youd need to probably run spacers.

What size wheel, what lifts are you running.

a 4inch lift will do fine with 33s, but because theyre so wide, theyre going to rub on tight turns. so going up more wont solve your problem. get wheel spacers and it will make the wheels stick out more, allowing you to run a wider tire.

yeah.. the only way to fix that is a different backspacing on the rims or some spacers...

check craigslist. Ebay. Warning for you though. Spacers are very unsafe.

They can be, and think about it. You are bolting on a piece of metal on the axle that isnt supposed to be there. They are known to come loose and fall off. Ive head some horror stories.

DON'T USE SPACERS
I DID AND HAD A 37" TIRE/WHEEL FLY OFF AND NEARLY KILL SOMEONE (TOTALLED THEIR CAR)

I bought reverse cut wheels. Literally they are drilled from the other side so they have a positive offset rather than a backspacing. So if you had 3" backspacing you'd now have a FOOT more width from reverse cutting them (6" on either side, get it?)

My wheels were $50 each for a 15x10 direct from 4 Wheel Parts Wherehouse in Denver.

Wheel spacers arent going to help you out any. Its gonna all depend on the offset and width of the wheel. If you double lift your rig im sure they wouldnt rub.
