Truck Tire Help

I am wanting to put new tires on my '99 Dodge Ram 4x4. It is stock (ie, no lift or anything YET). I've been looking into a 3" body lift simply because of the price difference between that and a suspension lift. My current tires are 265/75/R16 (I think it's R16).

My question is, what's the biggest and 'fattest' tire I can put on my truck WITHOUT having to buy new rims. I want some decent tires with some tread, and want bigger than 285's if possible, and I'd like to get them a little wider. However, I dont wanna sink a fortune into tires and rims for no more than I actually drive it. Is there a decent tire I can get that will make my truck look a little more 'appealing' than simply 'stock' and too low like it does now? Thanks for the help.

try a leveling kit, its a 2 1/2" spacer that goes on top the front coil and cost around $150. not sure what the metric size is but with the leveling kit u can easily fit 33" and think even 35"

plus it looks alot better when its sitting level and not 2 1/2" low on the front
