5" wheels too narrow for a 33 x 9 mickey t's or yokos?

Also 33x9 baja pros too big for the front of a 16 car? Trying to get same tire all around and would like to have 33' for the rear....

We're running the 33x9 Baja Pros on the 15x4 BTR wheels. I've never personally used 33" tires on the front of a 1600 car but have heard from others that they drastically increase wear/breakage on your front end components.

GREAT question Wtexas, I am about to buy new rims for my twelve car and I too am going to run MT baja pro 33" but i was wondering how the tire would look on a BTR 4" rim. I thought it would balloon to much for the rim. Does anyone have pic's of the tire mounted on a 4" rim ?

My plan is run them all 4 corners as well.

Gracias

I know we used to run 16x4 centerlines with 285/75/R16 (roughly 33x11.5) Goodyears on the front of our 1 car. The combo worked great and never had any problems, the tire bulge protected the rim very well.

Do they measure taller than 33 when you sqeeze 'em that much?
