Will 32x11.5s disappoint?

I have an '04 Edge 4x2. I'm putting the 3.5 Fabtech lift on it and am wondering what would be better:

1) 32x11.5s on stock Edge wheels
2) 33x12.5s on 15x8s

Cash is a bit low, but I don't want to go through all of this and have tires that look too small. It's not really for off-road, just more for looks. What do you guys think looks better? I'm worried that 32 is not enough and 33 is may too big.

33s will look better, but is it worth it to you?

the offset of the new wheels is whats going to really give it the best look. but if moneys tight then just save...

with the way fuel prices are right now, take into consideration the extra weight you will add with the bigger tires. I just put a new set of 32x11.5x15 BFG A/Ts on my 04 Level II and they look fine on my 15x7 Alcoa wheels. Every time you step up a size in tires you add more rotational weight and it makes it harder to get the vehicle moving and to stop it and puts more wear and tear on the vehicle and uses more fuel. Just some food for thought.

Go with the 33's and new 15X8 wheels, It will look the best and save money in the long run.

I highly doubt that a 32X11.5 tire will be much less overall then a 33X12.5 when ur already putting out so much for the 32s.... IMO u'll always be disappointed with the 32s with a lift.
