Question tire &wheel question

i have a 93' ford f150, with stock rims and some snow tires the guy had on it.
i am looking at buying some bigger tires/rims i need to know if the tires i have picked out will work or not? im not to familiar with the sizing and how it works on vehicles so if someone could help me there that be great. but the tires are pro comp xtreme all terrain tires 315x75-16. im not entirely sure what size of rims i need that will work with those so thats why im posting. if someone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!! thanks

315/75/16's are 34.5" tall, so yeah, that's noticably bigger than 31's.

You'd have to ask more of an F150 expert than me to know if those will fit on your truck or not.

I think what it is with the 34.5" is that they would be rubbing the wheel well when you turn. You could probably put 2' body spacers on your truck or put a lift on it.
