    You'll want something with 4"-4.5" backspacing, and you can run 32's (265's) with no rubbing on stock suspension. The smaller the backspacing, the more they will stick out.

    32 x 10.5 is the biggest on stock suspension I believe (I have an 09, but from what I've read the max tire size you can fit is about the same between gens, might want to double check that with someone who has a 1st gen)

    If you want 16" rims, most are 8" wide. You would want 0 offset to get the 4.5" backspacing on an 8" wide rim.
