With the BFG MT 33x12.50R15's I'm running, only a minimal amount of rubbing is occuring on the rear fender flares (no rubbing in the front) at full compression. (So the black plastic flares need some trimming.) I've also found since the tire is out so far (greater track width), that the turning radius is actually better than stock. I actually still need to tighten the bolt for the steering stops which will increase my turning radius. Two additional things I might note is that the tire width is a bit wider on the 10" rim verses the 8" rim (again, slightly wider track width.) Even with the additional height of the 33" tires, the roll-over angle has to be as good, if not better than stock due to the extra width gained on the wider rims. Also, another benefit is that the entire hub assembly (including the metal shield) actually fits inside of the rim about an inch (does a nice job of protecting everything from any stray debris on the trail.)
