Take a tape measure from the center of your hub out 15.5" and see where your at as far as wheel well clearence then measure your existing tire width and. Turn the wheel all the way in either direction and measure clearances

We had a costomer running 265/75's which are basically 31s with no lift and he never complained of rubbing. That was with stock rims.
