15x8s all you need.. with the right backspacing..

i run 33x12.5 on 15x8 rims with 3.75 backspacing.. 3.5-4 inches of lift and no rubbing

That's the magic tire width point where you really should be running 15x10 wheels. I strongly prefer 15x8 wheels for my 35x12.50 tires but that's as wide of a tire as I'd go on my present wheel.

Agreed...I'd recommend a 9" or 10" for 13.5" wide tires.
