Assuming it's gen3, you're more than fine on that setup. I'm not sure about the older daks though.

Good Luck.

I have 33x12.5x15 BFG ATs on the stock wheels on my '99 CC with the Tuff Country 5.5" Lift. The front of each will rub the frame on a tight turn. I really wanted to keep the stock wheels, so I'm not bothered by this, but with aftermarket wheels having a liitle deeper offset than stock you'll be fine. Truck looks great with 33's too.

I ahve an article from 4 Wheel Adventures magazine where they put a 3inch Rancho lift on a 99 and 33x12.0's on 15x8's with no rubbing at all. With the 10 inch wide rims you will need the body lift to keep from rubbing. Tony, yours shouldnt be rubbing the frame. Are your rims the stock 15x7 or 15x8? If it is the 7's then yeah I guess it may cause of the offset being closer in but if you have the 8's they sit out a little more. I have the 7's and the wifes 4x4 Durango has the 8's. Maybe your stops need to be adjusted. Thats really weird.

They're the 15X8s (came with the 31's from the factory). At first I thought the toe-in (or one of those other fancy alignment terms) was out of whack, but it's all dead on. My high-tech solution is that I just don't turn the wheel to lock. My Dak doesn't see any off roading (it's strickly my rain, snow, sleet, ice and unplowed driveway :>) truck), so I don't really have a tight spots to steer through. I leave the rough stuff to my '77 K5 with 36" Fun Country radials.
