I don't know other than to say you'll probably need to know the backspacing/offset of the rim before anyone can answer that question accurately. A difference as small as a quarter inch can make a difference in clearance.

My research on this board tells me on stock rims, on a stock 4x4, 285/75R16 (32.8 X 11.2) will fit without rubbing, but 305/70R16 (34.0 X 12) will rub springs at full lock on stock wheels.

When I had 35's on my truck I had the trim the front bumper a bit but the rub on the leaf spring at full lock. My 305/70/16s dont rub one bit. Even on stock rims, but the tires also arent new. I'm putting some 35's on tommarow with my 16x8 rims and will get back to you.
