Can I run 33x12.5x16's on a leveling kit? PIC if possible.

Hey guys. First post here. I have a 2001 F250 PSD I just bought back in November. I was lucky enough to find a 1-owner up for sale with only 98k on it. Exactly what you're looking for if you are shopping for a 7.3. Anyway, I want a little more clearance and want to run 33's as posted in the title. Do I need to put a lift on the truck to run those tires, or can I go with a leveling kit and be okay? If anyone is running 33's and a leveling kit, and also has a picture I'd love to see what it would look like, granted this can be done. Thanks in advance!

Awesome thanks. Just ordered a 2.5" tuff country kit for it. Probably going to go with BFG All Terrain 33's. Can I run those tires on my stock 7" wheels without spacers? I've heard this go back and fourth but just want to make sure.

Get 35's
I have that same leveling kit and 33's looked too small on my truck

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

35s? I don't think my truck would turn with 35s I tried my bald 36s when I took the 8" lift off my truck and I know I couldn't even get half a steering wheel turn
