Default bigger tires on stock rims

I am fixing to start the lift project on my truck and it costs money obviously, so I want to temporarily keep my stock wheels which are wrapped in 245/75-16 tires, because I am going to put a 4 inch suspension lift on it and get bigger tires too. I am wanting to put 33's on my truck so what width do I need the tires to be to fit my stock rims?

I believe you will need an 8" wide tire to fit your 16" stock wheels using 33's

If you go 33x10.5 you will be fine any wider and you will need wider rims

I've been running 33x12.50's on my stock rims for 6 years. Haven't had any issues on or off road, and Personally I like the fact that they don't stick out past the fender flares.
