235/75R15's are as big as you wanna go. Even a 30x9.50 will rub unless you install new springs. My splash has those and I tried to fit 30x9.50's and they rubbed bad!

im runnin stock front suspension and lower rear(removed a leaf) with 30/9.5 bfg all terrains.. they dont rub at all what so ever.. however im running aftermarket 15/7" aluminum rims that have a lil less backspacing than stock.

depending on the rear end gears ur truck came with, u will most likely want to go lower if u go 30" or bigger.
my truck came with 3.73 gears and i recently switched to 4.56 gears.. couldnt be happier
