265/75/16 if you don't want to do anything. If you want to add spacers OR a washer to your steering stop you can have 285/75/16

Im new to this... Can you link me to the spacers and other options to go for the 285?

And just to reiterate, i would like to try to use my 16" stock wheels with a 285/75/16 Duratrack tire.

Worst case im ok going with the reg. 225 etc

The 16" wheel is 7" wide. The 285 is 11" wide. Should fit ok considering many folks run 315s (12.5" wide) on stock 17s, which are 7.5" wide. Like jk said, you would most likely need wheel spacers. And, if you offroad and get into some semi-flexy situations, you will probably get some fender rubbing.

Anyhow, the spacers you need to look for would be something like these from Spidertrax.
