I ran a set of 285x75R18 Toyo Open Coutnry At's on my truck at stock height and they rode great and never rubbed. I still run the same tires with a 4.5" lift and they still look good. They don't stick out the side of the wheel wells. Over all I think that they are a 11" wide 35. I get good wear out of them also, 35-40k

i ran 315/70r17's in BFG A/T before i put my leveling kit on, no rubbing at all.

i think on a stock truck, with no lift 33's look the best though. i had 285/70r17's first in the same tire and the 315s almost looked too big. I think it would have looked better with the 2.5" leveling kit i have now.

My Excursion had 325/60-18 Terra Grapplers on it when I bought it. They rubbed the leaf springs a little, I never noticed it in the steering wheel. I pulled them off and put on 295/70-17's Hankook Dynapro ATM's and have no issues.

285/75/16 are a good fit with no lift, plus just about every manufacturer will offer this size in both an all terrain and mud terrain so the selection is huge. 305/70/16 will also work and will give a slightly wider stance, but you won't find the tire selection compared to the 285's. Good luck!

I was just giving you the sizes that I know can work. You can toss them in a tire size calculator and find something comparable in a 16.

Here is a easy to use Tire Size Calculator. It will come really close to what the tire size will be, just be sure to check with the tire manufacturers website to get exact specifications for the tire you are considering. Manufacturers vary a little bit from each other for the same size tire, especially when you are looking at metric sized tires.

Cheers,

Brew
