Rim and tire questions

My 08 SD is stock and I do not want to lift it, but I want to fill the wheel well and get bigger wheels and rims. I have 265/70 R 17 pirellis on the stock rims. So what do you all think about the size I can go with out rubbing? Thanks for any info you can give

You'd need to say what kind of rim your going to look at. Something with stock offset is going to work fine on a 35 inch tall tire, but if you go something that sticks out a ton, you might not be able to fit 35s without a leveling kit. Just need an idea of specs on wheels you want, to better answer your question.

Waiting to install: Icon TEI Spacer, Icon 4-Link, OUO Traction Blocks, 35" Toyo MTs on 20x10 BMF Novakanes, Spearco Intercooler, Polished IC Pipe, EGR Delete, Polished Intake Elbow

I am open for sugjestions... I might go alittle wider. I will put a set of fender flairs but do not want the tire to go outside of the flair

325/60/R20 BFG all terrains will fit, would look damn good on stock 20s too or whatever wheel you choose.
