No worries. I think you need to stick to 33s for a couple reasons. One, putting 35s on a 7" wide rim can be done. But most reputable shops don't like to do it. Two, 35s on that same size rim will feel horrible at highway speed because of the extra flex in the sidewall. Three, they will rub at full lock. Stick to a 33x 10.5 and you shouldn't have any rubbing. If you go to a 11.50 inch wide tire on that same rim, you might rub at full lock or while flexed. But not enough to really worry about.
At the end of the day, there are a ton of different opinions on what rubs and what doesn't and at least as many variables to consider. But when spending money, err on the side of caution and worse comes to worst, you might have to sell them and buy slightly smaller. Not the end of the world. Just annoying.
