I have exactly 2" of lift and 33" tires. For me it is plenty of room especially after cutting the flares.

Here is a before and a couple of afters.

I used wide flairs (original post). I got a pair of used wide flairs on craigslist for half the price of new. The picture you shared above are factory or Rubicon flairs cut down.
