Tire and Wheel Combo.. Will it fit? Recomendations

Hey everyone, I have an 03 7.3 with a pro comp 4" lift (somehow got closer to 5 out of it tho, installed may 2012) and have been running stock rims and tires since may when it was installed. Now that I finnaly ran across some money its time to change that.. Ive been looking at tires, wheels, and tire and wheel combo sets. So far Im pretty set on the Mickey Thompson Classic III wheels in 16x10 with a 4.5"bs, and as far as a tire I was looking at the goodyear duratrac in 315/75/16 which is almost a 35" if im correct..

First question is will this all fit? and also will these tires/wheels stick out of the fenders at all, if so how much? I want them to stick out a little bit, should i go with a 12" wide rim?

16X10 8X170 Classic III- Mickey Thompson Wheels

Thanks for the help

They will fit easily, but I think they will look small. I'd go with at least a true 35 or a 37.

I've got about 4.5" of lift on my 2003 with the same size tires and wheels. This should give you a pretty good idea of what you're in for. There are more in my profile, some are on the 365 Toyo, some are 315 BFGs. All are on the same lift.

Oh yeah, a 1" or 1.5" spacer between the bumper and the frame really helps things out.

The only 36 tall tires I've seen are 15.5 wide

Here's a couple of close ups, decide for yourself, I'm thinking they don't hang out much at all.

Im just wondering if I would run into issues with a 12" wide wheel? I wouldn't mind them hanging out a little more, but nothing crazy
