MT 33x10.5W

So I'm just confirming my suspicions, but to run 33x10.5W's am I going to need to back half the car or can they fit by just narrowing the rear? I'd also prefer not to fork out the dough for a Mark Williams rear... Thanks.

What car?

On my 69 mustang I had to mini tub, notch frame rail along tire length and stretch wheel opening 4 inches to fit a 31x10.5W on a 12 inch wheel.
I had already narrowed my rear by 4 inches and I used a centered 12" wheel.
31x10.5W has 100" of roll out and is about 14" section width on a 12" wheel.
33x10.5w is bigger and I dont have any experience with that size.







Just little idea what it took to fit 31x10.5Ws and keep it legal for street style class racing with stk frame rail intact..........Ron
