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.
