Largest tire for 2wd.

Alright guys, I'm new to these trucks, I just bought a 2wd leveling kit (basically front spring spacers). What is the largest diameter tire I can run without rubbing? I currently have the stock size 265-75r16's on the truck and I would like to somewhat fill the wheel well. Thanks!

a 285/75/16 should look nice.

Is it possible to fit a 34" tire, and not rub?

I have the exact same setup running a 305/70-16 on a 16x9 rim and have no clearance issues whatsoever.

I think when it's time for tires I'm going to go with a 295-75R16, it's just under 34", it should work and look pretty good.

Well, there are only 3 choices in that size, the General Grabber AT2, Nitto Terra Grappler, and BFG A/T KO's. Of the 3, the Grabber AT2 has a hard to beat combo of really good reviews, and a very reasonable price. I should be able to get a set for just under $800.
