Depends on the specs on your wheels and how you drive your rig. If you wheels are the same specs are OEM and you never leave the pavement, then no you most likely won't have to trim anything and will probably only rub on occasion like take a sharp corner hard or hitting a bump hard.

If you wheel at all the tire will stuff right up to the same spot as it did when you had no lift so it will rub on a lot of stuff.

All in all, for a 33" tire, the 255's rub very little even at full stuff. I have only had to do minor trimming for the most part.

You're going to have to do some trimming then. haha Pretty sure you'll have to remove the mudflaps no matter what, but I'm not 100% on that.
