I figured i would throw an end all be all in here to settle the age old question "what tire size will fit".
This is my personal opinion and experience, taking into consideration measurements of the wheel well with the cab mount in mind.
You do not have to follow this chart if you have plans to upgrade relatively soon to getting a bigger tire size as it may not be of major importance if that is your plan.
However, it can give you an idea of what will fit with what in regards to tire size and lift with no cutting/molding.

Stock tire sizes (fits regardless of lift size)
17" wheels - 265/65r/17
16" wheels - 265/70r/16


Largest tire without lift (preferred)

16" wheels - 265/75r/16
255/80r/16
17" wheels - 265/70r/17
255/75r/17

3" lift and/or leveling kit

16" wheels - 285/75r/16
255/85r/16

17" wheels - 285/70r/17
255/80r/17

Good info.

In addition to tire size, wheel offset/backspace will factor the question of "will it rub?"

In some cases, offset and backspacing can cause you to rub as it changes the angle that your tire meets the wheel well, I realized this when I added spacers to my stock TRD pro wheels.

This is a reason I did not get into those topics as it can vary really depending on how you want your truck stance to sit etc. this is just a safe way to be sure of proper fitment

So, running stock wheels on my ‘16 SR 4WD, any guidance on how large a tire I can run without rubbing? It’s got P245/75/R16 on there now and I am looking at swapping for some Goodrich TAs.
Thanks!

Refer to the chart for without a lift and 16" wheels. you could go with 255/80r or 265/75r

I've read a couple guys have done it with no cmc and just trimming some plastic. Ive been researching the same set up. Many upgraded their upper control arms to get max caster to push the wheels forward enough to clear the cab mount. Now the tricky part is matching that with the right wheel offset and back spacing.

I'm upgrading my stock tires to 285/75/16. Wondering if my TPMS (tire pressure monitor sensors) will work with the bigger tires or if I will need new ones?

Tpms has nothing to do with what tire you put on your car . So no worries

Thanks. I wasn't sure if they would work on tires that have higher PSI specs
