So here's the deal, Right now I have 31x10.5 inch tires with 15x8 allied datona wheels. I'm going to be needing new tires by the start of this summer, and I want to get bigger tires. I have F150 coils, and my truck sits up about 1.5-2'' higher than a stock 4x4 extended cab ranger with 31x10.5 tires. I am 100% sure I could fit 32x11.5 Mud terrains on there with minor or no rubbing at all, But I really want 33x12.5 tires. The problem is I'm doing this on a budget, and I really don't want to lift if I don't have too. Plus I like the short, stalky, aggresive look. I have seen some rangers on here that say they have about 2 inches of lift (similar to what I have) and they fit 33x12.s tires with only minor or no rubbing. I know the back tires would fit fine, I am just worried about the front.

Is it possible to fit coil spacers under the F150 coils just for a little bit more lift? What is the worst that could happen if I got the 33x12.5'' tires and there was rubbing?

Does anyone have pictures of a '93-'09 with 32x11.5 or 33x12.5 tires with no BL lift or suspension? I've only found one picture with those specs and it was a bad angle..

Any input helps.... Thanks.

Here is a semi recent picture taken about 7 months ago.. Looks the same only I took off that ugly tool box. I have a good amount of space in between the tires...

your gunna rub in the front for sure if you dont lift it a couple of inches, the worst that can happen would be them rubbing then tearing something off your truck, you might be able to put an 1" spacer under the coils to give it more lift but i still think your going to need more than that

My credo
"220, 221, whatever it takes."
For 33's you will need at least a 4" suspension lift or 3" body lift.
