lift and 33" tires

Before i get flamed at by other members, I did search through the previous posts but didnt find the exact answer im looking for, so bear with me

Im planning to get 33" tires along with 18x9 wheels and bushwacker flares. Will these tires fit and not rub without lift? if no, which is the minimum lift which will accommodate the 33" ?which one will look best with 33" ?
Will the 33" stick out with the bushwacker fenders ?
note, im not planning to go bigger than 33"

Thanks in advance.

To fit 33's you will likely need a leveling kit to give you 2.5 - 3" spacer in the front and 1" block in the back. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install. Google "tundra leveling kit" and you'll find a wealth of info. I bought the Revtek 2.5 kit and did not install the rear blocks. Truck is now level and I've got plenty of room for 33's.

I had the 2.5" level kit in mind, thanks for the response.

Its the same size i had it mind. I dont want to go with bigger tires, it will make the car heavier, hence it wont climb much on the sand dunes, im thinking of going with the michellen LTX, based on my experience with them, they are good on road and most suitable for desert driving, MTs are not suitable for the desert.
I will try it without lift and later evaluate if i need it or not.
