I have a 2 inch leveling on the front end and stock suspension on rear on my 2014 f150 platinum. I am running 285x55xr20 ko2s on my stock rims. I have no rubbing any where at any time on or off road. I want to move to a taller tire to fill up more of the wheel wells. I only have 1 inch clearance between upper cont. arm and tire. Have been searching threads to find what you folks are running on stock rims. Would really like a 33x12.50 on them but everyone says it will rub for sure. Don't mind trimming plastic but my concern is the clearance between the upper control arm. Feel free to weigh in. Recommendations welcome

Up/down the control arm will move with the tire. Turning the tire should pivot around the arm. 285 width is 11.25" so to get to 12.5 you'll add .625" (5/8") to each side of the wheel. You'd still have about 3/8" space - ABOUT depending on how the sidewall bulges out.
I had less than that on a car but the tires did't move much because the sidewall was so short.

It will be close.

Thanks. I'm going to look around and see if I can find that set up on a local truck and go from there.

Could you not go to a 275/60 or 275/65? I almost went 275/65 this last time around with no level.
