id say 31" tire is your maximum. id go with a 30" though cuz im sure youve got some sagging. you can put that tire on any size rim you want as long as it doesnt interfere with the brakes and you can find a tire that will fit over the rim.

i had 30's on my 99 2wd truck and i say i couldnt go any bigger.

i had to cut the mud flap on one side to stop rubbing.

30's will go very good tho

well, the fenderwells are completely different from an 86 and a 99, also his has ibeams while yours was an A-arm suspension, so the stock ride hieght is completely different


IMO, the easiest way to know is to messure the distance from the end of the fenderwell to the center of the rim, so you can see how big of a radius you can squeeze in, times that by 2 and you have the diameter of the tire you can run... I wouldnt go for the maxium size that fits, but accouple sizes down to prevent rubbing
