Default '86 2wd wheel/tire advice

I'm thinking of buying a 1986 2wd f150, 302, auto. I have a good set of (almost new) 275/60/15 tires wrapped around 15x10" rims. Will this wheel/tire combo rub at all on that truck?

Also, the truck is a style side / fleetside. I have a stepside bed I would like to swap to the truck. I'm guessing it would be a direct bolt on swap, but any issues there I should be aware of?

Time is a factor!! Quick responses are Greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks,
d

Alrighty where to start here

Tires - yeah, they'll fit. You may rub a tiny bit on the radius arms, but with 15x10s the chances of that are slim to none.

Bed - The bed will bolt right on if the new truck is a short bed. Fuel filler necks are different, bumpers are different. But that's about it really

Thanks Sean, I really appreciate the info. It seems I have a decision to make concerning my truck. I have an '82 f150 stepside, 4wd, 300 and a 4spd. Yesterday I found a deal on craigslist on an '86 f150 fleetside, 2wd, 302 w/ automatic in (almost) identical condition as my truck. I've always wanted a stepside V8 street rod, so I'm considering buying the '86 and swapping out the parts I wanna keep from my '82 to the '86 and selling the '82. I'm just having a hard time giving up my transfer case,..ya know?..lol. I don't really "need" it, but I just like knowing it's there if/when I do need it.

Anyone ever heard of a 4wd street rod? Maybe this question should be my next post..lol.
Thanks again man,
