No 33" tyres may be to big if you want to be particular about it you have to find out what size tyres your own particuar vehicle came out of the factory with and if it has a tyre placard in the glove box still the info should be there. There may have been different tyres fitted accross the range of patrols for eg : leaf sprung utes different to coil utes or different to short wheel base or wagons there were GLi, DX, RX, ST, Ti and XL ,XLT Mavericks.

So to be legal it will be no more than 50mm wider and 50mm taller than the factory fitted tyres specific to your vehicle.

I’m pretty sure you’d be fine with 33’s.
As for width, I think that Batts is confusing tyre width with track width. You can fit wider tyres if you like. Track width is affected by rim offset, not the actual tyre.

33's should be fine but it also depends on your suspension lift, if any.

You can't raise the vehicle more than 3" total, assuming yours was factory fitted with 31's, if you fit 33's you're limited to a 2" lift. If you want to go 3" lift, you need to stick to a 31" tyre.

Of course, if your budget stretches to engineering certification, you can do a lot more, but it'll cost you.

He still needs to check his tyre size as I mentioned above I'm pretty sure you'd be fine or 33" should be fine as used below can be taken as it's ok by some people and won't work if you get pulled over. Yeah that's right track width no more than 50mm I did mix it up there thanks.
