    A 285/75/16 or a 33x10.50-16 is the biggest, in my opinion, that you can fit on a stock height truck.

    I dont think it will but its different with any vehicle because they are all shaped differently and some rub more than others with the same tire sizes. And if it does rub, you can crank your torsion bars up a bit to raise the front of your truck up to stop the rubbing.

    Yes, you'll have to get your wheels re-aligned after cranking your torsion bars.
