    I would say a narrow 33 would fit. A buddy had a 3" on his w/ 33x12.50 on a 12 wide wheel. He rubbed some but not much, on the street.

    My dad had tall and skinny Buckshots on his, they were like 33 tall but real narrow. We had to (AH HEM) clearance the fenders and trim the bumper. Stock height, no mods.

    Finally I cut and finished the front fenders on a 1500 w/ a 3" B/L and 35x12.50s on 12 wides for a customer. I had to pie cut the fender, from the moulding down, push the lip back and welded and finished the fenders.

    Hope that helps.

    285-75R16 probably on stock wheels, which are 33" tall and about 9.5" section width from what I remember.

    You also don't seem to understand backspacing very well. You might have that confused with offset. Both of these depend on how wide the rims are.

    Backspacing = distance from inside of wheel to where they bolt up

    Offset = distance from the center of the wheel to where they bolt up.

    My 15x10s are 4.125 backspacing, which would be a 7/8" offest.
