So im sure people get sick of seeing the same things get posted...or PM'd..
So in this thread post up what you did to fit 33" tyres. As much info as possible.

Eg.
I fit 33x10.5x15 on neg 22 offset rims with a 2" suspension lift (torsion bars and extended shackles). Removed the front mudflap. Minor scrubbing at full lock on full flex.
(example only i never had 33's!, will delete once someone else add's theres.)

If you had a different experience or width/rim offset/lift then post it up!

Chit chat to a minimum please.

33x12.5 tyres on 15x8 rims with -1/2" offset.
2" body lift, 40-50mm susp lift.
took front mudflaps off and bent in the metal lip behind there with a hammer :)
tyres stick out about 40mm so put flares on.

Running 33'' Silverstone Xtremes, major scrubbing at full lock, I have a 2'' Sus and a 2'' body. Will be doing some major massaging on the inner guard.

Just fitted Kumho KL71's to 0 offset steel rims. Usual trimming to front guards to make 'em fit. Have yet to give them a good run off road but will be at LCMP on the 25th and 26th so we'll give em a good testing and report back after. Comparison is to my factory spare.

Would 33's fit with a 3" suspension lift or do you ideally need a body lift also? I don't mind working the inner guards. And what offset would suit 33's best without sticking too far out the guards.

Thanks

Ideally you'll need a 2" body or get creative with a grinder/hammer pn the inner gaurd.

King do +20 in 16x8's. I've got them with 285/75s and they just sit inside the guards.

Hey Tommy,

Who's King? Just to confirm it's definitely +20 offset? Did you have to do much work on the guards after you fit them?

King is a Brand of sunraysia stye rims. Yes +20 offset (just ask you 16x8's to suit your d22 and they should get it right)

Guard triming looks like. (could fit larger tire but i didn;t want to have to do it again ~ 30mm extra clearance)

I just put on 33x12.5x15 on my d22 it's got a 2inch lift kit with a 2inch body. Rims are the king sun raiser with a negative 23 offset they do stick out the guards about 40mm so put flares on and massage the inner gaurd closer to the door. But the end result is worth it.

Hey guys, I am running bog stock suspension that is probably a bit sagged as it has done 180,000kms and I have 235/85/16 (32") muddies fitted to stock 16X6 DX Navara rims, I have removed the front mud guards and have no rubbing issues at all even on full flex, I cant see why I would have any real issues with fitting a 2" suspension lift and then 33"s as there is only an extra 1/2" of clearance needed. Correct me if I am wrong but I can not see any need for a body lift at the moment.

You're running narrow wheels with a decent positive offset (probably +40)with narrow tryes which is allowing you plenty of clearance on full lock.

If you get tall skinny tyres (not sure what sizes make in tall n skinnies) you will probably have no probs.

The reason why most guys have problems is because they are buying 7 or 8 inch wide wheels which also only come in +20 offset or more negative, and they are putting on 265mm wide tyres or more.

So basically the wider the tyres and the more negative the offset the more likely you are to get scrubbing. Its not just tyre height that has an affect.

That sounds fair, but 1 of my mates just picked up an 03 (I think) D22 and went to the local tyer place and got a set of 265/75/16 (32") Bighorns and the only thing he had to do was take off the front mud flaps, the rims are 16X7 sunnies, and we think they may be LandCruiser off set as they look a bit different to another mates D22 sunnies but he has a fir amount of clearance. I will be fitting a 2" lift in a few months, then I think I am going to go for a set of 33"s, if I have to mod (bash with a large hammer) my inner guards so be it, but I have a good feeling that I will not need a body lift.

Hi , I borrowed a set of 16 "land cruiser rims 33" 285 wide off an 80 series not sure what offset but I don't think there's any offset either way with a 2+2 lift , they stick out of the guards about 30mm tyres are half worn and they scrub a little on full look on a flat surface , but it looks AWSOME and now saving madlly for tyres

I have a d22 2inch lift with 33s. 285/75 16.
Removed the mud flap and with the trusty hammer they fit and look great. Stick out a bit not sure if I'm adding flares just yet. The rims have a 0 offset and also tried +20 they also fit but don't look as tuff as 0 offset. My only problem is fitting the spare. Not sure if it will fit, has anyone got a 33 in the spare underneath?

