Oversize tire question

I have a 1995 f-250 with the stock alcoa aluminum wheels on it. I'm wanting to run some larger tires on the rear (like 33x12.5) on the rear but i'm wondering what is the largest/widest tires i can run on the stock wheels. Mine is a 2wd and i like the look of a taller/wider mud tire on the rear since i'm in pastures from time to time. thanks guys.

I wouldn't mix tire sizes between fronts and rears. Trucks aren't designed to have different sizes of wheels between front and rear and even a small difference can have a dramatic effect of vehicle control and stability.

Thanks for the input Canadian, but i have run a larger tire in the rear of my 2wd 3/4 ton for years and have never had any issues out of them. I'm just trying to find out what size i can run on this stock wheel.
