The 1989 and earlier must be different than the 1990-91 first gens Because
33s will not fit without trimming and hammering the body. That is if you want to turn the wheels with out catching the floorboard and would like your your rear suspension to flex.

I do not consider the tires to fit if they only don't hit the fenders when driving down a flat road with the wheels straight.

Bigpoppa runs 34x10.50's but he's running about 5" suspension and 3" body lift as I recall.

Can anyone answer the question will a 265/75-16 BF Mud T/A on a stock wheel fit a second generation Passport with a 3" lift with no trimming? What it I used spacers? If not on a stock wheel what size wheel/offset combo should I look for? A local guy has these tires on Craigslist practically for free.

I installed 265/75/16 BF KM2 tires on my 1992 Pickup (same as rodeo) with no lift on stock 16" snowflake wheels. They don't rub anywhere even at full flex - no trimming.

I dont think there's a problem on 97 and earlier trucks, but the second generations appear to be the problem.

I don't know how much traffic this sub-forum gets so I also posted this as a new topic:

I know that the chart says, "yes," but can I really run 33x1050s on a Gen I Trooper with no rubbing even at full flex?

I measured and the tires will fit in the wheel wells front and back. I am not too worried about power or speed otherwise I wouldn't own a Trooper II in the first place.

What does worry me is wheel-travel and rubbing when driving offroad. I think the back should be fine, but the front looks like it might be tight. So, with the steering at full lock and the LCA on the bump stop, do 33x1050s rub?

Also, what size rim (width and backspacing) are folks using for this tire size?

Thanks in advance.

Please add the Axiom information to the chart:

235/75-17 - no lift, no trimming (31" tire); this is the largest tire that can fit without trimming;

255/75-17 - 4" lift, lots of trimming (plastic and metal) (32.5" tire); anything larger would require a body lift.

Maybe make a note on the first gen Rodeo part that a Passport will not fit the same size tires as the rodeo in the front and back due to the fender flares without trimming them.

Well, if it's any constilation (consolation), I don't have a lift on my '91 Amigo and I'm running 33x12.50R15 mud terrains on my factory Snow flakes and just had to remove the rubber/plastic bumper side covers, cut along the straight edge under the marker light and cut that stuff in front of the tire and trim back the fender towards the cab. She doesn't rub, even when I'm climbing hills and off roading, unless I flex her all the way. (I cut the bump stops so now if I bottom her out she rubs) but if you leave the bump stops normal, you won't have any rub. I drive daily with them 33's on 'er.

So we could add that to the chart if anyone is interested.

And you will see what I'm talking about. The rear panels were cut ONLY because there was just sooo much rust eating away at it. So I cut the rust off. xD

Anyone ever try a 255/70/17 on an Axiom? May have a decent lead on a great used set, just not sure they'll fit.

I doubt it will work without cutting. My guess is that it might work so-so on pavement, but it will heavily rub the wheel wells when the front tires articulate on the trails, especially in turns.

So before I pull the trigger I just want to make sure I have this right. I know offset makes a difference but, I want to do a 3" Independent 4x4 rear lift, crank the t-bars and use 265-75-16 on my factory 1999 Honda Passport wheels (16x7). Please give me some input. I've got no problem pounding the inner liner but, do not want to trim the fenders. I know I can probably us 265-70-16 but the tires are'nt as readily avaialble as the 75's.
