Im a new member;

A 285/75/16 (32.7 x 11.30) should be fine on the factory wheels but may require a little trimming of the lower valance or a adjustment of the torsion bars

If you trim the lower valance you can fit 305/70 R16s on the stock rims. You cannot rum much more than 25 psi or you will get over inflation wear. I ran a set of BFG MTs on the stock rims with no rubbing after the trim. Actually I removed it because of my winch.

I ran the 285/75/R16 BFG TA KO's for a couple years on my 99 no rubbing or trimming required.
