I am willing to bet you will have issues with the tire rubbing in the front really bad with the stock rim when turning. I run an 7.5-8 rim with 33x12.50s with 4 backspacing and needed to adjust the stops to keep it from hitting.

if you adjust stops you should be fine, I have seen 33x13.50 boggers put on a stock 7" wide rim, had plently of space between the frame in the back, just makes them look like big fat donuts.

Heres 33x12.5 BFG Mud terrains on stock 15x7 Jeep wheels on my 93 YJ with the RE XD 2.5" lift, 5/8" lift shackles, and TJ flares. I had to add a few washers behind each steering stop to keep from rubbing the springs and sway bar but it cleared the fenders fine. I ran this way for a year but have since swapped to 15x8 wheels with less backspacing.

it is the back spacing that will hurt you on the stock wheels.
i am running 35" tires on 7" beadlocks with 3.75" back spacing.
