Default What size tires will look good with 2" leveling kit?

Just got my Bilstein 5100 leveling kit. Was wondering what people think about the tire size I should go with? I'd like to put some 33's but not sure what size that is, I'm not a tire guy!! The tires I plan on going with are the Cooper Zeon LTZ!! Any input would be great!! Thanks guys!!

The coopers do look good and a lot of folks here like them.

A 33" will look great with a 2" level.

If you are going to use the stock rims with the stock offset, a 285 section width will fit just fine.

So, a 285/70X20 would be a good size to test fit after you level the truck. Then check for clearance with the wheels pointed straight ahead and at full steering lock in both directions.

I was just looking for 285/70/20 tires and I can't find any! What would a 285/50/20 look like? Or Is that smaller then a 70? Like I said I don't know crap about tire sizing and that!!

The higher the number, the taller the tire sidewall.

So a 75 is taller than a 70, a 70 is taller than a 65, etc...

Here's a couple of good websites that explain tire sizes and specs:
