    Default Pic Request: Ford E150 33" on stock 15" wheels?

    Anyone running these or can link a pic?

    Trying to wrap my head around how it would look like on stock wheels.

    33" won't fit on an e150 without some serious and I mean serious trimming.

    265/75/16 is what I run with e350 springs on my e150 and I only had to cut a small corner of the front bumper plastic off so it wouldnt hit it turning.

    Default Ford Econoline Baja Grocery Getter 6" suspension lift kit

    If you running a 15" wheel you have a pre 08 van which is gong to be really hard to get 33" tires with the fenders and bumper still on it. Then you are going to need to find a E rated tire in a 15" wheel in a 33" prob not going to happen.
    Jaweezy has a 08 and newer van? that is really a 250/350 8 lug so it already sits higher then the earlier models.
    How about a pic of stock wheels and tires on a 6" lift.


    I dont have any pics of what your asking for but here is how much we had to trim this bumper to run 33" tires and it has our 6" Baja Grocery Getter lift kit.


    Good luck on your project, let us know if you need parts.

    I was actually going to give you guys a call when I get everything sorted out.

    I'm running 31 Grabber AT2s right now.

    Was thinking about your 4" Ocotillo lift and using 33s.

    Is 31 the max tire size you would recommend for the 4" lift?

    Is moving to a 16" 5 lug wheel feasible/safe?

    Also, how much more weight does your 4" lift add over the stock suspension?

    As long as you have the same 5 holes on 5.5" you could use any other rim size (check back-space). This was my e-150 on Moog 880 springs and HD rear leaves. 265/70/17 wheels

    How many inches of lift did the springs net you?

    May be a couple over the worn out springs. It should be 1 or 1.5” over a spring in decent shape. I was able to correct the camber with adjustable cams. Alignment is the may issue with lifting to the point that you need something like the Weldtec kit.

    Damn, it seems like a 33" would fit very nicely with a 4" lift then.

    Indeed they do. This is Weldtec's Ocotillo Cruiser Kit with 285/75s on the stock 16" wheels.

    FROADER,

    Did your van start as an E350?
    Could you measure from the center of your hubs straight up to the fender for me?
    Iím trying to figure out how much lift my van has.

    Thanks a lot if you can.