285/75R16 spare fits just. Touches towbar and clears handbreak cable by 10mm. It is a bit close to the exhaust but just bent the exhaust brackets to move it away from the tyre.

285/75R16 D-Cepeck FCII half worn on 16x8 0P rims. Have 2 inch suspension and 2 inch body lift and did the usual trimming and panel beating and still get light scrubbing at full aticulation when turning. I will have to have another look at it when I get some time and may take it to panelbeaters to have the front of the sill cut and shut an inch further back. I don't think I would get a new set of 285/75R16 muddies on how it is at the moment.

Recently fitted coopers STT's, 285/75/r16 on a black 16x8 dynamic steelie with 0 offset. NO body lift (just yet) ...just a 3" suspension lift.
upon first fit, could not achieve full lock so i removed the mud flaps and took at the inner guards with an angle grinder and FILE! removed close to 2 inches of pointless car, then was all sweet. full lock achieved! so far i've heard no scubbing, even with flex

heres a few more pics of the clearance between the front tire and guard. i chose to keep the plasticin there.. just pumped a lil expandafoam in the nooks and used a heat gun to mould the plastic to the new shape...just to keep mud and crap outa there

I just put on a set of 285/75R16 bfg km2 muddies on some king +20 8" rims, I have a calmini 3" lift kit, no body lift and only had to take a hammer to the guards a little bit, have tested the flex at full lock and no scrubbing.

Will put up pictures when i have a chance.

Okay so a quick one please people, For those who have put on 33's how are you finding the ute handling/getting up to speed ect?

I love it so far as it seems to take less revs to get to speed, she seems to drive a whole lot smoother and what not, BUT how far out has it put your speedo? I seem to do 92km's on my speedo and i am almost flogging cars doing 100km/hr and after quite a bit of driving im pretty sure speedo is out by 10k/hr, Will test on GPS when i have a chance.

Is there a way to get the speedo adjusted to match the bigger tires? And will this affect how quickly/slowly the truck racks up km's on the dash due to bigger tires?

Thanks in advance

Brett

tony d22
28-04-2012, 09:58 PM
You'll have to get your speedo re calibrated to get an accurate speed. Putting the 33's on will be so close to the right speed anyway, maybe 1 or 2 kms/h over.

All i've done to fit 33x12.5x17 cooper st's is +20 offset 17x8 king wheels, 38mm lifting blocks in rear, tough dog 2 inch shocks all round, wound up torsion bars to about 8mm from top bump stop and trimmed a little front mud flap with a stanly knife. Only has a little scrubbing on mud flap.

Hi all,

I am looking at getting 33 for my 2011 D22. I have a 2" suspetion lift kit. Was just woundering, will i have to do a body lift as well be for fitting them????

Raczy
07-05-2012, 02:21 PM
You wont have to if you get the the right offset for the wheels. But you will get scrubbing on the inner guard near the mudflap area.
Remove the mudflap and a bit of work and its fine.

brucon
12-05-2012, 11:07 AM
A bit confused every one is mentioning positive offset rims is that because they don't make negative off in the kings or sunnys, or is it cos they won't clear the caliper, neg would save a bit of massaging would it not?

Hey guys. Everyone has had to modify the front guards, but what about the rear end? One of the guys who fitted 33's recently needed to mod the rear as well. He doesnt have a body lift as of yet?

Also, for the guys who go offroad a fair bit, is going to the trouble of fitting 33's worth it over 32's?

With having to cut guards, loss of power and body lifts, is it still worth it? (Extra clearance would be nice)

Considering 33"s but really dont want a body lift being in Vic.

Depends on how much off roading you do and if your just touring or getting into the harder stuff. Having 33 's for over a year now, there is no way I'd get through some of the places I've been with 31 's. As long as you don't tow much 33's are the go.

Might test fit some 33's and see what exactly id have to do.

I do a fair bit. Having mates with Patrols i tend to try harder tracks as well. So any extra clearance would be nice. Don't tow very often either. Will be getting a lokka soon also.

My only concern with a body lift and not being able to engineer it would be having an accident and not getting covered.

