tire-wheels question

OK, so I have to get new tires soon, and I want to get bigger ones this time.
But I don't know how big I can go on the wheels I currently have.
My truck is currently sitting on 245/75R16.
so, how big can I go? or should I get new rims too? (sorry guys, no lift option this time)

Moderators, feel free to move this thread to the appropriate forum.
Thanks.

depends on how big you want to go. 31s,32,33s,44s. 285-75-16 will fit the wheels. prob rub while turning, as its a 33. 265-75-16 should fit with no rubbing. I put my jeep wheels and tires on once to see how it looked, with a 15x10 and 33 1250s. they looked pretty good, but rubbed at full turn. my truck is stock also.

265/75/16 is probably your best bet. its roughly a 31.5-32 inch tire. Fits with out rubbing at all

I got 265/75/16's right now and have no problems what so ever. 285's will fit with a t-bar crank.

Thanks for the answers, dudes! That helps a lot.
I saw the pictures of your trucks too, and the 265/75 look awesome!. Very proportionate and it's just the look/height I want to go for.
Thanks again.
