are you asking what the largest size you can fit on 16's?
If so, largest you can fit with no rubs is 265/75r16.


if you're asking for suggestions on tires check out the tire section; that depends on how much you offroad

I just got 255/85/16's and I couldn't be happier.

Not sure if pizza cutters are your thing though...

It might rub at full lock, true. But there are probably 1000 people on here running that size though.

I had em' (no spacers, on the truck when I bought it) and couldn't stand it. I took them off after a couple months.

My 255/85/16's are 1" taller than those and they don't rub either, because they are skinnier, and I don't need spacers...

265 or 285

The 265 is better suited for the gearing.

I went from 265/75/16 to 285/75/16 with my OME lift.

the truck runs fine with the larger size, no dramatic power loss.

The 285s rub on the inner fender, the pinch weld area and the windshield washer reservoir. The rear will rub the fender flares. They do look cool as hell though.

If you don't want rubbing, get the 265s. They will perform well, and the loss in ground clearance (vs the 285s) is roughly a half an inch. Ditch the spacers, they don't serve any purpose with this size aside from taxing your wheel bearings.
