Too small a tire?

2 1/2 spring lift + SOA.

Would 33x12.5x15 on a 15x8 rim be too small of a tire?

im running a 2in SOA with 36s and i have more then enough room to flex. With 33s you will have more then you could ever use. If you want to stick with 33s i would suggest picking up a pair of stock YJ springs.

Here is a pic of the setup your asking about. Most tire shops will recomend using a 15x8.5 wheel when using 33x12.5 tires. Looks like it wont be an issue unless your really beating up rocks.
