Default How can I run 33's!

I recently purchased a 2005 ford ranger edge 2wd with a manual transmission. I'm curious what size tire i could run with a 3" body lift.
i would like to run 33x12.5 if anyone knows how or if it can be done please tell thanks

Lift and t-bar crank would be fine

You would only rub under extreme flexing

You could fiberglass your fenders and bedsides and run like 38's or something. Not saying its a good idea...

33s look great on a Ranger with a 3" lift, so good call.

To run 33's comfortably, you will need a body lift.

It depends on wheels: width, and backspacing and the width of the tires. I've seen 33x12.50's ran stock, with 15x8's and 3.75 BS. But there was trimming involved...and lots of rubbing.

You're best bet is just to do it right, and get a BL.

If you don't want a BL, or can't afford one, then run 32x11.50's.
