Yes, you just have to find tires that fit, like a 285/75/17, i think there are some options out there.

PS a 285/75/16 is technically a 32.83x11.22x16 but pretty close to a 33x12.50

Yes you can, but a 33x12.50 is going to require more trimming. I am running 12.50 wide tire, so it is possible.

4.5 backspacing? and is it plastic trimming or more than that?

I trimmed a lot of plastic and the cab mounts, but you cant tell the plastic is trimmed unless you got under my truck. It was all well worth it in my opinion, but not every one feels the same about cutting on thier truck.
