Rubbing!?

I have a 2wd 2001 xlt and a 3" lift on it. Would i be able to fit 33x12.5 without rubbing?

Not sure about 2WD but my 4WD 4” SuperLift, 33” on 4” BS rub when the wheels are turned sharp.
Everyday driving is OK.

32x11.5s aren’t too bad, all depends on your truck, actual ride height, suspension, the look you want.
Find a friend with a set somewhere and put them on your truck, then you will know; try not to mark them up.

Test fitted them! And they fit without rubbing! just goes to show that tire fitment is a total crap chute with suspension modification
