Yeah, I would definitely go 33s.

Here is 265/75/16 which is equivalent to a 31.6" tire like STL said with a body lift 16x7 wheels with 4.5" backspacing (like all stock wheels)




^^^PIZZA CUTTER STATUS


and now 33/12.5/15 8" wide wheels with 3.313" backspacing

Yeah man for sure. If you're low on the cash part of it it will be well worth the wait. I bought everything in parts, first the BL then i stumbled across these tires for 300 bucks on craigslist so i picked them up then same day i bought my classic 2's.

Probably. It should already look weird since you're an edge. Edge trim level trucks sit the same as 4x4s.
