You could do it but the ride will suffer.

What offset wheel?

I have 20x10's with -12 offset on my 06. Before the tires I have now I had 33x12.5's. It's doable but as mentioned your ride will suffer because you'll have to have the front end cranked up quite a bit and you'll wear through front end parts faster, and you'll probably still have to do some trimming.

I looked at a Zone 3” lift id like to stay away from the leveling kits just because of how they are hard on front ends

Another option is a small adjustable lift and lower it down. Zone or cognito are popular.

The only good way to run large tires is to do a suspension lift. Most of the 6" lifts can be turned down to 4" and give you nice flat angles up front, which will keep factory ride quality while giving you the option to run 33"-35" tires.
