Tire size choices for 15x10

O.k. may pick up a set of 15x10 Beadlock rims. What tire sizes are available that are bigger than a 33 that would fit so 34 and 35 but in metric and how wide can I go? I know it is a really broad question so just high level. I am currently running 255/85/16s on stock alloys and have a 3 inch lift so the tires look a bit undersized not to mention I stuck some wheel spacers behind the rims.

Jeff,
Thanks you. I have been seeing 35x12.5X15. I think a 315 is the same as a 35 help?

I usually go to National Tire and Wheel http://www.ntwonline.com/All-Tires.html and use their tire search tool. It is easy to use and will give you an idea of what your choices are.

I guess the definition of "fit" should be defined.... Any of the 34 or 35" tires need some mods to clear (trimming and/or compression travel limits).

fit

True - I do have a set up for the travel and wheel well fit but very good point.
