33's would fit well with no rubbing, you could probably run 35's with no rubbing depending on the flares you run. With 4" of lift, you would need to worry about other limiting factors, not clearance. You'll need to make sure your drivetrain is up to the task of turning whatever tires you are running. Particular attention needs to be paid to the rear end, the D35 (if that's what you have) is notoriously weak, and it can't really handle more than 33" tires.

For future reference, this is a topic that has been beat to death. Next time, try using the "Search" function at the top of the page.
