Biggest would be a 33 any bigger and you would have to do some trimming

I have 285/75 R16 and the only place mine rub are when I'm turning at a certain point they just barely touch the bottom corner of the bumper but is all i did was trim about an inch off the bumper and it doesn't touch it even if i hit a bump when turning.

Thats all the trimming I had to do too when I had 285s on before the lift, its not bad at all and the 33s will look good

I fit 33x12.50 and the only time they would rub was when you turning and hit a pot hole. The way I fixed it was by putting 3/4 of an inch of pipe between the bumper and the brackets. This gave plenty of room for mt's.

I put 35's, actually 315-75-16's on mine. I had to round off the bottom corner of the bumper on each side but you cant even tell. I also rub on the leaf springs when I turn too tight but it wasn't anything I couldn't deal with. I would think the rubbing would happen with any tire that was 12.5 in wide, even 33's but im not sure.
