How big can you go without lifting?

I have an all stock '13 with the 32" tires. I'm curious how big I can go on the tires without a lift. I'm willing to cut/change the fenders to accommodate.

Thanks for any info.

You can run 33" from what I understand, but you will rub under 3/4" of lift, maybe more. ESP said his daystars with the combo (15" rim Duratrac 33") rubbed disconnected with a daystar 3/4" spacer. I think you can go to 35" if you trim your fenders? I'm personally thinking of going with a 1.5" lift on my 2dr. That way I don't have to worry as much about driveline issues. I may stay stock rubi tires cus they are cheap on Craigslist. They are ok as snow tires if you drive safe. 35's bring up lots of extra issues, driveline from lifting, ball joints, stress on u-joints, tail gait has to be reinforced, and cost.

i ran 35s for a long time with no lift and trimmed fenders. A friend of mine is running 37s with Metalcloak Overline fenders at stock ride height (no offroading of course)
