    I have about 2" of lift and have 255/85/16's which are about 33.3x10.5. I have some rubbing at full lock on the frame and in the inner fender at full compression (which is not easy to do). You will have to do some trimming/pinch weld pounding to fit 33's but not much at all.

    Oh and welcome to TW, love the screen name lol.

    I have the 5100's set at 2.5 and a 2" AAL. I am running 32x11.50x15 mud tires. I had to trim and do the pinch weld mod.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I have 5100's with Eibach springs with about 3" of lift and 5150's with an AAL in the back and I'm going with 33"/12.5"x15" in a month or so. I just did a test fit with my buddy's 33"/12.5x18" Toyo open country's and the fit was nice I had very little rubbing at full lock and I'm sure I will have less or even none with my rims because I will have a more aggressive back spacing.

    It really just comes down to what tires (not all tires, even in the same size, are the same width and height), and what wheels (different wheels have different backspacing and widths).

    Easiest thing to do is to go visit a tire store and tell them what you want to do and see if they'll try a few different things with you to see if it'll work. Doesn't hurt to give the worker a bit of a tip so they dont feel like they're wasting their time.
