You can fit 285/75/16's on there no problem. Every truck can run those. Some can run a little taller and wider. I had the 285's on my old 2wd and they didnt scrub.

Yeah I would go with the 285/75/16. Thats what I have and never had any problems. You can go bigger to a 305 or 315 if you want but then you tires tend not to lay flat on the road there for wearing them out a bit quicker in the center
