Hey guys, i've been researcheing the s*it out of this but still am confused. I know from reading other threads and looking online that i can fit 33's on my stock 93 yota 4x4. i need new tires and want to go bigger. stock 28's right now. so if i get the new 33's will i need wheel spacers if i'm not lifting right away or getting new rims? will be lifting eventually but cannot afford both right now.

how wide are you planing on going? i have 31-10.50/15's on my truck and if i turn the wheel with the front flexed it rubs on the fender that with m/t wheels. i had 33- 10.50/15's on my old toyota and i had to cut the fenders at the bottom so they would clear this was at stock height. the truck i have now is also at stock height. so if you go 33-9.50 you might make it with out spacing or cutting anything

33s are going to look like crap on those skinny stock wheels. I'd go with 31s as well. 33s will have a profound effect on your gearing too... Acceleration will suffer big time as will gas mileage.

All stuff to think about.

ya my 31s have a deceent affect as opposed to the 235's i have as a 2nd set 31's with look 100x better than 28's, plus i follow my buddy with a lifted jeep and 35's and dont get stuck and my bfg a/t are pretty bald too. the 31's wont totaly kill your milage as opposed to 33's im getting like 18-20 with 31's my old truck with the same motor trans everything got like 12-14 on a good day? thats with 4:10's to, to run the 33's you would be better off getting some 4:56's or 4:88's

so if i lift at the same time, and get new wheels, would 1-2 inches of lift be enough to not rub the fenders with 33's? and how wide would you recomend so it doesn't look sh*tty. i like the wheel well space also.

and thanks kris, but i'm bent on 33's for some reason. good advise though. the plan will be to regear as well some time soon. and if i break enough of my IFS wheeling before i regear, maybe i'll do a SAS too haha.

zembonez what would you recommend for a width and lift height so it will not look like crap with 33's? no one around here wheels yotas so i have nothing to compare too.

1993 4x4 xtra cab, originally 4.56 gears on 31" (from factory) tires, on 15x7 rims this is unmodified, except on 15x8 rims, and 31*10.5 bfg a/t's http://www.dirtyworldoffroad.com/gallery/d/3700-2/DSCN0147.JPG~ 4inch susp lift in font, 3 in back, 15*8 rims, 31*10.5 bfg a/t's http://www.dirtyworldoffroad.com/gallery/d/3938-2/DSCN0579.JPG~ 4inch susp lift infront, 3 in back, 15*10 rims, 33*12.5 Desert Dog A/t's http://www.dirtyworldoffroad.com/gallery/d/1015-1/PICT0011.jpg~ 4inch susp lift infront, 3 in back, , 15*8 rims, 33*12.5 swampers (siped even) http://www.dirtyworldoffroad.com/gallery/d/1571-2/DSCF0068.JPG~ that might help visualize. 33's will rub the rear of the fender well, if you land hard. Also in turning due to the decreased backspacing, do not ask as I forgot (possibl 3.75")

I've seen a bunch of them lifted but I have no direct experience doing one. I don't want to give wrong advice here. Only thing I've lifted is Jeeps.

I would think it would take 3-4 inches to clear the 33s (if you are gonna wheel it) with maybe a little trimming here and there since the stock trucks seem to be able to handle 31s if they don't do any extreme wheeling.

Stock with minor clearancing you can run 33x10.50" tires.

I'd stick with 31x10.50" tires untill you can afford to up your gearing. 4.10's and 33's suck.. 4.10's and 31's is bad enough.

im currently running 4.88's with 32" street tires (33" mud tires for playing) and I love it!

You could try a 2-3" body or suspension lift to fit the 33's.
As far as gears, regearing for 33's is a real good idea, but it's not absolutely necessary. People have been running the 33's/4 cyl/4.10's/5 spd combo for decades. There's a loss in power and mpg, but many people find then can deal with it.
And there's always 32's.

i guess you could always just save yourself some time and do a sas, lift it 10, inches put 5:29's with detroit lockers in the axles, and do chromoly shafts and just run at least 35's

I had no problem at all with that combo... and I put it through a workout in sand, snow, and mud.

All the people have said so far is great advice. I'll put my 2 cents in :p i'm running 31/10.50's on stock suspension, and it looks pretty good (better than 28's). I'm planning on running 33/12.50's if i can pick up a good pair this winter. I'm also in the process of putting a 2" of lift in, just to give me some room for 33's.
For those guys talking about the gearing and what not, here.

So, I've decided to go with the 33x10.50's and am trying to figure out what lift options I have. How much height can you get with aal and bj spacers?
