Default Pic request?

Hey guys, sorry I keep asking tire questions, I'm just new to it. I've never had to get bigger tires before. I have a 2WD Tremor with a 3" BL and would like to know if 33x12.5's will fit under the truck on my 15x8's without rubbing terribly... Any pics and past experience will help me in this situation. Appreciate the help FRF!

They will more than likely fit with the 3" lift, but will be difficult for the 3.0 to turn. 32's definitely will fit and will easier on the engine. Most people when going bigger that 31's end up changing the rear gearing to get back lost power. If you like the bigger tires I would recommend 32's.

I know there are plenty of trucks here with 33's though .

I have 33x12.5 on my truck and I got them to fit with a back spaced rim and a 3" lift and they make the truck look 10000 times better I love them. But my truck has 4:10 gears. And I did notice a huge drop in gas mileage but to me it's worth it!
