Largest tires I can fit on a stock OBS?

I searched and looked for a bit, didn't come across a thread.

I'm going to be getting new tires soon. Was wondering what the largest ones I can fit on a stock OBS is? My truck currently has 265's if I remember right. And with those tires A lot of frame shows in the rear.

Was wondering if I could fit 285's/33's on my truck without any trimming or anything.

Thanks.

You can fit 285s on there easily.

Thanks for the quick response. I was somewhat concerned about having to trim the from bumper, but I guess that isn't an issue.

Biggest I could fit was a 285/75/16, I had to do a very minor trim on the bumper, but you could easily just space it out a little

yeah but yours is a 350, with that dana 60 under there your truck sits a lot higher stock compared to a 250.
