    Right now I have 32x11.50-15, 10" wide rims and 3" body lift. It rubs a tiny bit when turning and slightly compressed. I would like to put 33x12.5. Will Bilstein 5100 leveling struts allow this to happen?

    33s will barely fit and still likely rub... you would want a full 3" of suspension lift to keep the sidewalls aways from the frame and stock UCA...

    although, if running 15s, you likely have 3.75" backspace so you might actually fit...

    A guy I work with has 33x12.50r15s with a 3 inch body lift and a spacer lift. He has a 2000 extended cab.

    He has no rubbing at all, his wheels do stick out a pretty good bit. The 15 inch wheels do make a difference because of the backspacing.

    Do you know what size spacer he has?

    The tires already stick out a good bit, but i kinda like it like that. To me it looks pretty cool right now, but I need new tires and 33's do not cost that much more. I wonder if it would be overkill with even bigger tires. This is not for offroad use, "Mall crawler" as they say. Maybe some very light trails once or twice a year.

    Any more information would be greatly appreciated.
