265/75 r15 and 31 x 10.5 may fit
265/70 r15 should fit
30 x 9.5 will fit
255/75 r15 should also fit (same height at 30 x 9.5 but wider)
math to figure out size take first set (255) divide that by 25.4 and that will give you width (in inches) of tire then use the second set of numbers(70) and use that as a percentage against the inches of the width and it will give you height of the sidewall. times that by 2 and add the rim and you'll have the overall height.. let me know if that confused you
Very easy to lift your truck (t twist and shackles) cheap too...you would be able to fit 31 x 10.5 with no problem or any of ones listed above.
The torsion twist is for the front end. You twist up the torsion bar adjustment bolts, making the bar turn down which lifts the truck up. Do a search on torsion twist and you'll find plenty of info on how to do it.
The shackles are for the rear. You just get longer shackles that make the truck lift up. Again, do a search and you'll come up with a lot of info.
