I think they're too wide and will rub when you turn. At minimum, you'll have to cut some plastic on the back side and they'll probably hit the bumper. .... I could be wrong though

A leveling kit is a good inexpensive way to clear 33s, better then triming or rubbing, they run about 200$ (+-)

Not sure on the height difference between a 2500 and my 1500 but I cleared everything but the sway bar on my 09 1500 2wd with 305/55r20 Zeon LTZ's. may want to look at a rim with a offset closer to 0 a -12 may cause rubbing since it sticks the tire out. Leveling kit does help it look better and with a -12 offset rim you may need it.

I have a 06 Megacab 1500 4x4 which is on a 2500 platform. I had to put a 2.5" HBS level kit to clear 305 55 R20 on 20 x10 XD ROCKSTARS. Im not sure with your truck being newer if there is any height difference. Now i dont have any tire rubbing issues at all. Just thought id add my comments to give yo an idea.

Thumbs down

Leveling kits are cheap, get one to be safe and your truck will look better. If you ever plan to lift you should think about a different wheel though.
