Welcome to the forum! You shouldn't have a problem with 33's as long as you do not go too wide. Going any wider than a 305 will almost always require some form of wheel spacer or aftermarket wheels with a different off-set. If you have factory 20" wheels the stock tires measure around 33".

what Evil said. the 275/60-20s are basically 33' tires so you should be ok. The width and wheel offset are the only other factors I can think of.

Like it was said a 33x12.5 is a pretty wide tire to use on a stock wheel. A better idea would be to look into something like a 285 metric tire. A 285 is about an inch narrower then the 12.5 and half inch on the 305.
