I have a BL lift and cranked my T bars a few turns and I run 33 12.5s and they rub a small amount on the sway bar

If you want a little bit more room you can get a 1" body lift. Cheap and don't have to modify anything. I sent you a PM about it.

Its because of the stock wheels backspacing. I had the same issues when I was stock on 33x12.5. I had no rubbing anywhere else.

33x10.50x15, as stated, will fit no problem. 12.50s will rub, and will require a bl, partly due to the 4.5 inch backspacing of the alcoa rims. Your alcoas are also 15x7, you can fit 12.50s on it, but it's pushing it.

32x11.50s look more in proportion, IMO.
