    I have that tire on 15x8, I did this so I wouldn't blow a bead when aired down. The side wall balloons out past the rim some. 15x10 would make the tire look more square.

    And another thing with the 33x12.50R15 tires, you should trim your fenders so you have more clearance with the 4" lift. I've got the 4" as well and had to trim so they wouldn't rub when I started to articulate.

    I would suggest putting the tires on and then seeing where you need to trim.
    Some things factor in like wheel offset and how well the springs and bushings are wore in(out). When I put mine on I only did a test run through a ditch to check flex before I tore the front end down. It made it without rubbing but was very close and I didn't turn lock to lock either. I ran 33x9.5/15 on 7" wheel for years with no rub, then again I run an SOA lift so a little different than a 4".
