I wouldn't go with anything over an inch. Honestly you need spacers to run 12.50's on stock wheels.

well didnt you just ask about cranked t bars if you dont have a lift on the truck then it will rub alot with the spacers unless you have a lift, just making sure dont want you to buy it and the tires rub. now if you have at least 2 inch or higher than the spacer should work but not with just cranked tbars. just making sure not trying to be rude bro

Right now i'm running 33x12.5 on a 15x8" rim w/ jus my t-bar crank and valence removed. My BL and shackels are goin in this week but i've been running around w/ this setup like this for abot 3weeks now. I would be careful wheeling it w/ no lift, then you'd prolly rub but if ur jus driving ur fine, their jus stuffed

Since youre buying 12.50's that should give you a pretty good stance. I wouldnt go to wide if you do buy the spacers.

I dont think they are dangerous. My buddy has been running a set for over a year on his Ranger with 295/75/16 tires and has had NO problems.

As long as they are properly looked after they are fine. A lot of people put them on and forget about them and there is where the problem is. You just need to remember that you have two sets of lugs on each wheel and need to check them.

well go ahead and trade as long as the tbars are cranked then you should be fine, just the spacers will rub i have a 2002 with cranked t bars on 33x12.50 im getting the body kit then 3.25 spacers so no rub, thats your best bet

They Will rub with no lift. Mine will Rub at full flex in the rear, and on the sway bar, and thats with the 3" BL. With no lift you can fit 33's but no wider than a 10.50, if you're gonna be wheelin it.
