I currently own a 2003 2wd Sierra that has a leveling kit. Fender height with 265/70/17 is F 37.5 R 38.25. I plan on installing these 3 inch spindles.
Will I be able to clear 33s with a -44 offset? Yes I plan on trimming but would it be major metal trimming?

-44 will be the biggest factor, not tire size. I think it will rub. Be prepared to trim things.

OK. I had 33s on 15x12's -60mm offset with around 9" lift and it rubbed my valance clean off the truck. 20s on 33s can mean anything, if they were reps they probably didn't rub. I say go for it.

I rubbed with x12 -44mm and 33x12.50 Toyos running 3” keys cranked to 2” and a 1.5” body lift. I did the NorCal mod and it cleared until full lock.

Depends on definition of minor trimming, that valance is missing quite a bit. But yes. As I said you will be trimming, they will rub.

^^^ this. My definition of “minor trimming” and a Carolina twink’s definition of “minor trimming” will be opposite of each other. You can’t believe everything custom offsets and Facebook will tell you

Your truck looks super clean. I’d hate to see you have to hack it up like that other yee yee mobile you posted just to fit -44 x12s and 33s. Remember those spindles will push your track width out Which is going to make the rubbing worse. If I were you I’d also include a 1.5 Body lift, and be prepared to run a 305/50/20 or a 305/45/22 depending on what diameter wheel you are looking at.

and please no black wheels on that truck of yours!

Honestly if this truck were mine I’d add a Zone 1.5” BL, white letter BFG A/Ts, 1.5” spacers, esky handles and cm stock mirrors and be done with it.

I wouldn't do anything to it. Looks good as it sits. Quit looking at Custom Offsets lol

I went a different route... next I’ll be doing a 3 inch body lift will the 33s look small or look good?
