Your best bet is to measure your truck yourself. It's really not that hard. That way you will know you are getting the biggest tires you can. It would be a huge bummer to rely on someone elses measurements and find they don't work for your truck.

I just got new tires and wheels for my '95 Sierra. American Racing aluminum Rallyes, 18 x 10's in back with 6.25" BS. The tires are 295/45's. 6" would have worked but I wanted room for "adjustment". I may end up making some 1/4" spacers for the back once I get the truck out this spring and have some driving time on the new set-up.
These fill the wheel well with about as much tire as you can stuff in there. The outer lips are trimmed.





I don't know how similar or different your fleet will be to my step so you should measure your truck to verify the numbers. I can walk you through it if you want.

With your 6" drop you have no room for error. The tall tires you are looking at NEED to be tucked just right to prevent rubbing. You need to measure the room you have between the inner bed and the fender lip, that will dictate how wide you can go with the tire. The distance from the wheel mounting face to the inner bed wall will dictate Back Spacing.
I really doubt you will have room for 315 back there with the drop. I could have stuffed a 305 into mine but that was leaving only a 1/4" clearance all around and the trucks do move side/side on the springs during a hard corner so that was just to close...

i don't mind lifting back up 2 inch i have the stock shackles just in case. i know there's a way of swapping the leaf springs from one side to the other and putting them in the inside of the chassis. then ill be able to run 14 wide but i didn't want to get that big of a tire...

Although my S-10 is not dropped, I'm able to run Hoosier 325's on 10" wheels with 5.5" BS and the bump-stops removed. You should be in better shape than me...

i might move the leaf springs to the inside of the chassis and run a 12in rim with a bigger tire and some tubs. that way i don't buy wheels twice! well see, ill deal with the stock with a 275 dr for now.
