Default new cragar rims

i got 5 new cragar rims and new tires i got 4 mounted and my extra spare should be on next week when the store gets them in.
5x4.75 bolt pattern
5x8 rim
33x12.50 tires
the rims have 4 inch back spacing i had to sand my calipers down a little bit to fit without scratching the back of the rim but everythings good now, i have no more rub, with the 35s id rub at full lock,i can turn these 33s all the way and have no rub whats so ever, i love it. i got turning radius back again

I just used a dremal tool and sanded where the rim was hitting I didnt have to take off to much just sanded it down then put the rim on and tightened it down and made sure it wasn't hitting anything. And the back calipers were fine, only the front 2 needed to be sanded down.

What's "moar flare"? Haha like fender flares?

And yea the 35s were to much to be honest you couldn't go in the field without rubbing every tire on the fenders, the 33s are perfect I can actually get a LIL reckless without rubbing my tires, since I put these new tires and rims on I haven't rubbed once and we have some bad roads win Wisconsin and there's no rub going in the fields. And my spare 33 with the other soft 8 is now on the back it looks way better, looks brutal haha
