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

        If I stepped up to a 33" winter tire I'd stay on 17s just run an aftermarket wheel thats more open so snow doesnt get clogged up.

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

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

                            I run 3.75 backspacing yes. I think the ones i have on now are 3.50. But 3.75 is perfect.

                              Probably going to sell my Alcola rims , pains me to do it. I love those rims so much.
                              I donít know what they would be worth either

                                    Theres a difference between backspacing and offset FYI. May want to research abit into what fits the best  with what offset and backspace on a Ranger forum or customwheeloffset.com's gallery

                                    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.

                                        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


                                          should be able to get, you'll have to go p metric sizing, 285/70R17 should have some winters avail. 32.7"

                                              General tire makes the altimax arctic in that size. I loved those tires on my car in the past.

                                                yeah supplier doesnt carry it. Theres a few brands out there just none I can get through work. Atleast at this time.
