I believe 33" is the "safe" number since each brand is slightly different.

I have an 01 4*4 ex and I have 305/70/16 Goodyear duratracs. If I have the wheel cranked all the way there is evidence of the tire just touching the inner fender.

These things are rock solid. I tow around 9k with my enclosed traile and I dont have a problem. They are load range E tire but max air pressure is only 65 psi. I have been on two long trips over 600miles each and they have been really good.

So you're on stock wheels too? Pic is kinda far away. This is my first try with the Duratracs - but nearly everyone I've read about loves em. Mine are LR E's also and I have 65 in em for now - but will go to 75-80 in the rears when towing. Had em for a month now -we'll see how they do...and next time I'll try the 305's.

Bpayton sorry to get off topic but do you have a picture that shows how far out the tires com in relation to the fenders with your wheels? I am considering 16x8s with 315s and yours would be a good indicator of what I would be dealing with.

Is that a fully stock excursion and do the 315's hit anything when turning hard or have a lot of suspension articulation?

In those photos, I have a stock rear set up and the front is lifted 2'' with the level kit - see below. The front tires rub the rear of the front leaves, but not annoyingly so IMO.
