Re: Mickey Thompson 33x12.50x17 & Xd Series 17x9 Fitting???...
I run 33x12.5 Nitto Terra Grapplers on a nine-inch wide rim. I also have a ToyTec 3" lift. Obviously, this is not an identical setup, but it may be instructive to your application. My setback is -6mm.
With -6mm setback, I have exactly 15mm of space between the sidewall and the UCA. It does not appear to have ever rubbed.
So, if my wheels had zero setback (like the KMC's) instead of -6mm, the tire would be 6mm closer to the UCA. To wit: fifteen millimeters of room, minus six millimeters, equals nine millimeters. That's just 3/8 of an inch of room to spare (a.k.a. less than one centimeter) with the MT's and KMC's.
That's probably too close a fit.
And yes, you will need a body mount chop.
