6 mo review on Atturo Trailblade XT tires 33x12.50-20

Atturo Trailblade XT 6month review: So, Ive logged around 6000 miles on these so far. At least 200-300 offroad in mixed conditions. Mostly Arizona desert and mountain where they have been performing flawlessly. I even had a chance to drive up to Flagstaff last month on a day where they got 30+" of snow and really had a blast with the tires and was impressed to say the least. Road noise is acceptable for daily use. Ive had a BFG Mud tire before, way loud. These are on par with similar and less aggressive AT tires ive had. Slight low speed hum, but very acceptable at speed/highway/etc. Aired up properly for the road, they are wearing evenly and still provide a good feel while cornering even though much larger than stock 265/50-20 vs 33x12.50-20. Based on tread wear after my 1st rotation of them, I expect them to easily be 35,000+ mile tires. Would be more, but I do tear in to em quite a bit in the mountains. I get compliments and questions all the time, based on how beautiful/aggressive the tread and sidewall are. ‪#‎AtturoTires‬ ‪#‎BlackRhinoWheels‬

I like your setup. Love the wheels. I'm running 32s and they fill the wheel well nicely. What kind of lift do you have to run 33s?

running 33s is largely about wheel offset rather than lift. Although, of course a lift is necessary. I started with just the 2.5 RRO lift and the tires fit perfectly (on a +31 offset wheel). No trimming needed, no pinch weld mod, etc. Higher or lower offsets will more easily rub with this tire. I added another 1/2" up front when I moved to a Bilstein 5100 adjustable shock and that actually caused a slight rub at the pinch. Seems strange right? Well, as it came up that lil bit more, the taper of the wheel well (and where teh felt pokes out around the pinch) came up to just the point of where the tire comes the closest. So, I did make a lil adjustment to the felt there.

Thanks for the reply. I will be taking my GC to get the 5100s installed today. I don't like the slanted look.

Your jeep looks great! White is awesome on this things. Thank you for trailblazing the way to properly fitting large tires on these wk2's. I spent the last week reading through your posts and other posts and comparing rim sizes and offsets trying to find a wheel that I liked that would also work properly. I learned how critical the offset was on these but had a heck of a time trying to decipher the numbers. I kept reading about the offset but often times, other rim dimensions such as width was missing from the posts I was reading.

Might help others to know the rim width changes the needed offset. I finally was able to use a wheel offset chart to figure out the final details.

For example a +31 offset on a 20x8.5 would equate to around a +24 on a 20x9 or +18 on a 20x9.5, etc.

Good info. I think ill be more in depth on future posts, although even when I do I see the same questions pop up over and over. so many good tools online for everyone to use online to figure proper offsets and backspacing....I had hoped that giving a baseline to work from would help

hows this for helpful... Knowing that 8.5"width at +31 is ideal fitment, you can quickly work calculations on other widths

Yep, helped big time man. I figured out my set up based on your numbers and figured out the rest with more research and that chart. Figured there was a couple mm fudge factor with my "9's +20 offset" and ended up with a great fit.

Saved me from guessing and gambling.

Hello, Great looking rig! I went to your site and saw that you have the Gobi roof rack/tray like in your signature.
Im wondering what brand and model the one in the attachments is? That would fit my application nicely.
