Default lift kit questions please help

ok so i just got off the phone with fabtech about their 3" spindle kits. the guy told me that even with this suspension lift, that the biggest tired i could use would be 32x11.5r15. he told me that 32s would be pushing my limits. i have a 2wd 03 reg cab edge. i have 31x10.5r15 on there now with i believe 15x8 wheels. he also told me 15x8 was the max wheel size i could use. i want 15x10 with 33x12.5r15 BAD. has anyone put a lift on their truck with 33s and had any problems? the guy told me the rubbing would be too severe and that i would be replacing ball joints and tie rods way too often. has anyone had these problems? i dont doubt his judgement, but would like to check with you guys that have done it before. please advise. please include pics if possible of your truck.

just be careful man, spindles have their limits, especially with a 15x10.

33x12.50 is probably the most common wheel size for a ranger edge with a 3" spindle lift.
