If you want to run stock wheels I wouldn't run anything over 11.5" wide. So I think you would be able to fit 33/11.5 r 15. If those are 15's

The best thing would be to get some aftermarket wheels that are 15x8 and then get 33/12.5r15 which is a common size for most tires

If they are 16" then I would bet 285/75/16's....which if I remember correctly is just about 33x11.5" give or take.

But like mentioned above...you could switch to 15" wheel and your 33" tires would be cheaper...but then you have to pay for some wheels.

Whats the tire size now? ex. 255/75/16? The last number is the wheel diameter. If i was guessing by the design of your wheels only i would say 15".

With the body lift and stock wheels you can fit a 33 x 11.5 or 10.5

And i would get wheels or you'll regret it. A 15x8 with 3.75" backspacing and you'll be able to fit a 33x12.5

I think in most peoples opinions your truck would look like a house on stilts. The higher you go the wider is better.
