Your stock 16" wheels are only 7" wide. This is too narrow for a tire that is 305mm(12") wide. The maximum recommended tire for your stock wheels is a 265/75R16.

If you want to run a taller and wider tire I would recommend looking into some wider aftermarket wheels. With the correct rim width and offset you can run a LT285/75R16 (great size if you tow, this size maintains 80psi max in the E load range).
