yeah 33s will work a lot better but might still slightly rub on full lock. 35s are going to rub like crazy on the 03... (sorry I didn't notice what year truck you had to begin with.)

Yeah the back spacing is wrong you really need 4.5 inches of backspacing. The 5 inches of backspacing is gonna put the tires closer to the leaf springs.
