Tire Fitment 2003 1500 4x4 QuadCab

Hi all:

I am looking to upgrade from the Stock Goodyear GSA's that came with the Truck. I do not have a lift on this truck. - I was looking at the Super Swamper TrXus MT 33x12.5R17LT. Will this work with a 17x8 rim with 4.5" backspacing, with minimal rub (or easy mod) (BTW, Interco's website recommends a 17x8.5" rim)

Thanks!

I have read here that 33 by 12.50's fit on the stock rims and don't rub at all with no lift. I plan on doing 315/70R17's this spring. They are 34" and I've been told here they don't rub. You should be all set.

it will fit but i would look into going with 17 by 9s 8.5 are alittle too thin for a 12.50. tire comes to far in on tire would look weird and risk hurting the tire. just my .02. very good tire

Maybe the 17's are a little differnt. I have always run a 12.5 inch tire on 15x8 rims on my Ramcharger. Currently I have 35x12.5 BFG MT's and I do some pretty serious four wheeling with it. I have never had any issues with the tire wanting to come off the rim. Just a thought.

didn't say it woulod fall off but it would wear out or wear out the beads since it was made for a real wide rim.

My experience has been never to run wider than an 8" rim with a 12.5 wide tire, otherwise I've had the bead come off the rim when doing serious wheelin' when aired down. On my '95 Wrangler with 33X12.5 TSL bias Swampers, I actually ran a 7.5" rim and used to air down the tires to 4 psi in the snow, never once had a problem. I have 33X12.5 radials on my moose now with the stock rims and 7500 miles on them, they're wearing great.
