that size is essentially a 35. your going to need a lift.

Yes you will need to lift your truck for those tires bro.

Yes you will need to do something to the trucks height to fit those 315/70/17s. You should be able to get by with a leveling kit since they are not a full 35" tire. You will need some wheel spacers as well to avoid any rubbing on the suspension components

Hey guys, I know im coming in way late in this conversation, but after reading all of your post I got alot of my questions I have had for a year answered. The bad part is that I just ordered Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 for my truck. I ordered 275/60/20 and they will be going on my American Racing 20" Chrome wheels I got for them. I do have a Rough Country leveling kit installed 2.5 (front) 1.5 (rear). I didnt realize I could put a bigger tire on after installing that leveling kit. Will the tires and wheels I have still look good because they are the stock 20" size? Im worried about this now after reading everyones post. Thanks for your input.

Yeah they're going to look a little small since it's a stock tire size on non-lifted trucks.

Hi,

I can't seem to find out info about tire size for my truck.
Right now I have 2006 4WD 3" body lift with stock size nittos
I understand I can fit 35's on them, but I would like them to stick out a little bit, I guess that would be called the negative?
Can you explain what size tire I need to buy, to give my truck the most aggressive look with them sticking out a little.
Going with Toyo Open Country with 17 or 18 American Eagle Alloys.

Then..here is another issue
What size would I need if I add a 6" suspension lift on top of the body lift.

Thanks for the help!

By adding a 6" kit on top you could easily clear 37s or bigger. The thing with the tires sticking out past the fenders really depends on the wheels and the backspacing or called offset. Anywhere from -12 to -20 negative offset or around 4.50 backspacing will stick the tires out a couple inches past the fender. Plus when you lift your truck higher you'll need some extra backspacing to clear the suspension components or some spacers for your current wheels.

I have a stock 2006 1500 4X4. Do you think I can run 285/70/17 with no rubbing problems?

275's are not the max width you can run. I bet you can run a 285 section width tire on the stock wheels with no rub given your leveling kit. I also am certain you can go up to a 70 aspect ratio, just a bit taller than you have, and still not rub in the front. Beyond that, a different wheel with a different offset will be needed if you want to go to a wider tire. Also, anything taller than a 70 series tire will need a lift.

I'm running 285/75X18's on a wheel with +18mm offset and a 4" lift. those tires are 34.7" tall.
