in of lift in the shackles and stock springs. Full flexed the front end almost rubs when the wheels are turned. I am sure if my BFGs were new they would hit.

today i discoverd a friend of mines dad is trying to get rid of 3 bfg AT 32/11.50/15s and two goodyear AT 32/11.50/15s
For 225.00
Sitting on chevy 5 lug rims. bummer they aint 6 lug.

These on stock rims i should be good right? Minimal ruybbing when stuffed i guess? Yes i no ima have to be carefull with air pressures for driveing on roads . Gonna have to find the happy medium air psi to prevent crowning on the tires. And now i dont have to start strippiung my jeep yet! Will i be alright on the backspaceing with a 11.50? or should i pick up a set of spacers for the front rims?

How do you think 2 bfg At and 2 Goodyear at will do. I no to be carefull of the mud with them. But how should they do on Wet rocks , snow, and sand?

I say run the 33s if your not gonna be flexing alot. Take the cash for new tires and get some shackles or rearched springs if they end up rubbing. From recent threads it seems many feel 12.5 is okay (not ideal) and fairly safe on stock rims provided the beads set up okay to the rim. Although I think my rims are 8in wide, I run 33x12.5 without a lift and can articulate the hell out of my suspension with no rubbing. Seems weird how others don't have the clearance and others do? Maybe its also weird that my 60 has coilovers (PO I guess) in the back along with the leaf springs!

fjman,

are the coilovers on the shocks? If so they are just like a load helper. Or it seems that is what I remeber.

well i landed up picking up two bfg At 32/11.50/15s two goodyear At 32/11.50/15s and i think the fith one is a sidewinder maybe i duno its a bfg wanabe. Got them all for 225.00 the bfgs are like 95 percent tread. still got the little wear beads sticking off the treads on them. The goodyears are like half tread the oddball one is like 75 percent tread., I figure it like this i got two bfgs for 225 and the other three tires were free. LOL

DOne maybe 20 minutes of playing nothing serrious just a couple trails one tiny wooptydoo hill. Today im gonna tackle the biggest hill around . maybe 6 storys or more not real big but steep as all hell. Fun in the cj and my girls yj .
