Tire fitment - 33/12.5/17 on stock wheels

I need to get some "interim" tires for the winter as I wait to fund my lift and 35's. I'm already running BW flat flares. Wondering if I can run a 33x12.5 on the stock wheels, and would they require spacers to avoid contacting anything.

My stock rubi tires are cupped due to dealer overfilling the tires and my lazy *** not noticing until it was too late. Spare is riding rear driverside as I pulled a 3" lag screw out of the tire last week.

Thanks .

A 12.5 tire on the stock rim is a tight fit and usually not recommended by the tire mfgr. The 12.5 width will rub on full lock turns without a spacer to decrease stock rim backspacing....please read the FAQ on Will it Rub...

Yes, you need spacers. A 1.5" Spidertrax will fit the bill. Don't cheap out on the spacer.

I have two BFG Mud Terrain's (stock rubi tires) that I just took off my jeep I'm selling. Make me a good offer and their yours. Check the for sale section, or look up my post under my profile.

The only drawback/w the 33"/spacers and a square tread tires--

With stock bumpers the tires will rub on full turns, the spacers save in one way and detract in another--

watch out what tires you buy, for tread design-

Thanks Jimbo. I'm running a RR XHD shorty bumper in the front. Frankly I'm reluctant to buy any tires now, but I dont have the room (physically or financially) to clear 35's and I don't have the tread life on the current 32's. On my old Xterra I ran Toyo AT's on stock rims in the winter and Destination MT's on steelies during the wheeling season...that prolongued the life of the MT's and gave me solid traction for Canadian winters. Anyway..
