bigger wheels on rear axle?

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.

itll probably look terrible. they wont fit at stock height unless you have an edge but even then, you'll be doing the same thing as lowered cars avoiding pot holes and speed bumps unless you want to rub the bedside

you could add more lift to the rear if you wanted to but it'll just look even more goofy with an added amount of rake
