265/75/R16 with no rubbing. Thats what Im running on my 97 F150 with no problems. You might even be able to get away with 285/75/R16, I'm thinking about 285s for my truck, and was asking around, and I was told I could getaway with 285s with minimal fender modifications if any. Hope this helped.

Default tire size

You should be able to run 285/70/16 easily on a 4WD. I run 265/70/17 all terrains and have plenty of room on my 2WD.
