How Much lift do i need?

Hey Guys! I'm planning on ordering the Mickey Thompson MTZ radial tires size 33/12.50/15R . i have the factory tires on right now, will i have to get a lift kit to get enough clearance? if i do about how many inches will i need to lift? and what are the best options price wise.
thanks in advance!

You're good to go!! Actually, you can go 35's with no lift whatsoever.
I would go ahead and order bigger tires, you'll want them later.

I'm also getting method wheels that are 15" would that work? Or should I get 16" or 17"?

Yeah I wanted 35s but thought I would have to lift the truck for that but if it gets good clearance and doesn't rub then I'm definitely going for 35s haha

You have 16" currently?

Chances are - 15" WILL NOT work because it won't fit around the brake calipers.

I can't say for certain - but - I would stay with the same size you have now (or bigger) and avoid any headaches later.

if 35's fit on stock suspension what is a good leveling kit to use, I have been hearing a lot about bilstein 5100, would it be better to use a spacer or get a whole shock kit?

unless you cut the piss out of your fenders 33s wont fit without a 2.5-3 in lift 35s will not fit on stock and without cutting you would need at least 6 inches.... 15 inch wheels do not fit over the breaks this is discussed too much for a new thread which is why people are telling you otherwise because iff your not willing to search they arent willing to take this as a serious question
