    im kinda in the same boat but i was thinking a 285 70 16. i know i would encounter some rubbing but i would like to see what it looks like. would the extra little bit in height be enough to offset the rubbing issues

    ah....in that case......you'll more than likely need wheel spacers if you have stock wheels, and you'll definitely need to do a lil trimming for fit without rubbing.

    sounds like good advise thanks. Also any idea on traction in the rear. It seems that my truck is getting loose in the end lately. My tires are very good. I thought about putting sand bags in the back???
