Biggest tire on stock wheel

Does anybody know what the biggest size you can put on a stock wheel is? The truck is a 99 extended cab long bed. It's the wheels with the 8 holes all around it.

1999 Extended Cab Long Bed: Tymar, HID's, 4" straight pipe, GlowShift A-Pillar Gauges, Boss Super Duty Poly 7'6" plow, Amber Rotator, 3-Pattern Strobes

1981 Corvette: GMPP 350 Crate motor, Hooker side pipes, L88 hood, Shift-Kitted TH350 trans, Custom halo headlights

1999 Suzuki SV650: Full M4 exhaust

i have a 99 extended cab f250 superduty... i have stock wheels on it.. (not original stock) but still stock wheels. I put 315/75/r16 bfg a/t on and they rubbed the springs... didnt hit the corners but did hit springs lost about 1/2 steering each way.

i'm now running brand new falcon 305/70r16 on same wheels and full turning and no rubbing but still make truck look bigger. i'm a huge fan of them. they were the cheapest i could find new, normal 50-60k life, good aggressive pattern.

I'm curious myself.... I also am thinking about the 2" or 3" wheel adapters to give it a wider stance.

I would think a 295-305 should fit w/o any other mods, but I have not tried as of yet.
