15x8 on 33x13.50?

Hey guys so lately I've been talking to my tire guy and on Wednesday I will be putting 33x13.50R15 mud grapplers on 15x8 steel wheels... Is there anything wrong with that? I'll also be putting on 3" coil spring spacers. Will I be rubbing? Or will turning just be limited? Thanks guys

I run the same set up and there maybe a little rubbing while steering. You can adjust the steering stops for that. You may also have a little rubbing when you disconnect and flex out. All little things with easy repairs.

Yeah that's what I figured, I was just worried that it wouldn't even be possible to fit a 15x8 on a 13.50 haha looks like I have nothing to worry about though

I would step up to a 9" or 10" rim for the 13.50 wide tire.

Sorry. I miss read. I thought you said 12.50 not 13.50. I run a 12.50 on a 15x8 wheel. The rule of thumb on wheels and tires is that the tire shouldn't be much more than 4" wider than the wheel.
