I've got 35X12.50X15's on 6" of Skyjacker Spring lift and I can stuff my 35's NICELY. But going with 35X16X15's you're gonna be rubbing or damn near just sitting still I would imagine. My 12.50's are on 8" rims and I'd like to get a set of 10"'ers for it so they'll stretch out a little more. 16" on a 10" rim will make them bubble even worse than mine are. I'd stick with 35X12.50's or slightly larger if you plan on stuffing them really hard. But thats just me.
The "beast" in the readers rides section is running the same size tires on 15x10, but he is also 3" taller.The reason I'm asking is because I already have the tires off of another rig and I'm thinking of swaping them on before you guys go on your next run.
Being a mechanic and working at Sears where we install sets of 31's - 38's about 4-5 times a week (each size) I've personally put on 4-5 sets of 35X12.5X16's on the new body rams and have seen how close they come when at full steering lock. Its not to say that they will or won't work, but with those wide tires on the rims as narrow as they are (but still pretty wide in comparison to stock) I can predict some rubbing/stuffing problems. Thats all.
