Clearance Question

I have a set of 265-75-16 toyo open country tires on my truck now. I see all this talk on here about 33x12.5x15 and all sorts of sizes. I have very little clearance turning wise right now but I am planning on doing the torsion bar crank here soon. Can I go with a bigger tire after i do this or am I going to run into the same turning problem. I woould like to get 33s if possible or do i have to do a body lift for those to fit? If you can help then please chime in!!

I have 33's and no rubbing. All I did was crank my t-bars.

If all you do is drive around on the street then 33x12.50s might not rub if sandwiched on a 7" wide wheel. But then what would be the point?

Cranking the torsion bars doesn't change the range of travel in the suspension. If you wheel the truck, the suspension will still compress to the bump stops where they did before and it will rub.
