Tire help

Ok so I took my truck in for an alignment and they realized two of my tires are separating and causing the alignment to be off so I need new tires bottom line my question is since I will be lifting it 4" in the next month or two any ways if I put 315/75-16 or 35/12.5-16 on in the mean time how bad will it rub? I don't do much with truck right now except for back and forth to work which is only about 5 min at most would I be ok for a month or 2? And also what sites have good prices on km2's and thanks in advance for your help

Ok-first,when it comes to alignment.the first thing is tow-in,then camber alignment-the second thing is checking ball joint condition-it's very common for front end ball joints to wear due to weight on front axle from diesel engine.
Third is to check for angle of front tire to match angle of back tire,i think that is when a angle cone is put in to true up front end.

I just put a set of 305 Firestone AT's on my '01 2wheel drive with a leveling kit---abt 2" lift in the front. I had to trim abt 3/8" from the edge of the bumper. These wheels and tires came off an '04 4x4 and didn't rub.I guess age of truck and 2 or 4 wheel can make a difference. The wheel studs were different also. If you were in Honolulu you could use my old ones till you got the lift!!!!
