bigger rear wheels?

i have bf goodrich at ko wheels they are 31x10.5 i need new rear tires seeing its rear wheel drive and i take it out quite a bit. so i be thinking about getting the same tires but 33x12.5 and replacing just the rear tires. ive done some research and dont see why it would be a problem however i dont think ive ever seen a truck with bigger rear tires and am curious what yall think of it and how it would look. i believe it would give me quite a bit more traction and i wouldnt mind lifting my bed up another inch or two.

You could do it as long as its a 2wd. It will change your caster a bit but you prob won't even notice with that small of a size difference. Back home lots of old farm trucks ran huge mud tires in back and stock in front. I've seen rangers and other late model trucks running big sand paddles in the rear at the sand dunes.
