Ok I have an 89 bronco that has stock suspension and rims. I need new tires and I am debating on what I want to put on it, right now I have 31x10.5x15. The usage of this will be about %60 on and %40 off road. I pretty sure I want to go with BFG T/A KOs because they seem like a good all around tire. Now I am not sure what size I want to go with. I really don’t have any plans for a lift or changing out rims right now. Also in the not to distant future I will need to drive the bronco 1700 mi. With that being said I want some better grip for off roading, a little bit higher ride height with bigger tires, and a little meatier look. If I go with 33s I will test for rubbing areas before I purchase. What are your thoughts? I am thinking I really want 33s but don’t know if they are the best chose. Also sorry if this seems like a lot of other threads but I have searched through the forums, now I just want your guys’ opinion. Thanks

PS I have heard of 33x11.5x15 but a few places I have checked don't carry them. Also Discount Tire Company said they would not mount 33x12.5 on my rim and with my needing to travel long distance with it, are these tires out of question?

I just found out that my rims are 8in. I need to look into trimming to maybe fit 33x12.5. How much gas milage loss is knoticed? Also would I need to look into back spacing with my 8in rims?
