Default 33" tires fit stock 95 F150?

So I picked up 4 33x12.50 R15 LT Mud Country (aggressive) tires today from work for free! They came off a lifted 2004? ranger and still have a some tread left. Anyone know if they will fit on my stock 95 F150 4x4 or will it need a lift?

On my 1988 and 1993 F150, my 33" BFG mud terrains fit, but there is rubbing from lock to lock steering. There was also a minor issue catching the corner of the bumper on my 93, nothing a sawzall didn't take care of.

My 1991 clears 33's with a 3 inch body lift with no problem. Might cost ya $300 and it'll look good too

Most find they fit. you may have to trim front bumper some as above says. i wouldn't do any hardcore wheeling that way, but should fit. also, if you are able to find coil spring from an extended cab long box f150 those would give you a little lift up front, maybe an inch.

Actually my buddy was able to cram some 33's under a stock 2wd 93 f150, ya they rubbed pretty good and he had to do some trimming. So if that works I'm sure you can get them under a 4x4

A buddy has 35 BFG mt's on a bronco with 1" leveling coils in front. BFG's run small and he did have to trim his bumper a little. Idk his offset or rim width but it amazingly doesn't rub very much.

I CAN clear 32x11.5x15 on a '91. They hit the fender wells if I take a hard hit. I have twisted it up and had no rub but the rims do have some off set. I would say offset rims/fender/bumper trim will do the trick. I would not put on those leveling coils or spacers as this will throw the camber way out and you will wear the outsides off instead of the inside from sagging springs. The super and crews do have a heavier rate. If you don't want to trim the body and keep the lift to a minimum you can install a 2.5" lift from tuff country or rough country. The body lifts are not the most idea lifting solution. You will have to extend shift linkages, brake lines, possibly some electrical wires. Just my .02
