32x11.5 will fit with some possible minor rubbing... 31x10.5 will fit without any rubbing

he has 16" rims those sizes dont work.

*IF* you want to stick with a 16' stock rim go with a 265x75x16. which unless you get cheapo tires they will cost more then buying some 15" rims and some 32's

so my personal opionin would be get some 15x8 rims with 3.75BS you can get a set of alloy's off ebay for around $275 OR a set of 15x8's rock cralwers you can usally get a set for like under $200 new.

then get some 32x11.5x15 tires with no rubbing. if you want to trim just a little on the front valance on the inner part of it you can get 33x12.5x15 to fit no problem.

285/75r16's. Put them on my truck with only a t-bar crank. Fit perfect and looked mean as hell for all-terrain tires. BTW the fender flares are off because one flew off on the interstate so i took the rest off, they did not rub the flares.

245/75r16 is a 31" tire.

A 3" body is very labor intensive but not that hard to do.

I took the bumper off because i put this on.



and here they are with the bumper on and they didn't rub the bumper either.
