265/75/16 for stock rims if you don't want to run spacers.

they will rub all over and require major modification if you plan on turning it ever. that guys full of shit

IDK why people keep saying to put these on other peoples trucks, but "they" need to stop. If someone asks for advise and some hoser gives him blatantly bad advise we need to ban them


265/75/16 is perfect. I'm running 265/70/17 (basically the same) and I rub from time to time.

If your hoser comment is directed at me , 255/85/16 will fit a 3" lift on stock wheels with no rub under most conditions , there's a fairly large thread on that tire size here

now now childern, play nice. 285/75r16 if you want to add spacers, remove your mud flaps and do a little trimming, otherwise 265/75r16. There is also the Nitto trail grapplers in a 285/70R16 that only require a 1/4" spacer.

you also forgot to mention that you are running spacers to fit those 285s on stock rims, correct? since there are pics of spacers in your gallery.

might wanna lay off the un-needed comments when nothing was said to you.

wrong. you sir need to educate yourself. OP no major modification is needed. like someone above said before, just take off your mud flaps, trim a little bit of plastic out of your fender wells, and throw some wheel spacers on there and you will be goo.
