Noob questions about 33"s on stock 15x7 rims, with 2.5" lift

hey guys, sorry, i'm new to tire/wheel sizing, and i leave for a road trip on Tuesday so am in a rush to figure this out.

i just had a 2.5"-3" suspension lift installed on my '99 4WD Xtra cab (awesome toytec kit) and it makes my 31" tires look like mini-donuts. i'm looking to get a set of 33" BFG T/A KOs, but i have a few questions:

1) with the lift + 33" tires, my truck will be 4"+ higher than before. should i be very concerned about stability/tip-over with the higher center of gravity and tire flex? or is the difference fairly inconsequential?
2) will the 33x10.5 fit without spacers/adapters/mods?
3) should i even consider the 33x12.5? i know it's pushing the upper limit and would be a bit bulgey and wear quicker, but maybe it's worth the wider stance? but if these require spacers/adapters, it's probably not worth it.

thanks!

2) will the 33x10.5 fit without spacers/adapters/mods? You will have to do a little trimming but no spacers or adapters.


3) should i even consider the 33x12.5? i know it's pushing the upper limit and would be a bit bulgey and wear quicker, but maybe it's worth the wider stance? but if these require spacers/adapters, it's probably not worth it. No don't mount a 12.5 on a 7" wide rim 8" is the min.

i guess i have another option, which is just keep the 31"s. are you happy with your tire size? ever wish you had 33"?
