Tire Size Question...

I just got done installing this suspension lift:

http://www.tuffcountry.com/suspension_ford_ranger.html

I have the stock 15" wheels, and I am trying to figure out what size tires to get/what will fit. The kit recommends 31" x 10.5", but I would like to put at least 33" on there. Do you think 33's will fit? Or will it be too close to the wheel well under flex? I've also considered adding a 3" body lift, because then I could fit up to 35's if i wanted, or have 33's and plenty of clearance. Just wanted to get some of your guys opinions...

33s will fit with the 4" suspension lift only? Do you think there will be enough clearance in the wheel wells?

yes....they will be tighter than I myself like them, but they will fit....i had 33's under my 6" lift and love it, but 33's will fit under the 4" lift....

this is a friend of mines truck....he has the 4" lift and 33's in the pictures on page 5 and on the first few pages he has: 33's with 4" suspension + 3" body in some of the others....
