2.5 inch lift with 33s

Recently put a 2.5 rough country lift on my yj. The biggest tires they say you can put on are 31s. But I think that 33s would look better and fill the wheel wells more. The question I'm asking is does anyone run this setup, and do you have any problems with rubbing? I've seen the tj flares on yj and could do that if needed. Oh and it's a 92 2.5L, thank in advance.

I and yes it rubs. Not super bad unless it's loaded with ppl. Just me driving down the road, no rub. Off road lots of rub but only on the plastic fenders. And the front tires rub the leafs when turning sharp. Need wheel spacers or adjust steering stops.

Thanks Mkelchner, mine a Daily driver so I don't off road much. I don't mind it rubbing much on the plastic fender. I was worried that it would rub the metal fenders. 33s look a lot better in my opinion.

I've seen people that saved some $$ and trimmed the factory flares for more room so they don't rub on them. And yes, you can adjust the steering stops so they don't hit the springs too. I have 2.5 inch shackles now with 31's and have all sorts of room and I'm going with a 2.5 inch lift kit and 5/8 inch lift shackles to get rid of the shackle lift then I'm getting 33's.

I know this is not the answer to your question but mine has a 2.5 suspension 1/2 shackle 1'' body I'm sure my 33s would clear with just the suspension and shackle lift but for only a couple hundred bucks more you can be sure
