yeah you can get 33's for 16in rims,but it's really up to you rather you want new rims or not,perfect size would be 33x12.50 no larger than that on a stock rim

Stock wheels are 7" wide. 285/75R16 and 305/70R16 are equivalent to a 33" tire for 16" wheels. 285's are 11.2" wide and 305's are 12" wide.

BFG AT's, Falken ATS, and Nitto Terra Grappler's are good.

It all depends on what you want. Do you want a mud terrain or an all terrain?

also keep in mind..muds look badass, but they suck more gas and and bit of a rougher ride
