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?

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!
