Max them and throw in Belltech 6400 shackles. Then of course you'll need bigger tires

It'll look a lot better than the 33x10.5... they are too narrow of a tire for the height. Need the width to make it look beefy. If ur gonna go 33's i'd suggest 12.5" width but then u gotta get into body lifting, t-bar maxing and such. plus then u got a ton more tire options

33's would look great. I love my tires. Plus they're not too wide. Only 11" instead of the normal 12.50"

I have basically the same setup (t-bar crank & same same tires) and nope, not on 32s they don't.
