How wide of a tire tire can I fit on my 08 Y-spokes? I'm also getting my torsion keys installed along with 2" blocks for the rear springs next week. From what I've read I should be able to run 33's with this set up, does that sound right? Thanks!

are they 15s or 16s? i believe both factory wheels are 7'' wide and its not recommended to run wider than a 265 or a 10.50' on a 7' wheel. if you go to an 8' wheel you should be able to run like a 305/70/16 or 33x12.50x15 no problem. if you have 16s you could probably get by with a 285/75/16 (33") on the factory wheels, they would be a little wide though.

16's.

Do you think I would need wheel spacers?

im pretty sure you wouldnt, the only time you really need those is you have the wrong offset wheel (if it is a high positive offset it will stick in).

A wider than stock tire will stick in further than a stock tire on the same rim.

As in, towards the frame?

Both sides, the tire is wider so more sticks out over the sides of the rim. But if it is enough to rub I don't know.

im guessing the stock size is a 245/75/16? if so that is about a 9.5'' wide tire and a 285 is about an 11.5'' wide tire so it will stick in (and out) about an inch farther so you could have a buddy turn your steering wheel while you check to see if it looks like you have an extra inch? just my 2 cents
