I am not sure if this is a consideration, but wouldn't a skinnier tire (say 33x10.5) weigh less than a normal (33x12.5). Less weight/rotational mass should mean that your axles, brakes, and engine don't have to work as hard to start and stop the tires.

33 x 9.5 BF Goodrich AT, BDS 1 3/4 in BB Suspension Lift. Haven't got suck yet (knock on wood) Want to get 35s eventually but I really like these tires.





Went through this mud hole after a jacked up blazer on 35s got stuck.

Yep, slightly modified. Works well, hasn't rattled anything loose or made any noise since I put it on since I did it nearly 3 months ago.

Do you have any body lift or just the BB? Any rubbing? I'm curious if the narrower tire can get away with less lift. It would be great if the 2"BB is all that is needed for a 33x9.5.

flatlander: im new to jeeps and offroading (just bought my first a few months ago) and your's was the first one i saw w/ 33x10.5, and honestly at first i hated them, i was dead set on goin w/ wider tires... but since then i've only grown on them as i've researched the advantages there are. now, i definitely think im goin w/ them when i get my next set.


nice jeep btw.
