wrangler questions!!!!

i have a set of the nomad wheels, 15x8 with 3.75" bs. i want to get 33x12.5 wrangler mt/r kevlars.
QUESTION: with only t-bar crank and shackles what will i rub on, when will i most likely rub, and how bad will i rub?
SECOND QUESTION: who here is running the mt/r and how do you like them? i got stuck really bad yesterday in a really deep puddle and again today in marshy type land/mud. how are these in the mud? road when wet?
THIRD QUESTION: how much difference in my speedo/odometer will i see and what can i do to correct it? i will most likely be changing it twice a year for summer/winter tires..
thank you very much to all who respond!!!!!

I am running em, but I have a body lift. For a couple hundred bucks a body lift might not be a bad idea and it will save you some fenders if actually go off road. There a great tire. Great in mud, snow, dirt. Ice on the other hand is another story, but their way better then a/t's.

It should be off about 10% depending on the stock tire size

A friend of mine ran them on his ranger,and he loved them. Great traction

The tires are awesome! They are my favorite tire yet and I have been through quite a few sets. Great on the road, great off road. Very round.

That's what I was expecting. I don't think I will have any problems and if I do I will do a body lift

33's and a BL should be no problem at all with the correct BS... i dont know what it "correct" butyou shoud be fine. when wheelin in my truck its annoying more than worrysome. i want MT-r's sooooo bad. actually i just want mudds sooo bad. i know rangerboy101(i think is the name) is running 285/75/16 i tihkn there 33's and he doesnt have much of an issue. idk how
