    Mine are 17” and tires are 285/70 r17 and even with the lift and wheels spacers I had to cut my bumpers to not rub and even then I still rub on the back side of the wheel well at full cock and that’s with worn tires. Brand new idk if I could even drive it lol. But I do believe I have a busted spring on my drivers side front. Noticed the other day that it’s sitting 1/2 inch lower than the other side and it’s been squeaky and creaky when driving now. Don’t see the spring broke but was advised by my mechanic that is more than likely the cause. On the fence if I just wanna replace the Rancho or go a different route with my lift. I have a spacer lift/level kit sitting in my garage I was gunna put it on top of the ranchos but I keep seeing everyone say not to do it.I’ll throw up a pic tomorrow when it’s day light of how far the wheels stick out so you can get an idea. Also I bet the weight is going to murder your gas mileage even more. I know my rig eats gas pretty fast I’m lucky if I’m getting 10/mile.

    Not sure on offset. I purchased the x with em on it. I do have I think inch and a half wheel spacers

    My 32’s on -6 offset rims just clear the front fender liners with 5” of lift, 33’s would most likely rub slightly on the trail.

    If you’re planning any off road use with those 33”s I would recommend a 3” body lift & 2” spacer lift. If you're just a Mall Crawler you could maybe get away with just the body lift. As mentioned in the previous thread, you will rub with just the Rancho quick lifts.
