I can tell you from personal experience when I went from 16" to 18" rims on my other truck it made a huge difference in braking. I did the + size tire and rims from tire rack and it would not stop as quickly as it did with stock stuff. I would assume the same if you went from 16" with 265 to 18" and 33's.

I like the wheels btw, very nice!

It's not a solid number, it'll be off by a percentage. Mine goes from damn near dead on under 30 to off by about 5 mph at 70 indicated.

While you have a point on the brake failure thing, you really have nothing to worry about. Granted it's not an issue if you're gonna drop it anyway, but look at all the other trucks on here running like 35-37 inch tires on their stock brakes. It'll reduce braking performance for sure, but I don't see brake "failure" occurring from it.
