the biggest that works the best is a 285-75R16(32.7-11.00R16)but if you want something taller and they fit is a 295-75R16(33.3-11.50R16)and you can run 35's with a leveling kit but they are almost to wide for the stock wheels..

I have a '03 with 6.0. Stock suspension. I'm on my second set of LT305-70R16E's. They are 33x12.5x16. No rub. Comes close - but even a hard steer corner - no rub on leaf fronts! I run Nitto AT's.

305 will fit front with leafs. 315 will fit front with coils. Everything will fit in rear.

I have seen 295-75 16’s on a stock 01 and they looked good, I wouldn’t recommend the 315’s I have, they do not ride as steady and the rub the leafs real bad in a sharp turn. I will probably go with 305’s next time. Main thing is make sure the weight rating is heavy enough for the big diesel.
