Help me pick tires

Ok here's the deal. I had my mind set on 33x13.5 ltbs. However tell me what you guys think. When I go back to school the end of august I will hardly ever drive. My bodylift is on its way right now. So I'll have a bodylift and small torsion crank. I have a 98 with the 3.0. I am sorta worried about my 8" wide rims mounting 13.5's on them. Should i? I don't really wanna buy rims. My other options are:

33x12.5 TSL

33x13.5 Mudd Grapplers but good lord are they expensive.

33x12.50 Boggers same deal as the grapplers

Anyone other ideas guys? I want a real mud tire for looks and performance in the pits around here when I need them.

3" BL, Fully locked hubs, 33" Thornbirds, 15x8 DC-1's, 4.10 Gears, Pioneer System, Delta Box, Flowmaster 40, Bright Headlights

if you are hardly ever going to drive then boggers but the more you drive it on the street the faster youll be buying new ones.

I love my BFG Mud Terrains They perform great
they do good on rocks, aight in sand, and good in the mud
They ride smooth on the street with little noise at all
They are good for the weekender or every now and then offroader and many get 30-40,000 miles outa them if not more.
So far i love mine and man do they grip good.
Go with ltb's or boggers if u do not drive on the street much to none at all
They will grip way better in mud but on the street u will get a horrible ride and no miles outa em before ull have to buy them again
Im happy with mine now

02 FX4 (Lvl II) 4.10 gears,torsen l/s,bilstein shocks,3" bl,t-bar crank,33x13.50x15 Nitto Mud Grapplers,15x10 Eagle Alloy 185 series wheels,retrofitted 4300k HID projectors w/red halo's & black corners,06+ flares,line-x'd rockers
