I'm thinking about getting some 33's for my baja but I'm not sure what it will do to my drive ratios. I have a turbo charged 2332 with a 091 trans with stock gearing. I'm wondering if anyone has some 33's that I could barrow for an hour or so. I will do all the swapping and bring all the tools if needed. Thanks.

I run 33s on my fasty, stock 091 and a normally aspirated 1915. They work nice. Still has enough gear to pull on the bottom end, but nice freeway cruising speeds. I would loan you mine, but I am prepping the car for transport the first of the week because I sold it.

Darrel congrats on the sale. What brand tires and size do you have on your car. I'm looking for some ideas. I have been running 30X9.5X15 and they are way too small. Gman I got you message I will give you a call next early next week.

Drove just fine right? With 33s all around you be amazed how softer the ride is off road.

They do ride nice but I want a little smaller tire. The ones that i have on there now are 33X12.5 I will prob go with a smaller tire. Either a 32X11.5 or 33X10.5 not quite sure which I want. My problem is my rear wheels are 7" wide I believe. I wouldn't be able to put a 12.5 on it, a 11.5 might be pushing it. Any thoughts?

On my Toyota I use 33x12.50-15s on 15x7 wheels. Perfect fit.



Most Class 10 and 12 racers run 33x10.50s on 4" rims.

33x12.50s are awfully big and heavy for most buggies. They also make for some poor geometry on the front wheel bearings and steering.

7s will work fine. My current tires 33x10.50 BFG Mud Terrains are on 5.5" wide rims and work fine. My previous tires were 33x12.50 BFG AT on a 7" or 8 " rim.

7's will work perfect. the skinnier wheel will allow the tire to protect the rim from rocks and other stuff that would cause a flat. also allows you to run a bit lower pressure and not have to worry as much about blowing a bead
