Exclamation tires

i know this question has been asked ALOT but i still need reassurance. I have a 99 psd. currently with 285/75/R16 dayton timberline mt's, however i installed a full leveling kit plus add a leaf in the the rear. can i fit 315's under the truck without having to cut out the fenders or rub too much. or should i just go the safe route and go to 305's?

The 315's will rub at full lock on the leaf springs. When I had 305's they didn't rub at all.

Are you getting aftermarket wheels? or using the stock ones.

Because that makes a difference, in regards to backspacing on the wheels.

I've seen lots of guys run 35x12.5 on a leveling kit. It all depends on what you're using your truck for though. In extreme conditions it will rub but most guys never get to that point. Those tires will rub your leafs too. If you're city driving it definetly makes things a little more difficult as far as sharp turning goes. I run 37x13.5x18 on my 04 and thats my biggest pet peeve.
