I am planning on going with some 315s. I got a 2" spacer for the rears that should work just fine.

315-75R16(35-12.50R16)you need spacers to keep the tires from touching on the duals one other size that you can go with is the 255-85R16(33-10.50R16)and you don't need spacers..

Will the 255's work on old style steel wheels, or just the new SD wheels?

Im running 35-12.50-16" on stock 95' wheels with the steel spacers works fine but plan on wearing out the centers of your tires

We had a 93 dually that had 9.00x16 Power kings on it with no spacer and had no problems what-so-ever.

the 255-85R16 will work on all PSD's with 16" wheels and they are about the same size as the 9.00X16 tires but not quite as wide so you shouldn't have a bit of trouble..the one thing i want to say is with runnin a wide tire drop the air a little because with a wider tire it distributes the weight and therefore you need less air,the best rule to follow is if the the tires are wearing in the center drop the air but if they're wearing on the shoulders and air but if you are towing heavy keep a good amount of air in the tires..
