I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong... But I believe you can run up to a 305/70/16 without any rubbing issues...

Widest you can fit on a stock rim is 285/75/16. After that you need different rims.

Some guys do, but I think it's too wide.

I'm running 305/70/16s on my stock rims. I have a leveling kit and it doesn't rub except for at full lock they will rub the leafs a little. The tires look a little big on the stock rims but don't give me any problems. Even wear and smooth balanced ride. I also run 285/75/16s and they don't rub at all.
