315/75R16 on an E99?

had a blow out on my new truck so im just going to bite the bullet and buy 4 new tires. i want to go as big as i can. this truck wont be a daily driver. so what do i have to do to make 315/75s fit on this truck? the guy i bought it from said he upgraded the suspension but no lift. everyone else says it looks like a small lift. i know my old cummins fit 35s under it with no problem but i dont know if the SDs are the same.

This is my truck with 315/75R16. I have a 3" lift on it. The tires rub on the driver side skirting but a big ziptie through the factory holes to the body underneath and pull it back 1/2" is all that is needed to fix that. On smooth ground no rub left to right but turning down a grade the tires sometimes lightly rub the spring using stock wheels. Not enough for me to be bothered and I like the look of the stock wheels.

I have 315s on a leveling kit. Perfect on road but would rub like a mother if I went offroad.

Do u guys get alot of center tire wear on the 315s on stock rims? Or are there tires that are better for this and ones that are bad for this? Im gonna be doing a 3" hanger kit on my buddies SD soon and we were wondering if we should go to some 17x10" rims or stay stock

35x12.5 tires do fine on a 9-10" rim under than you may wear the centers..
