    From what i have read on here that width will likely rub. I think 265/75/16 is the biggest people go on a stock setup with minimal rubbing. I have 265/70/16 on stock rims and no lift with no rubbing issues.

    you could get 16" steelies for that rig. I am running 235/85/16's with room to spare on a completely stock 2002. No rubbing issues what-so-ever.

    If you have 15'' rims, why not some 32x11.5's?

    I believe that with no lift, that OP would have rubbing with 32's that are greater than 8 ~ 9" wide. Could be wrong on that but I'm pretty sure the only reason that I'm getting away with 32's right now (with no lift), is because they are skinnies (235's).

    Does it look like you might get away with 33's with the 2.5" lift ?

    The KM2's tend to run narrow in the tread, I run 33" KM2's on my 4Runner with ~ 3 " of lift and that works really well.

    For some reason, I thought that the OP was looking for biggest tire with no lift but after going back, noticed that he has ~ 2.5".

    Yes I'm looking for the largest size to run with a 2.5 rough country lift and I might just try to squeeze 33s under her and just see what happens prob not the best idea but hell totals run to the wheels fall off all you gotta do is put another set on and it's back running

    With enough beating and cutting you can stuff whatever size you want

    On my 2002 Taco I had the Rough country 2.5 lift as well. with a shackle lift in the rear.

    My stock tires were 265/75R16 that came on the steel wheels.
    With the lift, and ProComp 7089 wheels (4.5" backspacing) I was able to run 285/75/16 with very little rubbing. Only at full turn on certain hill angles.
    The Tires were General Grabber AT2's.

    Vary true as I had a set of new 31X10.50-15 M/Ts on that rubbed my mud flaps as well as the plastic on the wheel well when I turned, switched out for another set of new 31X10.50-15 and they dont rub at all.
