Will They Fit?

I have a 01 EX 4x4 that is stock. Will 33" BFG A/T tires mount on the stock rims and fit on the truck with out rubbing?

How much louder are these tires compaired to the firestone transforce tires?

How many miles can I expect to get out of the BFG tires? I do a lot of boal hauling! I drive alot of highway miles!

Will these hurt my MPG's at all?

Thanks

You should get alot more than 20,000 miles out of BFG AT's. I had 30,000 on my MT's when I sold the truck with a little less than 1/2 tread left (the MT's and a softer rubber than AT's)

And, the AT's are quite quiet, any additional noise over the firestones will be minimal.

I wish that there would be a way to try tires out before you buy them. I want to know if it rubs or not!! haha

Are you buying a tire that is SAE size or Metric? What is the exact size of the tire(s) you are looking at?

My Ex with 305/70-16 on 16x8 wheels with V fronts is ok but will rub on OEM mudflaps. My parents Ex with 285/75-16 on OEM 16x7 with V fronts is ok with OEM mudflaps.
