Hey guys just sorting some bigger tyres for my safari, has a 2" suspension lift so want to run 33s  and am looking at 33x12.5x15. With a 15x8 rim. Will this work or am i better of going for a 15x10 rim which i can also pick up if need be. ?? Just worried about possible guard rub. Bigger tyres are all new to me so any help be awesome cheers.

Just be careful going up in size, I went from standard Toyota Hilux 17" rim to a 31x10.5 on a 15" rim in mud tyres and the WOF fella got all technical around only allowing 5% increase in tyre size... So much so he took all four tyres off to measure them independently... I was 2mm under the 5% mark... 

Guess it comes down to the WOF place you go as I haven't encountered it before but just so you're aware.

It will also change your speedo a touch, not drastically but a could be a difference between a 5km over speeding ticket and 10kmh over ticket  Grin

Have a read of this as well.... http://www.4wdingaustralia.com/4x4/fitting-bigger-tyres-to-your-4wd/

Bad luck with the tyer measuring for wof.My old patrol has 16" tyers 70s,with factory rims.I stayed with the 70s to keep the rolling circumference down,and just went wider, 305 was the wideist i could get with the 70s in muddies
Plenty of tread on the road or tracks and still get a easy cof every 6 months.
Good luck with your new tyers. Wink

I'm running 285/70/16 muddies on factory alloys (those triangle shaped ones) on my LWB safari and with a 2" lift,  touch on the rear mudflaps with axle articulation (up inside wheel arch). For gnarly work I would expect they are too big for the guards to survive for too long Shocked

No issues with any other place, even VTNZ didn't care but this place did  Grin

Presumably you can go bigger than +5% if you get certified?  How much would that cost? cheers

keep in mind that once certed your stuck with that tire size.
to change tire size again, including going back to stock, requires a recert.
