What tires fit?

ok i found a Bronco for me. an 1996 EB with a 351, 80,000 miles, and is in perfect condition. it is almost too nice that i dont want to go off road with it (i need to cause i live on a farm) well anyways can i fit 33s on it without a lift. i think that 33s would look good on it but i dont want to spend money on a lift cause i dont have much. will they fit? i have heard that 32s were the biggest but then i have heard that 33 will. will it fit with the stock wheels or do need other wheels with a different backspacing? thanks

Re: What tires fit?

If you plan on pavement pounding with a few trips in the muddy deep then 33s will work. If you plan on needing the full turning radious without rubbing then go with the 32s.

Havack!

The main difference in my truck and yours is your truck is a toy and my truck is a truck!

i drive mostly on the highway so it look like 32s might be it.

Re: What tires fit?

I drive 80% highway I have 33's with a 2" lift on front and rear I have plenty of room for the mudding that I do. It does rub lock to lock but I just don't turn it lock to lock. I have a picture of before the lift and after the lift. Oh it cost me about $175 for the lift. www.webphotos.com Album name is (My 90 bronco XLT)

Hey slickerthanyou,

Where did you buy the 2" lift? Sounds like just what I'm looking and it is in my price range. On a scale of 1-5 wrenches of difficulty, what would you rate the installation?

Re: What tires fit?

I got the rancho 1-2" coils ordered from 4wheeldrive warehouse.com and the blocks I got at advanced autoparts came with the u-bolts. Took me about hour and a half to do it. Real simple I'd say on a 1-5 it would be a 2 only thing easier is changing your oil. Oh Ya- Get an alignment. Whenever you modify the suspension it messes that up too!

Cool. I get a free alignment from Firestone every 5,000 miles and I'm due for one so the timing should work out well.

Re: What tires fit?

Slickerthanyou, are those Rancho coils just stiffer coils or are they longer and softer riding coils? I know Tuff country or someone offer them but they are 33% stiffer than stock.

Re: What tires fit?

Most definitely stiffer.
Those are what I'm running as well, with a 3/4" spacer under the spring perch.
As I remember, they were the same length as stock, just heavier gauge spring.
Is that what you found <font color=blue>slickerthanyou</font color=blue>?
