Sounds to me like your backspacing on your rims is wrong. You can get wheel spacers to move the rims outward but I don't know if that will help you. As I do not know how off your backspacing is. But most likely that is the problem. I would go to a tire/rim store like Discount Tire or someplace like that. Take your stock rims and have them measure the back spacing for you. If your 33x12.50R16 did not rub then it is not the tire size. It is the backspacing on the new rims.

The back space is 4 7/16" on a 10/16 rim, spacer will make ewen more rubbing.
The space to leaf spring in full turn, are perfect 1-1,5".
The rims and tiers that i have on are 8/16" whit 4" back pace, and 305/70-16, this tires had minor rubbing in the bak of the tires, beafore the lift, but not after.
The rims igot today are perfect for the truck i think, beacaus it will make the tires stick outside the truck and making that mean look :-)

I coud see on youre pix the other day that you hade cut some plastic in the front, same i mst do.
The biggest problem is in the back of the front tires.
Ther is rubbing realy god, maby as mutch as 3/4" the tires are pressing the plastic back.
Whas thinking about trying too make a bracket ore something to hold the plastic back, but realy dont know.
I cam also get some new shackel in the back of the leaf spring, that will giv me even 1 1/2" nore lift.
But do not know if that will bee ok after that

I am sorry I miss read your posting. I thought you meant the back tires were rubbing also. That is what made me think it was the backspacing of the new rims.

But you were saying that the back of the front tires by the wheel well is what is rubbing as well as the front of the tire. I am sorry for my confussion on this.
