I've got 315's on mine with a 2" level on the front . Slight rub , only on hard turns .

My LT285/75RX18 Toyos are 34.8" tall and no rub...but I have a 4" lift.

The offset is +18 to avoid an inside rub. It looks like I have a lot of room at full steering lock with that offset and width tire but I think a 315 would be pushing it with a stock offset.

315 is the width, not the height.

But, theres guys running 305/60s on 2wds without much issue...on the 2nd gen anyway.

If you want some wider tires on your truck, look into getting some wheel spacers
