Help, opinions on this size fitting on my truck?

Ok, so the rims I'm getting has Nitto Terra Grapplers on them, and I want something more aggressive. I am thinking about Pro Comp Mud Terrains, but the size is what hurts me. I was hoping they had a 295/75/16, which equals out to be a tad bit over 33" x 11.50"... but they don't have those in Pro Comp Muds. So the next size I like is the 315/75/16, this is a 34.70" tall tire and a little over 12" wide. Will this fit or not? I hate to drop down to a 285/75/16, because they are almost as small as the 32's I just got rid off, and narrower. That leaves me with a 305/70/16, is that about the same as a 33x12.50? Feel free to express your opinion on tire brand and size.

whoo I got mentioned!

No they won't tear your fender apart. But they will rub on turns and **** depending on how much you crank your t-bars. Plus, for me, I'm already purchasing an RCD. I would prefer more lift with 35s.

Well I really like the look of Pro Comp XTerrains... they are 731 shipped off Ebay. That is 305/70/16.

Unless you plan on lifting it more i say go with the 305, those will fit fine and look badass!

Anyone have any input on the Firestone Destination M/T or the Hankook M/T? As far as tread life, wear, and performance?