I wonder what the smallest body lift would work with 33's, 30mm maybe? Someone would have to be looking closely to notice a 30mm lift.

ben85
18-07-2012, 12:32 AM
just go 50mm bl.

it doesn't look that noticeable height wise. you would be looking at the body mounts to see if they're sitting on blocks which will be just as obvious be it 30mm or 50mm, you're not going to miss body blocks if you look at them, the front ones and the tray blocks are easy to spot.

tommy222220_0
18-07-2012, 06:48 AM
I used zordos kit. The blocks are black and very hard to spot. As for the tray ones some black rubber glued in the wheel well covers them nicely.

If you do a bit of wheeling then the extra 50mm is quite handy. I've lifted bullbar, fuel tank, sliders and rear bar to match bodylift. Keeps things tucked up higher than the chassis.

Here's some old pics to show what I mean about extending the rubber splash covers

Cheers guys,

We have used one of the local vic engineers before through work, so might get in touch with him and see if he would sign off on it. Can only ask. If i cant get it signed off on for a decent price i may just stick with 32's. See what happens. Will need new tyres at the end of the year, so got a little time to research and think about it. 33's would be nice though.

I've just fitted BF Goodrich A/T's 285/75/16 to 16 x 8 dynamic steel rims with +20 offset.
Tyre's only just fit inside the flares. I removed the mudflaps and there is still some minor scrubbing on the inner guard on full lock.

I am currently running a 2" Ironman suspension lift and a 2" body lift from Zordo.

285/75/16 Maxxis Bighorns @ +20 offset; under a 2" suspension lift, 2" body lift with Snake Racing UCA's (not wound past 2" lift).

Inner front guard needed some massaging to alleviate some scrubbing, need some cosmetic grinder surgery to do it better.

i didnt notice to much power difference with the 33's on. you need a two inch body lift minimum to fit them though otherwise they will scrub.

If that's all you want to do. Don't bother with 33's they'll scrub when you drive over every curb and probably catch on your bull bar and you may even end up breaking something pretty badly.

But to answer your question, you'll need a 4-5" suspension lift. Which will likely set you back a fair bit more than $5k and will involve a lot more work than doing a 2" suspension and 2" body lift.

Is a body lift legal in rockhampton qld? And how would that effect warrenty and such because i know suspension lift only voids it on parts i change, and the cv's.

How many body blocks are required for body lift? You dont find the car feel like it wants to roll everywhere?

joshman
24-01-2013, 01:51 PM
There's plenty of threads around here about the legalities of body lifts, and how to go about organizing them. Our best best is to find ZORDO and quiz him about it. He's our resident suspension guru, and a damn fine bloke.

But yes, body lifts upto 50mm are legal in QLD, and only upto 50mm of suspension lift is legal also. So to fit 33's, you want a 2" suspension, and 2" body lift. Minimum. And then you'll need to chop out the inner guards at the front of your rear wheel well, and at the back of the front wheel well to make room for the flex with the bigger rubber.

ben85
25-01-2013, 08:16 AM
you should be able to get the bodylift up in qld.

if not you should still be able to fit 285's, just stick to a +20 offset rim or even the stock rims which are +40. and you might have to do a bit extra guard work.

Ive got a standard 2" suspension lift both front and rear in my Navara. It has 285/75/16 mickey thompson tyres on the factory 16X7 alloy rims. ive taken the front mud flaps off and had to cut about 2"s off the bullbar so stop the tires from hitting. I havent got any body lift, just a 2" suspension lift and with the mentioned alterations i dont get any rubbing from the tyres at all. Absolutely no bullshit, i have photos if anyone doesnt believe me

Who knows the offset of the 4 spike alloys? And if weather or not ill get some 33's on them under my ute. Got the body lift and susspension done... done the guard chop too.

Im under the impression you need a +20 offset rim but not sure what the alloys are.

