    33x11.50 (285x75x16) reportedly fit most of the time without any lift. I don't know if the body or suspension is what gets in the way: it might depend on the wheel backspacing. I would be optimistic that they would fit.

    15 inch rims should also fit ok, as long as your brakes are 11 inches or smaller. I can fit 15 inch wheels on my '98 with 11 inch brakes. Is your '93 a half-ton or heavier duty?

    In the end, I can't say for sure, but I'm optimistic that you can fit both the 15 inch rims and the 33 inch tires.
