I'm new here and don't know all the technical stuff but I'm running 33/10-50 bfg all terrains and love them. I only have small lift and no rubbing. They did great in the snow.

I believe he said he didn't have money for lift do I'm gonna say he can't afford mc fenders..

OP, look into how to trim your stock fenders..

I just got my 33x12.5 tires on today. My rims are 15x8 with 3.5 back spacing. I have a 3.5" lift. They make fenders for bigger tires. MC is pretty high but I'm sure you can find a similar pair cheaper

When I was pricing my MC they were cheaper than the lift kit and that wasn't including all the stuff you need to go with a inch lift.

I was told it was a 2.5 inch lift but I'm not positive as about that. It was on there when I bought it.

Your gonna rub alot with 33's and a 2.5" lift. Your gonna need wheels with a minimum of 4.5" of backspace to run 33's also. Id stick with 32's OR put a 1" body lift on.

don't know where you live but driving with no fenders will get you a hefty fine in most places

Like I said I'm not sure what lift I have it may be 3 or 3.5. Can you tell by the picture krisbman? They are 33/10-50s also.

Cant tell, id say 3" or so. If you have 33 10.50s already id stick with that. Id still think about a 1" body lift. Give you some more flex room. Some pix of the springs, trailing arms etc would be helpful.

I've got a 2" lift with 1"BL
Run 33x12.5s with no rubbing, just make sure you have the correct bumpstops. If it matters, I have 6" fender flares. I believe stock is 3"
I don't know what back spacing I have but I know the higher the number, the closer it is to the vehicle. It's from the inner edge of the rim to the part that the lug bolts go through (sure it has a name)
