Tire Sizes

Right now I have 265/75R16 BFG AT's and they are worn out so I am trying to decide on what size I want to go up to (I am also going to do a two inch lift in the future). I think the tires I am going to use are Interco TrXus Mud Terrains so I am trying to choose between 285/75R16 - 33x12.50R16 - 34x12.50R16. If I run one of those tires will I have any rubbing without a lift? Also since I am going to do a two inch lift what size should I use? And will a 12.50 tire fit on 16x7 rims for now; I am going to put on 8 inch wide rims later on.

285/75/16 will just fit depending on your backspacing.

The other sizes will require trimming.

Spring lifts do not affect tire clearance.

The 7" rim will be OK, but depending on backspacing you may have clearance issues inside the wheels.
