Well, I have a 2.5" RC lift to install also and I am running Hankook LT295/75x16 tires that are an actual 33"+++ installed

I can operate on the street and Light duty off-road without the lift, but

Thats by not using the stock 7.5"x17"-6" backspace wheels, things get too close and tight when you put that much larger tire, on the stocker, oh it can be done, but with REGRETS

You'll have to get adapters/spacers and some wheels with at least 4.5" backspacing or less

Good luck
