      So I have a 95 explorer and I've done the shackle and torsion bar lift. I will have a 3 in body lift on in a week (ranger kit). And I know you all have said I can gett 33x12.5 in tires. But does anyone know if this size of tire will fit on my stock rims? They are 16 in rims. Probably a stupid question, But hey.

      yes.
      but a 12.5" wide tire on a 7" wide wheel, you will get terrible tire wear patterns.
      You will get more wear in the center of the tire than the outer portions of the read.

      8" minimum.
      You will still get accelerated wear in the center compared to the outer tread, but not near as bad.
      although most tires do have listed wheel width reccommendations. Usually 8.5"-10"
