A crazy 18year old's idea

Okay, call me a bit crazy but my rims have a 4.89BS(16x8 +10mm) and the 33's I want to put on them have a section width of 11.2inches. if I did my math right it would make the space from the mounting surface to the inside tire edge around 6inchs, COULD I get away with a 1.5inch spacer in order to pull this off with full turn?

That should fit and turn fine with 33s but would likely rub a bit with 35s. Stock wheels are 6.25" bs plus the tire overhang and with 1.5" wheel spacers people often run 35x12.50s with little to no rubbing.

You shouldn't need a wheel spacer to run a 285/75R16 on a wheel that's 16x8 with a +10mm offset.

That said, if you want a little more room under there you could install a 1.5" leveling kit if you haven't already. That will eliminate any chances of rubbing in your front fenders at full steering wheel lock. A leveling kit would also give you a little more clearance in the front for all that deep cold white snow you've got there.

Glad we could help

A TeraFlex leveling kit for example, typically costs less than a new set wheel spacers.
