315-75-16's on stock wheels w/ just a leveling kit?

I just ordered a 2.5" shackle leveling kit off Ebay, and I was wondering if I'll be able to fit 315/75/16's on my stock wheels w/o major rubbing?

'98.5 12v QCLB 4x4 Fletcher O ringed head, II DF sticks, F1 H2 cam, 215 pump with goodies, BDS twins, studded, springs, DTT trans with Dunrite converter and valve body....650hp and 22mpg

Thumbs up

I've got a rough Country kit on mine. I cut the bumper a bit and i clear 35x12.50s with no rubbing.

99 Single Cab 4x4. Rough Country leveling kit 35x12.50x16.5 BFG Allterrains on Centerline wheels. 100,000 miles as of June 06 2008!

Planned upgrades- locked front and rear. 4.10 gears. Centerline beadlocks. New paint job. (Prolly black, purple is not my color) redo interior with carbon fiber dash and trim and a black vinal 40/60 split bench. AEM dry flow air cleaner. last is 2500 in bullydog upgrades. (i.e programmer, exhaust, 6 way switch)

Yeah they'll fit but as he said might need to do a little triming

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

I've heard on stockers they rub the leaf springs. But then again my aftermarkets have too much offset, and they rubbed the fenders even with a 3" lift(hence the adding 2" to make it 5".)

On my old truck, I had 315/70/17's on center line wheels with just a front AAL, so hopefully they'll fit

I have american eagle type 54 16x8 rims, and have succesfully run 315-75-16maxxis buckshots on them with a tough country 2.5" leveling kit without any rubbing at all. The wheels offset has alot to do with it, i beleive my rims are somwhere around a -8mm offset. I would imagine on stock rims they would rub the leaves a little bit at full lock.

I'm pretty sure I've got factory backspacing with my centerlines. 5.5 inches right is factory backspacing for these trucks right? NO RUBBING!
