I'm running 33"s with stock fenders. If you have after market or cut fenders then you might be able to fit 35"s.

I have the RC 4" lift and stock fenders and flares. And I'm running 33x12.5 tires. They clear. But there's barely any room to flex. If you wheel somewhere where you need to flex a lot, you'll need new fenders/flares, more lift, or a smaller tire than a 33"

I just installed a 4" RC myself. Currently running 31-10.50's just because they were on the wheels when I bought them. I had planned on running 33-12.50's when the 31's wear out, but I think I've decided to go with 32-11.50's for a little extra room. Not a lot of selections in that size, but a few to pick from.

If you replace your stock flares with Tj flares and trim your fenders appropriately so they fit right...you will easily clear 33" and will be able to run smallish 35" like a BFG or other brands of tires that run small for their size.
Hope this helps

If its a mall crawler that doesn't see the woods, you can run 33" tires. If you want it to not rub then it will need 31/10.50/15 for a max. Actually it will clear a 32/11.50/15 but they are so few and far between anymore that it's hard to find a good tire in that size.
So you are correct in choosing the 31's.

Have a RC 2.5 lift and put bf 32x11.5 on. They rub the leafspring if I jack the wheel all the way. I could fix the problem if I put wheel spacers but it's not bad.

BFG makes the Mud Terrains in a 33/10.50

I'm wondering how those would work? I like the 10.5" footprint vs. the 12.5".

You can fix this problem by adjusting your steering stops. You can find them down by you rotors on your spindles. Its a bolt with a jam nut...if you back it out a bit it will stop your steering a little sooner as not to rub.
Hope this helps..
