I'm in prosess of buying new tires. It will go on xd monster rims with 35mm offset along with my 3"levelling kit.
Now i know the 33x12.50R18 will fit easy. Does this size not looking to wide? Should i rather go with the narrower 275/70R18?

I went with the 275 MT's because when I discussed with Les Schwab tire up here, the 33x1250's seemed too wide without spacers (concern that they would run to close to the control arms). I have 1 1/2 level kit on my front end and get no rubbing with the 275 unless I am turned to the extreme either direction. In addition, the 275 are higher load rated.

The wider 33x12.50's will look better. Youre already buying wider aftermarket wheels with less offset, so inner clearance shouldnt be an issue.

How much wider is the 12.50 than the 275? How much lower is the profile actually on the 33 compared to the 275/70?

i have the setup, xd monsters 35mm offset. they measure at 11 wide and are a tad taller than a 33(33.16). Running stock height right now and only had rubbing on the front mud flaps.

So you say to go with the 275/75R18 rather than the 33's?

33x12.50 = 33" x 12.5" on a 9" wheel

275/70 = 33.6" x 11.2" on a 9" wide wheel

Youll regret going with 275/70s on those wheels. The tundra is such a big truck the wider tires look better. Someone mentioned the 275/70's are higher load rated, which is not true, both are 10ply, E rated tires.
