...Which will mount to an otherwise stock truck?
...Or just the largest tire you can run on a 16x7 (or whatever your OEM size might be) rim?
Well if you are just keeping the truck stock then a 265 75 16 is the biggest you can go without any rubbing. That is the size I am using, with no problems. Any larger and you would need a lift and possibly new wheels with a different offset.
255/85/16 it sounds like with no lift aka stock.
The jury is still out some say it will work some say needs the pinch weld pinched. I am curious if it depends on the years?
I have 285s on a stock 17" wheel. So the rim itself will handle at least 285s. But I have a 2.5-inch (give or take) lift and had to put on wheel adapters to avoid rubbing.ok, next question is, what's the widest tire you can go on the stock wheel - again, my stock tire is the 265/70/16? thanks again.
Yup. In a compression turn they are just shy (like millimeters) from touching the mud flaps/fender flares/etc.If you are talking stock rims on an unmodified suspension, the biggest you can go is 265/75-16s.
Probably not, because you can run 265s without rubbing the UCA, so 255's should be no problem. But if you go to a bigger diameter, you might run into rubbing problems with the wheel well and adapters probably won't help you there.would I need to get wheel adapters to run 255/85/16s? I am going to put the bilstein 5100's and want to throw some bigger tires on but would like to avoid wheel adapters
