I saw on here that 15" rims with 4 1/2" backspacing and 33 12.50 15 tires will fit fine no rubbing unless you go off road. so I'm asking if I get the 17" and put 33's on them do I have to lift it? I want to lift it later 2", but for now no lift and I'm pretty sure 33"s on 15x10's fit fine as long as I don't go to far off road. help if I'm wrong I need some opinions.
You'll be fine with 33" tires, height-wise, as long as you don't try to wheel it...in which case it'll probably rub. But in terms of width, you'll need the wheels to have, roughly, 4.5" of backspacing in order to run a 12.5" wide tire. Otherwise, it'll rub when you steer. If it's just a case of a little rub, you can fix it by adding washers to your steering stops...
