So my buddy says he's got some all terrains 33x12.5x15 he'll sell to me.I just have the stock steel wheels with whatever backspacing came stock. I was wondering if I could run them? or should I look at wheels with better backspacing.because I'll prolly run them until I can save up for some nice wheels/ tires. Which will be like a couple weeks to a month.

Edit:
Won't my sidewalls be effected?

Min. requirement for that tire is a 8" wide rim , stock is 7" . It will take the tire but leave your tread rounded , wearing out the middle first . That would be the least of my concerns . IIRC , you got the IRO premium 4.5 lift . With this tire combo your suggesting , you will get some major rubbing on the control arms due to lack of off-set , rub the rear inner fender , and most likely the front bumper too . Mine had 9.5x33x15's on the stock wheels when I bought it , I ran into all 3 issues . New wheels , and all I needed was a bumper trim and the rear inner fender pinch seam flattened out with a hammer

can you fit them yes. is it the proper set up. no. Should get new rims with proper BS, 4 IIRC. Or order wheel spacers from spidertrax or Rough Country.

They will fit. I ran 33's on stock 95 limited rims for a couple years. You will need spacers or they will rub.

Sounds like I should find some wheels with the correct backspacing before I put them on. I think 15x10's with 4 inch backspacing should be good.

10" are too wide. The tire maybe 12.50 at the tread but it gets skinnier at the bead.

I found some 4x eagle alloy 15x8's with 5x4.5 lug pattern on craigslist for 175 or best, said they were for a ford ranger,but never installed. I'm just hoping he's still got em Friday when I get paid.
