I am guessiing 285's are about the biggest without rubbing at all....I have a friend that had 33-12.50-16.5s on his and we had to trim the flares and mudflaps a little... but we did get it to wear it rubbed very little and it only did it when turning sharp.

The front end will probably be your biggest obstacle. I know it's mine. My front springs are starting to sag just a bit so my BFG 33x12.50's on 16.5 rims rub the flares at full lock steering.

Good luck

Same here, want to put the 2" Skyjacker springs on mine, but sounds like it's going to be a big deal to do so.

I've a 87 150 with a 2" add-a-leaf... 33 12.5 will fit but I run 32 11.5 15 and they only run a bit on sharp corners and with no trimming.