Cheers in advance

ben85
28-03-2013, 11:42 AM
you mean the stock alloys?
they're +40

285's will fit no worries, but the rims are only 7in wide.
some guys are running them, but 8in is recommended.

dan1104
28-03-2013, 02:15 PM
Yeah the stock alloys. Ahh I didnt realise they were only 7 wide. Bummer. Guess ill get some steelies then.

so i have just fitted up a set of 33s.

federal couragia mts 285/75/16s on csa 16x8 0 offset.
the tyres actually measure about 32.8 inchs.

im running 2 inch body and 2 inch suspension lift.
the guards measure 810mm to the bottom of the 16 inch rim.

i havent trimmed the front guards at all.
there's about 10mm clearance on full lock, it may slightly touch on full lock when hitting a big bump or full flex, ill have to wait an see on that.
i dont think ill be on full lock in those situations too often, after all that normally produces the awful noise coming from the steering stops.

going from 265/75's its barely noticable on take off.

thats about all the info i can think of.

I am planning to fit 33" on mine in the future 285/75/16 on 16x8 -28 offset
currently I have 32" 265/75/16 on the same rim with 2" suspension lift and
massaged the guards already - with slight rubbing on full lock however seems
my torsion bars sagged already so I am replacing them soon- I also plan to install
2" body lift for more clearance hopefully helps when the 33" comes in

reckon? even on 2"body lift? the only reason I am running -28 is to protect guards and body

it will look good, but you'll be bashing those guards in a bit more or cutting them.

mine is at the max, any bigger tyre or offset and i would need to mod the guards, im already running a bodylift.

Is it possible for someone to do a "how to" on tubbing out the inner guards?? in a way thats at least professional looking and keeps the plastic.

You wont be able to run a 285 on a -28 offset rim without getting bigger flares.
Otherwise it will hang out past the flares at least 40mm.
I tried it on mine, and found 0 offset is best.
If you going to lift the body 2", you will have PLENTY of clearance with 33" tyres.

just an update, after a decent offroad trip the last few days i have found that both front and rear tyres do infact scrub on flex.

i will be trimming a small piece of the rear flares at the front of the wheel arch.
and the tipical spot on the front guards.

i have an 06 zd30 d22 navara with a 2" tough dog suspension lift and a 2" zordo body lift.

i put 33's on the other day. summit mud dogs 285/75/16x8 +20 offset. tyres stick out of the guards probably 40mm, they also rubbed on the standard plastic front bumper, i upgraded to an xrox bumper so they dont hit anymore.

had to grind the front guards with an angle grinder and smash em in with a hammer. easy job, but if your not confident most mechanics will do this if you fairly cheap.

Its going to stick out way to much mate, change your wheels to +20 in 16x8 and it will only stick out slightly

on -28 rims its going to be hard even with a bodylift. will stick out heaps and will need lots and lots of grinding!

im running 0 offset rims, i would not go any more negative. +20 or 0 are the best options.

no worries.

Suspension provides no increase in clearance because the wheel still travels between the bump stops.

May have to trim guards near cab if you get 0 or -ve offset rims.

Was chating to the 80 series guys at work (there's a few). One has just got 305/70r16s on his cruiser. Wondering if these would fit on my22. What oddest and width rims would I need. Have 2" body and soon will gave 2" suspension. Would look killer with a wide tyre

ben85
10-08-2013, 12:27 PM
don't know of anyone running them... but stick to a +20 offset and you should be right with a slight bit of trimming... or go 0 offset and trim more... but i wouldn't recommend that.
there was someone one here running mudzillas 33x13.5s on -26 offset... not sure if he even had a bodylift but he must have done a fair bit of trimming or there would be a lot of guard scrub.

10-08-2013, 01:53 PM
285's fit on the stock P40 offset to

so if anyone finds wheels in that sort of offset range the odds are 33"s will fit with minimal trimming.

Right?

That's right. The bullbar is attached to the chassis. It will affect the gap between the bar and the body though, unless you redrill the mounts to raise it, otherwise it will be whatever the height of the body lift is away from the body...

big zetor
10-03-2014, 07:21 AM
I wouldnt worry about the rear it's the same as the titan the front diff wouldn't last the yanks bust them all the time that's why they titan swap em. nathand broke 2 just with 33's so that's got to tell you something, you would need new offset wheels to stop chassis rub and also a guard chop lot's of pain and heart ache. but good luck with what you do

Cobez
10-03-2014, 07:41 AM
Mass guard chop or just a little bit of a cut? Im not hell bent on 35's but if the option came up on my next set i might consider it....

big zetor
10-03-2014, 07:56 AM
i cut 25mm out of my guard so i could keep the mud flap on and my 285's miss it with 8mm to spare and also have chassis rub at full lock aswell and that's with +20 offset wheels, if i had my time again i would of got wheels between 0 to -10 offset to get them further away from the chassis.

