    No, the tires are too tall and too wide! use the search function at the top right and it will give you millions of answers.

    If you were to get the front to 3'' you would probably will be able to fit them. You would probably be able to fit them now with some minor trimming.

    But the main issue would be that the tires would be too wide. You would probably be able to fit them with wheeler spacers (cheaper) or rims with proper backspacing like around 3.5" (expensive).

    I have 33X12.5X15 on Eagle alloy 15X8 w/ 3.5'' BS with no rubbing.

    i think maybe a 1'' body lift wont hurt. its just to clear the rub.

    the easiest thing to do and cheapest is to get some top plate spacers to gain a inch of lift up front. Get you to 3"... then you should be able to clear them with the proper wheels, with 4" backspacing. you still may have to trim some.
