1975 Highboy tire size?

Will 33 inch tires (or whatever the metric equivalent is) fit on a stock 75 F250 highboy without rubbing or anything?

I have a 73 highboy with 30" tires and I have a lot of room to spare, another 1 1/2" in radial shouldn't be an issue.

Yeah my wheel wells have tons of room, mine are about 30 inch tires as well, I just don't wanna spend the money on new tires and have the front tires rub when I turn, I doubt they will but I didn't know if anyone had 33's on their highboy and could tell me for sure.

Well, there's more than just the outer diameter in this. With the throw of my rims, I have about 4" between the wheel well and the tire, if your rims tuck you tire in further, you might not have the clearance, but I'm assuming your rims have similar dimensions as mine, they're designed to go on a highboy.
