Wheel/Tire Fit??

I know this question has been asked many times, but couldn't find the answer for my truck. I have a stock 1995 Super Cap XLT Long Bed 4x4 with 235/85R16 on it but want a bigger tire and don't know how big I can go without modifications. Would a 16x8 wheel with 265/70 fit without rubbing? Thanks for your help

265 70 16 is a little shorter and wider than a 235 85 16. 265 or 285 75 16 will fit. 265 is the same height as your 235 but wider. 285 is equal to a 33x11

Thanks for the help. I thought the 265/70 would fit ok, but didn't know if the 285/75 would be pushing it for being too big. Now I can buy a tire without being worried of not getting to use it.

I have 285/75's, and if i turn to the right look there is no rubbing, but if i try to go to the left lock it rubs bad. Also have to shim or trim the bumper to make em fit as they need just a little bit more room.

They should work, my brother ran 285 on a 16x8 wheel for a while with no mods and it was fine.

Also, he just put on a leveling kit which was like 90 bucks, he runs 305s now. Made the truck look a lot better and seemed to help out that ttb from end. Just a thought.

The wheel offset has a lot to do with rubbing. I have 325/60/r18 which is equivalent to a 33/12.50 and they rub when reversing and turning. But, my wheel has an aggressive negative offset.

Hey Southern7.3, how much lift does a leveling kit usually put on a truck? I do want to lift it but don't really want to go very high. Just want to give it a little better look.
