Depends who you ask, you got guys that will consistantly say that OR I can tell you this...



No Lift, No Rubbing = 265/75-16
Minor Rubbing, T Bar Crank & some chevy shackles will lift the truck probably 1.5-2'' max, with little work, you can get 285/75-16's


Heres a picture of each:


265's:

Best bet is to get an old gallon milk jug and punch a couple holes in the bottom.. and duct tape it to your oil filter mounting. That way you can do cool burnouts every time you stop at a stoplight...
