Widest tires w/ leveling kit

I like the look of wide tires and am Kind of planning ahead here. I'm wondering what the widest tire I can fit with minimal rubbing. I know backspacing is important and I'd like any suggestions. Pics would be good too. I will be leveling my truck with a 2.5 spring pack in the next few weeks.

I'm running 295/70R18 on 18x9 DC2 with no rubbing. My truck is a '03 so I have front leaf springs. My tires are 1" off the springs at full lock.

325's should fit though and would look good. But will have minimal rubbing.

you might fit a 33x15.5 with a dc-1 "maybe" dont take my word for it but i think it would fit but if not the the widest youll get is a 13.5 which sticks out a decent amount my 315/75s stick out close to 2 inches on both sides with my 16.8 wheels on my 99

I wish the chrome DC-1s came in 18x12. What size tire would I have to run? 33?

A 325 will fit with no rub (leafs) as long as you get a wheel that has right at 4.5" BS.

on my 03 i had 18x9.5 pro comps with a 33x12.50 and the were close to rubbing.. i had to pull the plastic fender piece back a little.. but i only had an add-a-leaf so if you can actually get 2.5'' out of your leveling kit then you can go a little bigger...
