The grip and safety/security you get from winters are well worth it not looking like how you want for winter. Itíll look good from spring - fall anyways. Donít jeopardize you or your families life , or someone elseís family cause it doesnít look cool

I hate my winter wheel setup, Nobody makes a 33" winter for the 17s and I cant stand how sunken they are. Im debating switching back even though the grip with these tires are amazing

All I know is 3.75 back spacing is good. And stock is 4.5 and if I go 3.25 Iíll stick out 2 inches.

See I didnít think you could get a winter 33 for a 17.
But I know the stock 20s for the Silverado/Ram you can get 33 cause they come with that.
Just lower profile.

I love my winters on my truck. ****ty part about lifting and going 33x12.5 is my winters will be 30.1x10 (metric size)
Little babies! But I saw some rangers like that for winter and it doesnít look horrible. For a winter setup it wonít bother me too much.

Truck looks good with the winters on btw.

Thanks!!

I was going to ask, what offset is best for 33s? I read 3.75? What did you run.

Well I know my dads ram has the 20Ē rims and 33s and if he modifies the size at all thereís no snow tires available. Only the exact size is available

I donít think you can get a winter 33 on 17s .
Usually just factory sizes

Should upgrade your rims to the newer 20s because you can get a bigger snow tire then. Winter 33s .

Oh true.
Some guys say online that a BL cranked T bars and AAL will fit with trimming but probably better to just go 33x12.50

Its not pretty when you get up close, but eh, it's functional. And from a distance looking from the side it's barely noticeable.

Are those the only places you had to trim?
I think if I take my time I could make that cleaner.
A guy on kijiji is selling his 35s KM2 and steelies for 1000 OBO so if I can get them cheaper + BL later. Thatís the same set up as yours right?

Yikes.
I thought about getting the Super Swamper LTB in 34x10.50 cause that might fit but apparently they wear super fast

Tempted to trade it in. Chasing a stupid vibration issue after I changed a Ujoint and cant figure it out

If it runs and drives youíre good. Better to chase a problem for a while than spend 50k on a new truck

Driving to work everyday this week all highway miles (not terribly far though) Starting the truck and letting it run for 5 minutes before leaving. And having 400lbs in the box I got 13.3 mpg. So basically the same as without all that. Thatís pretty impressive I guess. Itís just bad all the time. Didnít get any worse though which is surprising.
Still cost me $76 to fill it for a weeks worth of driving

Not sure how many trails you'd be able to do in winter tbh.



Glare ice highways, yaaaaay. Slow going this morning.

I meant for summer .
Highways for me were all pavement.
Was supposed to snow 15cm Saturday then it went to 10cm now 5cm. It probably wonít snow again. I donít know why it keeps missing us

Yeah thatís kind of the same reasoning. $60 to have multiple emulators and games is more appealing than $200 for 30. Iím 3D printing some NES/SNES/ATARI cases for it.

I bought a 3D printed case and NES replica controllers off eBay super cheap

Nice. I did that for my ex as a birthday gift cause she really wanted one of those NDS systems or whatever and they were sold out instantly so I made that for her with a ton of games
