Will 33's fit on a stock height ex?

I am considering dropping down to 33's from 35's and 8" lift. Can I go to stock and fit 33 or do I need a small lift?

thks.

4"

If you take it off road and torq it at all 33's with stock suspension will rub especially a knoby or wide set of 33"s they will almost surely rub so if you are going with a mud tire or anything with any width a 4" up front 2" in the rear lift will keep you from rubbing even if you get'r crossed up wheel'n every now and then.

Backspacing and side lugs on the tires are the most critical.......33's can rub but if the truck is set up with the right wheel/tire combo they wont...

I ran both 295/75/16 BFG all terrains on both the X and SRW with no rubbing.

Unless the rim is really offset a 33 shouldn't rub. Right now the X has 265 Ravo's and when they were new they rubbed a little. The rims are Centerlines and have more of an offset than the American Racing.

Well I am running some 50 series low profile Toyo mudders/33's on some 20's and I had the shop set me up on the stock height first and they rubbed! I wanted 24's (rims) but if you are going to tow anything and want to stick with a mudder your limited to tires that are thin walled/not rated for towing(very few plies maybe 1 or none with steel belting) and then you take the risk of trashing your tires and rims towing anything with size or weight to it.

Most shops can tell you if the tire will rub on stock just by looking it up on their computer.

I have 305/70/16 BFG AllTerrain's on stock suspension, mounted to MickyThompson classics. No rub and plenty of room left over. Will be switching to 315/75/16 Shortly. It's an 02 ex
