Don't do it. We tried to salvage our OEM aluminum rims w/ a +1" offset and you can't get the wheel to go all the way. It's going to hit the sway bar. Cragar (or similar) soft 8's or 10 D's are damn good looking rims and only cost $40-60 a rim. Suck it up and mount the 33's on steelies. It'll look great, fit correctly, and really sharpen up your ride. Just my
