Default Nitto 33's on stock 17s?

ive got a 2006 1500 4wd standard cab ram. i need new tires and dont want 245s on it anymore, they look tiny. i want a mud tire, and im thinking the nitto mud grapplers. i dont have the money for new wheels as the tires will be about 1000 bucks. so, my questions is, can i put 33 12.50 r17s on my stock wheels and not rub? my 2" leveling kit will go on at the same time as my tires. my stock wheels are the 17 inch five spoke wheels, i think they are 17x8 or 9, not sure which. ill be doing this next week so any help would be great! thanks guys!

You will be fine with 33s on your truck. If you get the spacer alone they say you can put up to a 35. i have a 2.5"lift with 33s and I have no rubbing. 305/55/20 are the size I have on my stick 20s

you will have to have a 1/4" spacer if using the factory wheels!

I got Nitto 285/70r17s (basically a 33") on my 2wd ram (2005) with the 17 inch rims. I have no lift or level at all and I don't rub

That's because 285/70/17 is basically a 33x11.50 tire and from what I've read the 12.50 and up wide tires are the ones that require spacers or different wheels.
