Default Tire Comfort

hey guys, ok I realize I have a truck and if im lifting it and stuff it isn't going to ride like a perfect car ride. I was just curious, im putting a body lift on, and my stock tires that are so tiny, 235x75x15 and becauase they weren't rotated by the previous owner and they are cupped and messed up pretty badly as far as a good ride goes. Im just wondering when I go up to 33x12.5 MT's, will the ride be better. I know its a MT so its not going to ride perfect like a road tire, but im meaning like the bigger sidewall and being MUCH wider tires than the stock ones. Looking for serious logical responses. Thanks, Zach.

My truck is double lifted and I have run 33's since the beginning. It vibrates a little for having AT's on. Yours may vibrate the same or a little more but I would imagine the ride would be greatly improved once the new skins are on, balanced and the alignment is done!

my 33" muds ride smooth as glass. at slower speeds (25 MPH and under) you can feel the lugs on the tires but otherwise they handle and ride very well.
