Default Tire fittment question

So im planning on putting a 3" leveling kit on my 00 Silverado and am looking at different tire sizes.
My question is, what would be a better size to go with, 285/75/R16's or 295/75/R16's?
Sticking with my stock wheels.
Thanks

Stock tire size so the truck can still get out of my way.

285/75/16 = 32.8x11.2/16
295/75/16 = 33.4x11.6/16
Your gonna have a lot more options w/ the 285, there isn't that much difference between the both!

I had a 2002 sierra with 285 / 75/ R16's and those were about as big as you want to go. I would not go to 295's.

You can fit 285's on a stock vehicle w/o a lift as well.....
