max tire size on stock truck

hey guys, my current tires are getting low on tread and i have a feeling i will need to replace them before i can afford to lift it since i will not have a job starting at the end of the month (enrolled in police academy, im not lazy or a bad worker) i currently have 265/75R16E tires on 16X7 stock wheels.

i would like to go bigger and not have to worry about rubbing or anything like that. any recomendations?

I've seen those on my buddies truck they look like a decent size. Wasn't sure if there were other options available. That converts to about 33" high correct?

I run 285-75/16 on my truck that is lifted with a leveling kit up front and a helper spring in the rear. Cost me less than $500 with 4 new shocks. Also just installed new Cooper ST Maxx 285's

but thats not the biggest 99-10 35 i think is the biggest without trimming but 37 will fit if you trim the inner fender Ive had 1999 f250, 2000 f350, 2002 f350, and now a 2010 f250 no lift on any of them but Ive always ran the military tires because they are cheap and hold weight well.

I think 35's rub the leaf springs at a full turn? So yes 285's would be tha largest with no rubbing issues. I could be wrong.
