33 inch tires

Ok, I'm going with 33inch tires on the stock 16 inch rims cause I'm trying to do this as cheap as possible..... I believe I need 1.5 inch spacers? What is the widest width that will fit on the stock 16 inch rim? And most importantly, how do I search for this in tire size language? Thanks!

stock steel rim is a little narrow for a 33" tire ie 285/75-16. You can do it but they look kind of funny to me. 16X8 rim is about perfect for 285/75-16's stock is 16X7.

most manufacturers i've been looking at recommend at least 7.5" rim with a 285/75 tire.

For searching just hit any tire site or Google and put in 33x16 or 285/75/r16.

For cost of quality spacers you could probably run 15" wheels and get a good price on 33x12.5x15. <---- search that here and read the long one about that setup maybe.
