I have a 1998 Ram 1500 Sport with stock rims and stock suspension, how large of a tire can I put on it without any additional modifications?

The biggest you can go is a LT 285/75/16 but you will get alittle rub on your lower control arm when you turn your wheel all the way to full lock, but nothing to worry about I ran that size on my 1996 1500 4x4 for a while until I had it lifted.

my friend has those tires on his stock 95 short bed on the stock 16X7's and he also has only a little rub on the control arm. nothing major though

Yeah I had that problem too, actually it would just be better to get a 16x8 cause the factory rims offset isnt that great and a 285 should be mounted on at least a 8"wide rim. When mine were on the factory 16x7's it put alot of stress on the tire and rim.
