According to several car forums a 275/45R16 is the widest tire that will fit.

knowing the width of your existing tire you can reach your hands behind the tires with front wheels turned lock to lock and you can guesstimate how much space is there. Any additional width you add to that is divided by 2 on the inside where it may rub. Tire rack has the widths listed for the tires they sell.

I had 285/75R16's on my 02 F150 that no one said would fit without a problem using this method and they are giant tires comparatively. On that truck the one spot to check is the driver side wiring bundle along the frame. Ford didn't tuck it in well which you can do yourself.

Need to know how tall you want them to be.

You'll probably more limited by what tire sizes you can find.

255/65R16 is the most common size I've seen that is wider that is close to your current overall diameter. The 16" wheel is limiting. Here's a list of tire sizes TireRack has for 16" wheels:

Do you want truck tires, or P-Metrics?

I think the 285/65R16 would be fun laugh
