I'm wondering if 33x10.5s will fit. I read another post by someone running 33x12.5s with a 2" leveling coil. How expensive/involved is that mod? What about gas mileage? I'd be running something along the lines of a BFG A/T. I'm currently getting about 17mpg (highway) on 30x9.5s on generic A/T's. Would the larger tires be better or worse on mileage? Any info would be much appreciated.
I am the one running 33x12.50 MTs with leveling coils. I love the setup. The cost was minimal, $130 for the coils and $150 for aligment and camber adjustment, a must have.
I love the setup, rides so much better. The tires clear good and rub at full lock on the radius arms and soemtimes on the inner fenders on speedbumps and what not. I would also suggest getting new shocks with the coils, I should have.
Here's the link to my site with pictures, just incase you didn't see them before.
I won't slam ya Blue because this is the most common first question most folks have here. 33s will fit stock. you may have to grind on the bumper or use spacers to move it forward if you have a 87+ model. I run 33s on my 85 F150 and have no problems. They'll rub lock to lock but that's easilly fixed by not turning it that far.

I have a 95 Bronco, and by what you're saying, with some massaging I can fit 33x12.5 tires? And can I still use the stock rims? I'm pretty decent at body work, the only thing I need to worry about is rubbing. I also dont need a huge amount of articulation so bigger bumpstops arent out of the question.
