They won't during normal driving but if you ever offroad you will. You also won't have to fully crank your bars so the ride will be better. 32s look great IMO.

265/75/16's would be a decent upgrade. No Rubbing. Lots of guys have moved up to this size.

Next biggest is 285/75/16, which is a 33" equivilent. Daily driven this should be fine with a T-bar crank, again lots of guys running this size, but if your flexing your truck off road alot you might get some rubbing going on.

Let us know what size you pick, and post some pics when you get em!

crank the T bars and you'll be ok with a 265. a 285 will work, too.

I suggest 265/75r16's if your keeping your stock wheels...or stickin' with 16's. I ran 265's when i was stock for a long time...loved it. they looked big. but not too big. I ran 285's with no rub either, but....i'd throw flares sometimes out wheelin'. Still do. lol.


I see someone painted their center caps....jealous. I need to find all mine and do it. lol.

Kicks and giggles....since i'm a pic *****....my truck on 265/75r16's...

If you are not wanting to max you t-bars go with 32's. I have 32's and had to trim my valance w/ 15x10's.
