the poland flares will give you a little more clearance than the bushwackers but im not sure how much.

Tire size depends on what you want to do with her jeep.. will it see only the street and dirt roads? or will you want to take it on some mild trails as well?

I ran a BB and 245/75r16 KM1's on stock rims with no spacers for years. It would only rub in the front at full lock.

If you want to run a narrower 33" tire, you can get by with 4" and minor trimming. If you want to run a 33/12.5, you will have to do some considerable trimming unless you limit your uptravel. I believe that Iceland style fenders remove quite a bit more material from the top of the wheel well, so that would be a better bet to keep a LCOG.

Here's my rig on worn out 33" TSL's at 4"


Here it is at 6" (BB + 4" IRO LA's)

I ran a BB and some like 30" tires/ wheels and I loved it. I ran hells and poison spider. It was great.

I always caught myself wishing it had a BB again after I lifted it because it was so much more fun/challenging to wheel and rode amazing. If its not going to see anything harder then hells revenge, I would go with 2" around 31's or what ever fit and the bushwackers. It would look great.
