G'day, got a LWB GQ with factory flares 50 mm lift 32" tyres and they just touch sometimes. You could have problems with 33"

If you take the flairs off your tires will stick out and instant defect.

You can fit 33's on a 3inch lift with OEM flairs, mate has them on his, but depends on the offset of the rims. I think you could fit with 2inch but would hit on guards everywhere. My 33's hit on chassis with 6inch lift... so 2in.. Funny though, my JT's hit less than the MTR's do, JTs are 34x11.5, but recommend 9inch rim

Are you talkin of 33x12.5 or 33x10.5's?

Then again if you remove the mudflaps, and trim guards a little you can fit Q78's (36's)

My old GQ had 33 on when I first set eyes on it but the previous owner kept them. The car had a 2" suspension lift an 1" body lift. TEh OE flares had been trimmed at the bottom and the mud flaps removed to allow for full lock. Apparently had no problems.

See mid 90's OVerlander Mags for pics of white GQ with red bar work.

Our GQ has 2" lift and we have no probs with 33 X 12.5's.... except at full articulation they rub, but not a lot. Not sure what the offset on the wheels is... and we took the flaps off ad run the wider rubber flare kit. Hope this helps

Don't forget the engineering certificate that is required to make it legal.
