    Smile 33in tires and 20in rims. Anyone else running these?

    Hey everyone,

    I know I posted before but the time is coming closer to buy tires and I am really trying to figure out what to get.

    I bought 20x9 ultra wheels gauntlet rims. I really like the look of the 20inch rims.

    Now here comes the biggest issue. TIRES!

    Any idea what type of tires to go with or sizes. to help out, I do a lot of city/highway driving but like to go off road once in a while.

    I want to go with a 33x12.5 but will it fit without rubbing? I have a 2in leveling kit from pro comp and a 3in body lift. So I don't think they will unless it hits the control arm (from what I saw from other posts).

    Any suggestions or comments?

    Update: I still haven't decided on which size to get. With gas prices going up I think I might just run a 275/55r20 tire now so I can keep the gas milage close to stock as I can. Anyone have a opinion? or an option I can get like a programmer or something to help keep the milage close...
