    Welcome to the club! I'm assuming that you mean the tires are 33". If the tires are 33" they WILL probably rub unless you do some trimming in the front. Otherwise, you can pick up a 2"-2.5" leveling kit for anywhere from $60-$250 and you should be able to clear the 33s without any problems.

    Welcome!! Because of the width in conjuction with them being 33's, I would agree with Vincennes. The other thing to take into consideration is the rim backspacing and/or offset. Will your friend let you put on one to check first?

    Hey Collin, welcome to the GM truck club.
    Since this is your friend that's selling them, try bolting them on first before you buy them. If he won't let you bolt them on first, then he isn't your friend, he's just some guy trying to sell you some tires & wheels.

    Hey yeah agree with all them. you will need to do some trimming but my still rub. you should borrow them and mount them up and see what you need to do to them. If you decide to get the leveling kit it iwll give you 2-3" of height and it looks sharp!
