    I dont think you can clear 33" with a 2" lift. I'm pretty sure it has to be 2.5"s or higher. You will also have to do some minor trimming on the front fenders.

    I had 285's with a 2.5" leveling kit and the height of the tire was fine , just the width- it will scrub your upper control arm , when you turn sharp , I have 265's on now. I've seen someone on here running 275's and they looked good

    Should not rum control arms if you get the rights BS, and Offset.

    I was running same set up tires w/DC-1 16x8's, and the only rubbing issues I had were with mudflaps and minor contact with plastic in and around the wheel well. Oh, and that was with a 2.25" Readylift spacer. Now have the billies set at 2.5" and clearance is perfect.

    Am I missing something? As I understand it lift has nthing to do with clearance. The tires fit the same with any or no lift. The wheels move in the same arc. Same upper ond lower points... the lift just makes the static position lower on your arms. You can still ahve the same rub issues with a lift under compression when turning. The only things that change are different rims or upper control arm... at least up front.

    Correct for the most part. A lift in combo with moving bump stops is what stops rubbing. But for most people a lift is all they need.
