The correct offset/backspacing on the new wheels will prevent them from rubbing your leafs.

At this point, tire size is irrelevant, the proper sized wheel will enable a wider tire to fit better. Besides, a wide tire on a skinny rim 1. Makes said tire look thinner. 2. Tends to ride on the center of the tread when pressured up.

So, what rims are you using?

Now we're getting somewhere. Look at the pics of my truck in my profile, the BFGs are the same size you're rolling, but on a 16x10. You may not need tires to reach your objective, you may only need wider wheels.

Nice truck...I want something about an inch or 2 wider. .what would you recommend for that and to get enough backspace so that it wont rub?

If I wanted wider, then I'd go to a 325 or 355 on a 12inch rim. The problems are that they don't come in 16s, and I think that the 355s are 36 inches tall. Either way you need new wheels. Personally, I would have never mounted 315s on such a narrow wheel.
