Those tires measure to be 32.8x11.2/16. You more than likely will have issues with clearance at the doors without adjustable arms

I say this as i have 32s on mime and there isnt too much room in the rear between the door and tire. It may work though

Not unless you have adjustable CAs, and even then I'm not sure. I'm on 285s with RE 3.5" springs, but my front and rear fenders are trimmed.

....and your tires will probably rub the front control arms when you turn if you dont have aftermarket rims or wheel spacers.

good gas mileage is highly overrated.

They will, its really not that bad and you dont loose too much on the turning radius. It is, however, a little weird to get used to. (Not turning so hard that is)

Im on 32x11.50 right now with just a BB and 4" back spacing on my rims, all fenders are trimmed. It does'nt rub anywhere, so im guessing with the amount of trimming ive done i could fit 33s with a 3.5" lift.
