tire size?

I'm looking at buying some new tires right now i have 265/75's on my truck what is the biggest tire you can fit under these trucks with out lifting them? whats the biggest tire you can fit if i buy the leveling kit? I've heard you cant fit 35's but they rub a little. i was thinking abut getting 33x12.5's for mileage but i don't know yet. just wanted to what you could and couldn't fit. thanks for any imput

My dad has a 00 2500 4wd. We put a leveling kit on w/315/75/16 (35x12.50x16)and it looks good.

the 33's will clear but the 35's will not. leveling kit will clear the 35's with some light rub in tight turns. I am getting ready to add my leveling kit so I can put on my 35 mudders

315/70/16's won't rub on aftermarket wheels.

Also if your looking for mileage, go with a skinnier tire, it has less rolling resistance than a wide tire.
