    3/4 or 1/2 ton?
    There is a big diff.

    I have seen 3/4's with 35" stock and 1/2's with 33" stock

    Stock wheel size I assume?

    33x10.5R15's are about the largest that no one has had a problem rubbing.

    Increase the width, and typically they hit when cornering.

    Innumerable threads on this subject BTW.

    a little fender trimming in the front, the fronts would rub on the inner wheelwells at full steer while flexing. The rears would tuck up nicely:D

    Depends on your definition of "fit."

    To really screw you up what brand should be designated as well. The actual size of a tire varies between manufacturers.:doah:
