I was running 33x14.50x15 all terrains on my stock height 78 F150 flatbed for a while. They fit the front fine but they would hit the flatbed under suspension compression. Probably would have been fine with a stock truck bed.

These are 38.5x11.00x15's On brand new springs. I did minimal fender trimming to make them fit. So 33's shouldn't be an issue.

that truck looks to be higher than stock though... are those supposed to be brand new stock coils? 35's will NOT fit mine.

Mine? If so I doubt they are anything but the original coils. I may be wrong about 35s fitting but there seems to be enough room just looking at it.

maybe it will depend on the size of your tires and your offset.

My springs are 100% original ride height from napa. With a shock that is 1 inch too short. Still waiting for them to get me the right shat. They will rub on hard bumps but not in ordinary driving. Even with the tires cranked to full lock.
