Will my tire rip my tailgate off?
« on: June 20, 2019, 06:24:47 PM »

Im running 33-12.5s now, I wonder if my spare is going to rip my tailgate off.

What size have you guys gotten away with?

Also, Im running 2 spacers up front and would rather run some deep dish offset rims. What are you guys using for rims to keep the tire off the leaf springs?

33" tire will at best bend your tailgate. Most use a 2.5 inch backspace on the wheels. Where you located? I have a set that I just pulled off of mine that are in great condition still.
