How Big of a tire can i fit on a stock 99 crew cab?

Hey Guys, I am thinking about getting some bigger tires for my 99 crew cab 4wd , since I have determined that it may be a while before I can lift it. So, the question is, what size tire can I fit under a stock truck? Thanks for the help..

4wd you can go with 305/70's, although I've seen some folks run 315's and they just barely rub. not sure on 2wd If I had a 4wd I'd just put on a leveling kit and some 35's or 315's

I believe 285/75/16 fit nice with no rub. I have 315/70/17's with 2" add-a-leafs on all 4 sides, but they rub a little.

Thanks for all the info guys. I am sure that I will need a leveling kit for now. I have seen some on ebay for under $100. Not sure if that is good or not. 7.3pwrstroke what did you have in mind?
