If you have a 4x4 you can run 33x10.50's stock on a 15x7" wheel with stock specs.
Wheel spacers would make them rub, since you would be increasing the scrub radius on the front tires. They need to tuck into the fenders.

And if you want a bit wider tire you can go with a 33x11.50 and only have minimul rubbing on the sway bar.
