yes 33x12.50x15's will fit fine on a 15x8 wheel....i ran that setup for almost 2 years....

if you have 3.73 gears (look at the sticky I made about stock gearing to find your stock gears), then 33's wont be bad.....if you have any higher (numerically lower) gear, then you should upgrade to 4.10's...

yea they will fit......I personally don't like the look of them on only a body lifted Ranger, but it isn't my truck (i like a little more tire to fender clearance)

you can't compare a '93 to a '03 because the '03 can crank the torsion bars to get roughly 2-3 more inches of lift in the front were as a '93 you can't.....
