AEV Pintler wheels and 33 x 12.5 x 17

I have a Teraflex leveling kit and would like to run AEV Pintler wheels and 33 x 12.5 x 17 Toyo Open Country A/T II's or maybe even Duratrac's. bottom line how far will the 12.5's stick out past the OEM fenders? I have a Sahara so the fenders are painted and I'm starting to think I might need to go with an 11.5 so I can keep the paint on my fenders.
Any input would be great!

AEV Pintler Wheels and GY Duratracs... No lift and no rubbing. The 11.5 (285/70/17) sticks out a little bit, but not much. I think the 12.5 inch tires would stick out too much but that is my opinion.

I have 33x12.50x15 DuraTracs on my sport. The tires stick out around 2 inches or so from the fenders. They don't throw rocks hardly at all atleast for me, now snow an mud is a different story, my flares get caked with them as well as my doors an the side of my top but to me it gives a much better stance an handling.

That looks great pepatrick... I think the Pintlers with 285s straddle the line nicely between tame and hardcore. Looks OEM but a little better.

I just need to find and extra $1,000 under the seats this Spring so I can afford them.
