Tire and lift size help!

I have a 1994 f-150 2WD. I'm wanting to get bigger tires for it. I plan on putting 16x8 aftermarket wheels and 265 75-r16 General Grabber AT-2's. Would a leveling kit be enough clearance for my tires so they wouldn't rub? Or would I have to buy a bigger lift on it? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks!

I'm sure you could get by with a leveling kit. It would most likely rub in the front without one

265/75 r16s are roughly 32 inch tall tires. Can't remember how wide but I am running the same combo on my f350. It will fit without the leveling kit but as The Drew mentioned will most likely rub. Leveling kit should get you there. I know a few people who got by with 33's on stock with new springs up front and a little bumper trimming and 33s are wider than the tire you want to run.

I personally would run a couple inch lift with 32 inch tall tires but I am the kind of guy who likes a little space between the top of the tire and wheel well vs the big tire in a smaller wheel well kind of look.

31x10.5's will fit with a leveling kit. Any taller/wider you run the risk of rubbing the radius arms at full lock or hitting the bumper valance, perhaps even the bumper. Your aftermarket wheel offset will play a role in preventing that.
