I'm trying to plan ahead for once my duratracs wear down or if I can come across some used mud tires. Whats the largest size I can squeeze under my rig w/ minimal clearance issues. Would I have any issues w/ a 12.5 wide 33 or idealy 35? I know It would be tight but I imagine that a 35x10.5 would fit nicely. and I like the 10.5 width, but a littel wider would be nasty. :D What do you guys think?

biggest is a 33. no way on a 35 without hacking your fenders and bumpers and frame. 12.50 width on any tire will rub the frame no matter what rims you have.

You guys don't think a skinny 35 would fit? It looks like it would be snug but they would clear

Whats the issue w/ rubbing? Width or the Diameter? I know a 35 would involve trimming. I'm trying to find an old juck 35 or 33 for a test fit.

you can fit 35s with a lil work, crazeycowboy and riverboygmc have both done it, there is also a red truck that was never a member that had 35x12.50 mudgrapplers on xtreme wheels with the same set up

You may be able to do it with the right backspacing, but the second your suspension flexes with the wheel turned you'll be rubbing. If you don't mind rolling the fender flare back like dents, then redo the body mount you would clear them. But I only know of a TSL swamper in that size, and the tread is actually much wider than 10.5, and they are bias ply which I wouldn't suggest for street use.

I believe there are a few 34x11.5 tires out there that measure out to like 33.7"x11.2", that should only have minimal rubbing.

I thought shanes(dents and dings) coops were 35x10.50?Yes they do make the TSL in a 10.50 wide and according to interco's website they are a true 10.50 wide.:thumbup:

I'm pretty sure he had 35x12.50 I don't think cooper makes a 35x10.5 or even a 35x11.5. He runs 10" wide wheels too which would be risky with a 10.5" tire. It sucks though once you go over a 32" diameter the off road tires all have 12.5" widths and up which sucks on these trucks for fitment.
