Yes - No or yes (hard to sort the "not-s") ...and Yes.

You can go to a 9.50 ..maybe a 10.5...but not a 12.5 in a 33..and you will still rub somewhat with the 5+ (either 5.5 or 5.75 depending on the source) backspacing of the Canyon wheel.

They will rub, you can adjust your steering stops to solve the problem though.

Or use wheel spacers.
