Default what width rim should i get to put 33 12.5 15 on my fx4 level II

I have a 2005 fx4 level II that sits stock and I am going to turn the tbars to level it out. Can I put 33 12.5 15 on it w/o a lift and I am ordering new rims I slightly want the tires to stick out so what width rim do I need?

either 15x8 or 15x10. yes you can run a 33 without BL, but you will rub and it looks stuffed as hell. Im not sure why people wanna do this. if you want to run big tires, then lift it, if not then leave them alone. 33s on non BL'slooked stuffed...period. if you like the stuffed look, then by all means.

here is a non BL'd ranger on 33s (he is lifting soon though)

With just t-bars cranked up I would go with 32's you would be less likely to rub but if you want 33's go for it. 10.5 tires should be on 8 inch wide rims while 12.5 tires should be on 10 inch wide rims. If you put 12.5's on an 8 inch you may get a balloon effect with the tire. In order to get the tires out from the body that would have to deal with back spacing, also with the farther out you go the more likely you will rub the front fenders when turning. Talk to your local off road shop and see what they have say about the spacing cause it can tend to get a little confusing with back spacing and bolt patterns and what rims are offered with what spacing.

RCD makes a suspension system for these trucks that converts the front suspension from t-bars to coil-overs, however when I contacted them about it they said they were not making it any more. I may be wrong though because I came across a web site that claimed to still have them for sale. Its a 5.5in lift but other then that I dont konw of any one

they have stopped making the rcd lift for a couple years now the only way of getting one is finding a used one for sale so your only bet is to go with a superlift and finding someone to get to make some coil over brackets think theres a guy on ranger-forums that has made em
