You should be good. I'm running 31s with just the lift spindles and no trimming, and I have no kind of rub whatsoever. Just make sure you get wheels with the right backspacing if you haven't already.

Edit: I'm not so sure about the width though. Diameter you're good, but again, get the right wheels and you should be good width wise too

I planned on using my stock ones too, but the spindles change the backspacing you need and if you don't get new rims, the bigger tires will rub on your frame...

Probably. I think the backspacing you need is like 3.75 or 4.75. I can't remember right off my head. But just search for it and it'll come up. 15x10s would work just as long as you make sure they have the right stats. I thought about getting em but that's just too wide for me. lol
