Yes that would provide plenty of clearance. You won't have any problems from the tires (besides power loss) but idk what 4 inch lift you are or are planning on running

That is a 35" tire not 33". You will need to install a body lift and make adjustments to your bump stops to effectively run that tire.

315/75/16 Mtrk's on stock Moabs with a 1.25 spacer. Terraflex 4 inch no BL..Yes it does sometimes still scrape a bit but I really have to be stuffing it. It did make a lot of noise before I cut the flares and trimmed inside the Wheel wells a bit. When it had the 33's on it I had no noise. A bit of cutting was worth the time to not have to do any bump stops or body lift.

What gears you running? What 33" did you have? Also what all did you cut and trim? Got pics of your work?

Running 305/70r16 Toyo mt's with 1.25" spacers, 2" budget boost and a 1.25" body lift. Gone on a few wheeling trips and haven't hit yet.

That's still a 33. 315 is a 35.

315 is the width. Not height. The 70 is a section of the height.

Yes, I know. But a 315/75/16 is a 35 inch tire.
