It'd be hit or miss. 33s no problem, some people are able to fit 35s with no rubbing, but most do require a front level. I'd say order the 295/60s and if you DO rub, then spend the $100 and get a front level spacer. But, if you're gonna need a spacer, you may as well just go to 35s.

You might want to look at 35s then. They're more common and should be a bit less than a 34" odd-ball size that not many manufactures have. But if you're doing the Bilstein upgrade then you'll have no problems getting those under there with no rubbing.

You can fit the 35's on a leveled truck but you also have to worry about rubbing on the upper control arms! With a 295 you are going to need 1/4" wheel spacers with the stock wheels(need more negative offset), unless of course you're getting new wheels also!

Discount Tire will not let you run spacers on your truck if they put the tires on. I bought my terra grapplers from them and about 2 weeks later put some spacers on. When I went to get my tires rotated (free since I bought the tires from them) they took all my spacers off and told me I could not have them on if they are going to be working on my truck. That even came from the head manager who ran the store. I guess it's some kind of policy the company has.
