Tires n clearence ?'s

How much of a lift will my 95' K2500 need to clear a 33.3" x 8.8" = 245/70R19.5 tires ?

Apparently the wheels i need Vision 81's only come in 19.5" x 8" wheels, which apparently will only fit 245-285/70R19.5's i'm told the wheels are too wide for the 225/70R19.5's 32.5" x 7.5". . .

Edit:
So basically i need to fit a 33x9 tire under my K2500 . . .

This project is rapidly becoming a pain in the ars . . .

I wanted to run 225/70R19.5 tire's on the alloy 5 spoke wheels but i'm told the rim is to wide for the tire, and the wheel shop dose have narrower wheel's but they look hideous. . .

To go with tires that fit the wheel's then i may have to lift the truck which in itself is another arsy project costing money $-( !

225/70R19.5 32" v.s. 245/70R19.5 33.3" . . .

Well I guess why run bigger heavier wheels n tires . . .

The Military trucks powered by the GM 6.2/6.5 Diesel's Ran 4.56 gear's with 7.50-16D & 235/85R16E tires, they held up for years and are still run driving working and towing. . .

There were towing 1.25ton truck loads with 3/4ton & 1 ton trucks

I talked to a surplus dealer who has had great luck with selling these such truck's says the 6.2L/3spd auto powered trucks run 55-60mph and the 6.5L/4spd auto trucks run 70-75mph just fine so it'll go plenty fast for me. . .
