Yes, another tire size question....

I'm running the following:

Suspensionis 5100's all the way up in the front and 1.5 aal in the back.

Wheels are 16x8 with 4.5 backspacing.

I know this has been covered but what is the biggest tire that can go under there? I'm running 265/70 now and considering BFG AT's. Sorry for the redundancy, I'm sure this has been covered.

No 285/75/16 BFG? The page I'm looking at says that's 32.9"x10.3" which it shows as being .5" thinner than the ones im running now. I'm sticking with 16 wheels. Thoughts? Help? Am I confused?

Ah sorry I misread your OP. 265/75/16, 265/70/17, same thing basically.

Make sure the wheels clear the brake calipers, several brands of 16s do not.

Nothing some minor trimming and possible cab mount chop won't alleviate.

Yep. 285/75R16 is pretty typical with these minor mods.
