Tire Dilemma

Here is the deal..... I have a 1" BL on right now. I have a REBB sitting in the garage ready to go on.
In order to run 32X11.50X15's I will need to purchase wheel spacers. Wheel spacers will be about $62.00 a wheel. I want to keep my stock rims.
I have seen guys with 33X10.50X15's with no wheel spacers. I can get tires this size for around $42.00 a tire more. This would save $20.00 a wheel and $60.00 on the whole project. Can I run 33X10.50X15's with just a 1"BL and a REBB?

I am not running 33's but rather 31" X 10.5" on my stock rims. The height of the tire should not be a problem since you have a 1"bl and a 2" bb but where you may run into a problem is in the tire width. You may notice the tires rubbing when you are full steer. That can be solved by adjusting you steer stops which is what I did and I believe many others also have done it. Here is a link to a good write-up. http://www.4x4xplor.com/steerstop.html

Hope that helps.

Yes you can run that set-up. Keep in mind you will get some rubbing especially disco'd with 33s. While you don't need wheel spacers with 10.5" tires, you probably will need to add a couple of washers on the steering stops to prevent rubbing. Afterall, stock is 9.5" so one inch bigger could create minor rubbing without the proper backspacing.

No rubbing with 32x11.5s with ravine wheels.However the rear spring perches come with in a 1/2 inch, still no rubbing yet. I have no washers in front on the turn stops and still no rubbing on full turns.Again I have not don these monuvers on full flex.
