33x10.50 BFG MT on Ravines

Anyone running this setup? I am starting to like the look of the skinnier tire. I run 32x11.50 BFG ATs right now with spidertrax spacers. My thought is with the 10.50 I can get rid of the spacers and tuck the tires back under the flares.

The spray from my current tires outside of the flares can be a bit of an issue when I drive to work with no doors.

If you run the 33x10.50 on Ravines do you rub or would I need to keep the spacers?

Thanks all!

It'll be close but you should be able to get away with it. At worst you will just need some spacers on the steering stops to prevent rubbing at full lock.

Edit: although to go to 33s you should also add a 1.25" BL for proper fender clearance.

and much more...

Here is mine with that exact setup awhile ago. I did have at least one washer in the steering stops with RE LCAs and two when I had stock LCAs (am now on black steelies w/ 3.75 BS):

Wouldn't the taller tire have a better chance to rub than a smaller tire of the same width (ie. 31x10.5 vs 33x10.5) at full turn?

I had AT's on Ravine's....31 x 10.5", They didn't rub at all. Chewy

I don't know - I put my 33 x 10.50's on Gamblers which are the same backspacing and they were way too close to the upper rear spring perchs for my liking. I put on spacers.

I looked up in my wheel well yesterday and it looks like there would be enough room with 10.50s without the spacers. I have 11.50s right now with spacers so it seems that the net change would push the wheel in about 1" max. I think I may measure my current tires without the spacers in the next week or so.
