Default Big tire question

I have read the size chart but it does not give 33x12.5x15 as a option for factory 16x7 wheels. My dad has a set of I think American Racing deep dish gamblers that would have fit on my old f150 if it didn't have 15" breaks so I'm pretty sure they will fit on here (might need spacers) however I'm not sure if I need to raise the truck or just tweak the tbars....it currently has 245/75/16's on it and looks like it has plenty of room....here is a pic

couple things you're not going to be able to do here.... you said you have a 16" rim on your truck... the tires you are looking for are 33x12.5x15, meaning they are for a 15" wheel. A 15" wheel will fit on your truck no problem, however you are thinking about putting a wheel from an old F150 on your ranger.... I'm not sure what the wheel bolt pattern from the F150 is, but I bet it is completely different then you ranger. The wheels will most likely not fit either. Since you only have a 16x7 wheel, I would not run a wheel wider then 10.5 on it, meaning you're really looking at a 33x10.5x16 for your wheels. You will need a tbar crank (lift is always better) and maybe some trimming of the fender flares. Ideally save some cash for some decent 15x8 or 15x10 wheels and put the tires on those wheels.
