Exclamation Tires wont fit!!!!!!!

after waiting nearly 3 months i got my bfg km2 tires in for my 2006 level 2 with 3" body lift. I've been in a alcohol revovery program for almost 90 days now, In Texas baby. anyway these were sopposed to be a welcome home present for me, but the guy in at the shop 2000 miles away said the tires will rub the fendors! they are 33x10.5x15, i thought they would fit with the bl. demonfx4 has the same set up. I dont know if i should now order spacers or start all over again. I'l check back on the forum tomorrow night, thanks

That tire tech is the biggest fucking moron ever! With a body lift and a tbar crank we can fit 35's! hell the normal size for just a BL'd ranger is 33x12.5. Tell him he is a ******* and to put them on. If it was me I'd smack the guy upside the head and tell him not to think and get to work lol.

Your running a TTB truck he's running a TBAR/A-Arm truck it works different. 33x10.5 easily clears on a 3" BL I ran them on my truck with a 1" BL and had plenty of space.

My only guess as to why they might rub would be if you had one hell of an offset rim that when you turned they would catch. But with a 10.5 on a standard offset you wont have any problems. I have 33's with 9" lift, my tires rub the control arm when I crank the wheel over, but I have a 12.5" on standard offset rims, and thats why they grab.

The red truck is running 33's on a very slight t-bar crank, and a 1/2" valence trim. No BL. You will be fine.

you dont need spacers. Are you running stock wheels or aftermarket?
