31 x10.5 inch tires should fit without any mods
Any wider or taller might rub at full turn

there's "best FIT"....

and then there's also what your motor can handle depending on gearing.....if you've got 3.73s you should be okay

anything less and your truck will be doggin to get moving

Even with 3.73s it'll be a dog going up hills on the interstate if you run 31s. They will fit fine though. Mine just barely rub at full lock to the left while reversing and thats only because I'm running a 3.75" backspacing.

28s aren't much bigger then stock size, 30s would look great especially if you don't want it to look stuffed.
