Default needing some help with tires

Hello all. I need a bit of help. i just purchased a 2003 ranger 4x4 for my son and want to replace the wheels and tires. The truck has a 3" body lift already installed. i fould new wheels he likes. I need to find out what size will work. I need to know if 33x12.50x15 tires mounted on 15x10 rims will fit
without any problems to the truck. both the wheels and tires will be Mickey Thompson.
Thanks

I looked at the chart and found where it said body lift and found the tire size. Do you know what size of body lift and how much trimming is needed for the wheel and tire size I wanted? 33x12.50.15 tires and 15x10 wheels

the standard body lift is 3", with that and cranking the torsion bars you should fit 33's on there for sure without trimmimg. I'm not sure about the 15x10 wheels though

ok. I guess i should just crank the bars until they clear enough? Thanks for your input. i will see if anyone else post comments to see what they say about the wheels.

make sure you get wheels with 4" or less backspacing that will help keep from rubbing

your likely gonna rub with a 15x10 though not positive on this maybe someone who has tried them will post. my 31x10.5 on 16x8 is a real tight fit though. * no body lift *
