Default 97 4x4 Max Tire Size?

Hey guys I read the chart and it says consult first so I wanted to know what was the max tire size on a stock 97 STX 4x4. I wanted to do 15x8 Mickey Thompson Sidebiters wrapped in 32x11.5 BFG KM2s. Either that or 16x8s with 265/75/16. Any info would be much Appreciated thanks.

-Joe

I run 31x10.50/15's just fine. 32's will rub slightly with out a lift as I remember.

Yeah that's what I kinda figured looking around on the Internet. I think 31s fill it out pretty well. Does anyone think the 265/75/16 would fit as it equates to a 31.6"?

I had those in a 15, they did pretty well, I've seen them in a 16, they won't disappoint
