its kind of hard to see but from the front of the fender i measured 3 inches 33 would fit but over bumps it probly would hit.

Like anything else, it depends on the rim/tire width that is used. 33's on say a 10" rim will rub with stock springs. In fact, narrow 33's on a narrow rim, would probably rub under most conditions.
