Tires

I have a 97 crew cab 4x4 and until now I always had the stock tires on it 235/85r16. I was wondering what was the biggest tire I could put on with out them rubbing. The truck is at stock height. Thanks for the help

Agree with Smkstax then You might even be able to get away with a slightly bigger tire then 285/75/16 also...
