What size Wheels and Tires

Hey guys,
I am new to the site. I have an 02 cc sb F250 4x4. Im currently rolling on the 16" stock Lariat wheels and am looking to get some 18" wheels and new nitto grapplers. Does any one have suggestions on what size tire would be best without any rubbing. My truck sits stock height now. I am thinking about going with some moto metal wheels. Pic of some trucks would be good so i could get an idea of the right look I am going for. Anyone have pics of stock height F250 with 18" wheels????

Kinda wondering the same thing except for my '08 with 18's (too tall and skinny for me). I seem to remember another thread talking about the same thing but couldn't find it.

I have 33" hankook mud terrains on my truck and they rub just a little bit at full lock on the leaf spring. But other than that, they are fine. Im acually gonna go back to 265s when I need new tires. These trucks are jsut to damn heavy to go muddin any ways.....found that out the hard way. I think my tires now are 295 75 16s. They do fill out the wheel wells a little better though....As for the 2008, I know that you can run bigger tires stock then the older truck. I beleive that you can run up to 35s with little to no rubbing. Correct me if Im wrong...
