Here is the before and after pics of my Explorer. It had 235's and I uped them to 31's. I also adjusted the torsion bars a bit to get the clearance I needed.

see the pics on my web site

Ha. I thought that might come up. No one thought it was the same Ex the first time I posted it because of the difference in color. The key pad is gone because I reversed the photo so they'd be facing the same direction.

Those are 32's on there, not 33's.
 






hmm must be the angle! so 32 do rub some under there w/ the TT and shackles you say? How much trimming you have to do?
 






Pretty minimal... but ballsy, trimming. I took about an inch or so back from the rear of the front tire.

It's not the cleanest trim job. But my fenders were dinged anyway. Plus the other side looks tons better.:D

alrighty. will 31's have to get a trim job if i get them?
 






Nope. Thats what I ran for the last year or so. Never rubbed at all. Do you have the TT/Shackles done yet?
 






getting them done next week whill i'm outa town. bud of mine is doing them and when i wear out the tires i got on there now i'm replacing them for 31 sence thre no rubbing in them!
 






I think you'll love the new look of your Ex after the TT/Shackles. If you click on the link in my signature you'll go to my website and the 3 pictures at the bottom are of mine with 31's and TT/Shacks. Good luck and post before and after pics when youre done.
