I have a 2wd 03 f250.
If i buy 33x12.5/16 wheels will they fit on my wheel?

I dont understand how the 12.5 will work with the 7 in wide wheel?

:dunno:

I just bought the lift so i need to know!!

If your wheels are factory, then they're a 16x7. That actual rim width may not measure exactly 7 inches, but in regards to the approved rim widths listed by the manufacturer, it is a 7 inch rim. PRETTY sure a 7inch rim is not an approved width for a 12.50 tire.

It probably actually measures between 7 1/2 - 8 inches. My "16x8" Pro Comps measure about 8 3/4s, but they're considered and 8in wheel.

Good lookin truck hypersnyper. How far do your wheels stick out past the fender? I was looking at some 20 x 12 rims but wasnt sure how far they would stick out.

They stick out 5" past the fender, here is the only front shot i have so you can get an idea of what it looks like.

i run 315's on stock rims so yeah they'll fit
Never said you couldn't get them on there. It's just questionable in the safety department. Also if you have issues, your warranty could be void because you are not running an approved rim width. Look at online tires stores, or look at manufacturer websites. None show a 7 inch rim is recommended for a 315/75/R16.

Hopefully by the end of the month. If not, shortly after.
