You should consider some Weld racing Typhoons 16x8 Then put some 315/70/16 Goodyear MTR's. Trust me, it will fit great and you'll get zero rubbing. You'll be able to mud bog it then finish the day off with a little rock crawlin. Don't worry, that 2wd will go far with some mean lookin tires. I hope you got the mean V6 in your truck.
Yeah, you'll get zero rubbing as soon as the tires bash the fenders in far enough that they can't hit anymore. Biggest tire that fits on the 4x4 without rubbing is 285/75r16s, and even those only fit on the stock wheels, on 16x8s you need to do a minor trim job. I think the 2wd trucks are even lower than the 4x4s, so the 315s would really rub on one of those... The 265s are your best bet, but I wouldn't be surprised if you get some minor rubbage on the lower back corner of the front fender when you hit a big bump witht he wheels turned.
