Difference??

What is the difference in a 285 75r16 and a 33 10.50 16? Are they both 33ish tall, just the 10.50 wider?? Can the 10.50 run on a stock rim??

The 285's are about 11.2 inches wide, that's about the only difference.

I want a 33 ish inch tire that is wider than the 285s I had before. I want that "bulge" look to the side wall, but dont want to have to go to a 35 inch tire to get it.

305/70R16 would be a good size for ya... It's basically a 33x12.50R16.

That's about right but if you have stock wheels that may be a bit wide. You really need at least an 8" rim for a tire that wide.

Did you wear out those BFGs already Shane? It seems like only a few months ago you were showing off the new tires.

I may just go that route. Wider, but not tall enuff to rub the leafs like my 35s do. Thanks for the response!!
