Question How To 33s on Canyon rims & 2" Lift

can I keep the 2" spring lift I just installed, and my factory rims, 'Canyons' and run 33x12.50x15's in an all terrain pattern?

I have been told, yes, with extra wide fender flares and spacers of 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" and NOT use sway bar discos.

And I've been told no, not without adding 1" spacers to the springs. And I've benn told, no problem to run 33s with proper offset rims, and NO lift, as long as you don't plan to disconnect the sway bar.

What I'd like to do is run the 33's with spacers, with discos, with big flares, and no more than the 2" lift.

Anyone know if this will work, and if not, where will be the point of contact of 33s????

you will probably have to put some washers behind the steering stops to run 12.5" wide tires with factory rims even with spacers. on the road 33" tires will be fine but if you plan to go offroad they will rub on the bottom of the fenders.

I have 2in spacers and 33's, and 6in Bushwacker pocket flares, there is no rubbing on or offroad. I have the 33's on 15x8 rims
