You should get them because of the lift height not the tire size. The backspacing of the wheel will get it away from the uca.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

New UCA's are a good idea for lifts over 2.5", as to correct the alignment.

i plan on getting 285/70/17 with xd revolvers(Offset: -12 Backspace: 4.53), on a 2.5 inch lift.... the rims should make it so that there's minor rubbing if any.

Correct. You will rub some other stuff though. You will probably have to trim some plastic and do cab mount chop.

If you wanna do it right, get uca's and a cab mount chop. If you wanna half ass it, don't get uca's, have shitty alignment and rubbing on your cab mounts.
