I was hoping to get a tad bigger being a 350. I got 285s on my stock 250.

But thanks for your reply.

I've seen 305/70r16's on a stock truck...He trimmed the corner of the bumper so they couldn't hit it. I've seen 315/75r16s on a truck that had the add a leafs.

my 94.5 had 305/70r16s on it (stock height) and the PO trimmed a little corner off the bumper. I didnt have any rubbing against any steering components either.
