Let me know what you're looking for and I'll help you out on the pricing so you're not too broke.

For the wheel size with a 33" tire I would go with 15" to keep a healthy sidewall for airing down.

15"- those are hit or miss. Some 15's rub the brake caliper, some don't. And the only way to figure it out is to mount them. Even the ones that don't hit, the space between the wheel and caliper is tiny- just begging for something to get caught in there.

I would go with 16" (in fact that is what I did go with. And as far as sidewall goes- the 15" is only going to give you .5" added sidewall height (if that). IMHO not worth the trouble considering the possible caliper issue. A 33" tire on a 16" wheel will give you 8" (+/-) of sidewall, which is practical for most off-road use.
