    not exactly what you are asking, but should give you enough to get an idea:

    2" lift with 265-70/16(approx 31" - looked awkward)

    2" lift with 265-75/16(approx 32" - good proportionate look)

    Considering 31" tires are what came on the trucks from the factory... What's the point of putting the lift on - unless you plan on putting bigger tires on?

    I think 3" would look good(as seen above) with 31" but may want to consider 32/33"

    here is my 2.5" lift with 31"

    i think trucks with 15" wheels look fine with 31 inch tires but if your wheels are are 16's or 17's then 32 inches or bigger looks better; imo of course. but then again not all tires are gonna look the same from brand to brand. i hope to get my truck lifted before the end of the month so that i can have this problem too... fingers crossed... what a money pit!

    Looking at getting some of these tires in 33in.
    Where are you rubbing?
    I supposedly have a 3in lift leveling kit in the front.
    (OME 881's w/.5 top plate. I don't mind trimming some plastic. I just need to make sure it's not rubbing the UCA.

    x2, no point, unless your going for looks. I had my 33's on with no lift for about a month, with some rubbing. Now with ~2" of lift there is only rubbing on the frame at full lock and on the rear fender when the rear tires are stuffed.

    check out the build thread
    keep in mind with 33's you will want to regear to compensate for the power loss. 32's are just about right. I have a 2.5 in bilstein lift in the front and I'm going to be adding a 1.5 in AAL in the rear when it arrives in the mail. Also will be switching from my 265/70/R16 to 265/75/R16 BFG AT