Cobez
10-03-2014, 08:44 AM
Yeah im running 285's with zero scrubbing on +20's as well. Did a fair bit of piss farting around with the guards. Heaps of room now.

Theoretically, if i was going to go 315's, what offset would be ideal. And id obviously have to get some flares too.

big zetor
11-03-2014, 09:48 AM
zero offset would be best problem is finding a wheel you like with that offset could be hard but if that dosen't faze you then i think you can get dynamic wheels in zero offset, i had had AR polished pythons on my old d40 and they were -38 a bit too wide but looked nice had to cut 30mm out of the guard and remould the inner plastic shroud and no mud flap, but at least the tyres didn't rub on the chassis lol

Cobez
11-03-2014, 10:38 AM
My 33" spare is on a black dynamic. Im not into fancy aftermarket wheels. Sunny's style of wheel or factory, otherwise im not interested.

Hmmm, might think about it. Apart from the guard mods which are easy enough, i have to think of the other smaller things like shooting my fuel economy down a bit, its going to drive a fair bit shitter etc.

How did you go with that stuff?

Can't comment on the wobble but I can tell u that they will hang out and scub like all shit on that offset without some serious lift. I run 285/75/16s on a pos 20/8 wide 16 with a big lift mine sits at 102cm from the ground to the the bottom of the flare, and the bulge of the tyre only just hangs out but I had to do some major cutting and panel beating to make them work for me. 15s look sweet as all shit just have to question weather it would be worth the hassle. Not trying to talk u out of it maybe hit psyco up on here as I sure he runs that offset without 33s or in 15s but. Should still give u some inside as to how much they will hang out or could scub.if they hang out to much u could smash ya flares up under flex too if it flexes that much in the rear .thats just my 2 cents worth good luck with it

Will 33s fit on a 22 with just a 2"lift?
If so what else will need to be do e?

Guard chop.
Body lift would help.

Also depends on the rims (offset) and the brand of tyre because theyre all slightly different.

Ben's spot on the money, let your mate know they will kill the power too.

I'm bemused by some of the replies in this thread. Some people are feeding others completely wrong information, and proving themselves as fools

The only difference between a 265/75r16 and 285/75r16 is the width of the tyre, which is 20mm greater in the 285 (265mm vs 285mm).

The difference in tyre height comes down to the aspect ratio, which is the "75". The aspect ratio is the relationship of the tyre wall to the tyres sectional width and is displayed in a percentage (75% of the tyre sectional width)

So when you reference 265 or 285 you are not actually talking about the tyre height, only the tyre width.
This dimension is more critical when considering the offset of the rim and working out how proud the tyre may be to the guards, this may also give an indication whether scrubbing of the inner guard will occur.

Another kicker is that the width of a tyre does have an influence in the overall height of a tyre with this formula. A 285/75 will be marginally taller than a 265/75 because of the 20mm difference between the tyre widths.

So in summary when looking at 285/75r16 this means that the tyre is 285mm wide. The aspect ratio is 75% of 285mm. Same formula applies to all tyres on any vehicle.

Here is the easiest way to work out the tyre height below, i'll use a 285/75r16 as the example.

285mm x 75% = 213.75mm (x2 for top and bottom walls) = 427.5mm.
427.5mm + 406.4mm (16" rim in mm is, 16 x 25.4mm = 406.4mm)
therefor 427.5 + 406.4 = 833.9mm
to convert back to inches go,
833.9mm / 25.4 (1") = 32.83", round up to a 33" tyre - easy peasy!

I cannot make this any easier to understand.

Please stop feeding people rubbish if you don't know what you're on about

That comes down to the tyre brand and type too. Different manufacturers have different tread depths, so while the tyre carcass is the same size, more tread means more overall diameter. The joys of modifying stuff hahaha
