    I'm running the following:

    Suspensionis 5100's all the way up in the front and 1.5 aal in the back.

    Wheels are 16x8 with 4.5 backspacing.

    I know this has been covered but what is the biggest tire that can go under there? I'm running 265/70 now and considering BFG AT's. Sorry for the redundancy, I'm sure this has been covered.

    No 285/75/16 BFG? The page I'm looking at says that's 32.9"x10.3" which it shows as being .5" thinner than the ones im running now. I'm sticking with 16 wheels. Thoughts? Help? Am I confused?

    Ah sorry I misread your OP. 265/75/16, 265/70/17, same thing basically.

    Make sure the wheels clear the brake calipers, several brands of 16s do not.

    Nothing some minor trimming and possible cab mount chop won't alleviate.

    Yep. 285/75R16 is pretty typical with these minor mods.
