New wheels and tires fitment quesitons

Hey guys, I am thinking of getting some new wheels and tires for my 04 XLT 4x4 with my chirstmas money this year. The wheels are Granite Alloy GA8 17x8. They have 00mm of offset, and 4.44in of backspacing. The tires I am looking at are 285/70/R17 BFG All Terrian T/A's. These tires are almost 33in tall. My Ranger has quite a rake to it from the factory but I am thinking i will to a T bar crank to level it out. What do you guys think of this combo? I am hoping not to have to trim anything or something like that. I am thinking this would really make my Ranger look good and make it more functional. Thanks.

You shouldn't have to do any trimming. I know with my stock wheels and 33's I didn't have to trim anything. Just remove my mud flaps. My stock wheels have 4" backspacing I think so you may have SOME rubbing but I'm not 100% sure on that one.

but then again i was on 15x10's with 3" of backspacing haha. you will probably be fine
