2011 Leveling shocks or not?
I got my winter tires put on my 17'' steel rims for the winter, and a couple days ago my buddy wrote his truck off but saved the rubber that he just purchased. He gave them to me for $200 bucks for the set. The rubber are 33x12.5x20. I got the tire shop to throw them on my stock rims just to see if they will fit or not.
I tried last night for a bit to see if I could get the tires on the truck but the mounting point I was using got in the way of the tire. I'm sure they must be to wide for the truck? I searched for a bit for some people with a 33x12.5x20 on their trucks and some say they fit without a leveling kit and some say they wont fit.
If I jacked up the truck in a different spot so the jack was not in the way when I try to slid the tire on will it fit or not?
If it doesn't, would a front leveling kit (adjustable shocks) make a difference? Or will I need to look into a different rim with a offset to work around these issues. I would rather not go and buy a new set of rims right now. I would rather see if the adjustable shocks will help.
well first thing is that the height of the tire wont stop you from putting them on, theres room to run a 33 inch tall tire stock, so installing a leveling lift, while making it look awesome, isnt necessary im not sure on the width of the tire, i run a 285 width and i have room to go up to a 305 width... i would try to mount them and then turn them lock to lock and see if they rub... as for a leveling lift i had used a spacer kit and took out my shocks form being over extended but some people will say that they dont but me, my dad, and a family friend all had the same problem... i switched to a leveling strut from skyjacker and they are working really good no complaints except for poor instructions.... but this is just one mans opinion lol hope it helps
