Will these tires fit my truck?

I'm in desperate need of new tires and want the Nitto Trail Grapplers. My Rims are 16's but the problem is Nitto only makes 3 sizes for that rim.

265LT, 285LT and 315LT.

My current tire size is 265 and they look so small and I hate it plus I have a lot of room left in the wheel well. I'm running a stock height with a lifted rear suspension.

I want the biggest size which is 315's but will they fit? I also plan on putting a 2.5inch leveling kit in the front and it said the suggested size is 305's so can I make the 315's work with no problems?

The 285LT also comes in 2 different sizes.
285LT 122P-31.88" overall dia.
285LT 123Q- 33.03" overall dia.
315LT 124Q- 34.80" overall dia.

So which should I go with that will give me the biggest fit possible as I prefer the stuffed look. My truck is also a 02 F350 Lariat as in my sig.

I think the 315's will fit.

Will they rub? Does it matter if they do as will it cause damage to the truck or anything? The 315's offer the highest load cap which is a must for me so it would be a little disapointing if I can't get them.

Just FYI, 285, 305, ect.... are widths of tires in MM. 122p, 123q, 124q are load ratings, and have nothing to do with the diameter of the tire.

A 295/70r18 is taller and skinnier then 305/60r18. The middle # (70,60, ect...) is the aspect ratio of sidewall height to width.

Well thanks for the info. I'm kinda a noob in some areas and I recently got my dads truck and want to make it a off-road beast.

Here is Nitto's site. Do you mind telling me which 16" Rim tire is the best for a stock height with a lifted rear and with a 2.5" leveling kit in the front. I want the biggest in height possible as I like the stuffed look.
