Also be sure to add bumpstops. You will likely need to add a 1"-1.25" BL or trim your flares up about 1" to avoid rubbing offroad.

The OP could also look into 11.5" tires or the metric equivalent (although I don't think they make those in a 15" rim).

There are a few tire manufactures that sell a 33x10.5x15 tire. BFG KM2 mud tires and their all terrain tires come in that size.
That may keep you withing your flares with the stock wheels and still be able to run 33's.

|2004Columbia||Thanks for the replies guys. The stock wheels are 15x7 and are painted graphite gray as part of the columbia edition as are the fender flares so that's why I don't want to change either. The fender flares are not the larger size like the Rubicon. I am not married to 33x12.5x15, I see some tires available in a 32x11.5x15. Right now I have 225/75/15. I'll have to measure how much room I have with them. I just hate the look where the tires stick out further than the fender flares.|

|Water Dog||12.5" tires on a 7" wide rim is pushing it. You would be better off with 8" wide wheels for that size tire.|

Also depends on the whether or not you are running stock or aftermarket wheels, and the backspacing on the wheels you are running. Also depends on your flares. If your Columbia Edition has the Sahara/Rubi width flares (4.5"), it gives you an extra inch.
Here's my old 33x12.5x15 tires on a 15x8 aftermarket wheel with 3.75 backspacing with standard TJ flares (3.5").

33" tire fitment
Have a 2004 Columbia which has the 15x7 aluminum wheels. I'm going to put a budget boost on it and am interested in getting a 33x12.5x15 inch tire. My question is this ... will that size tire on that rim make the tire stick out further than the factory fender flares? Thanks in advance.
