Tire time

I hate to be the guy who ask one of those "will it fit" questions but I've run out of sources of info and come spring or sooner I'm definitely going to need some new tires and I want to go bigger than the stock 275/65/18's Wrangler AT/S.

My question is, on a stock front suspension 2005 F150 FX4 how wide of a tire will fit using stock rims without rubbing or have minimal rubbing at full crank? I know how tall I can/want to go but the width thing isn't quite as concrete. If I can I want to put a 33x12.5x18 on it or something equivalent to that. I know with a leveling kit and some offset wheels I can go big but I want to try it stock first. Thanks for any input you guys can offer.

Mine's an 05 but thanks for your reply. I think I've found the answer to my question elsewhere.

the stock tire on a 04-08 f150 is a 32.6 so ya a 33 will fit with no prob.
