315/75R16 on an 03

I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times and i tried to search but we all know the search sucks. Can i fit 315/75R16 on a stock 2003 F250??? I know they will rub a full lock but do they clear everything else???
I'm getting a leveling kit soon but i NEED tires NOW so i dont want to buy small tires and then wish i had gone bigger.
Thanks guys!!!!

Yes. If you have factory mud flaps then you will have to modify.

I had 315 75R16's on my 03 with a leveling kit and they rubbed. Probably would rub pretty bad stock, but if you're going to put the leveling kit on soon you should be alright.

What kind of leveling kits do you have for leaf sprung trucks? I am just looking to get a cheap mini spring pack off of ebay. Would that be fine or??

I have an 03 f250 with a 2.5 inch leveling kit with 315-75-16s and they rub at full lock on the front part of the plastic under the bumper just a hair, and on the back side on the inner fender just a little.
