There is an entire thread about tire size/lift options for various years.

In general, without a lift, the max you can use is 33x12.5 on the original 15 inch rims. They'll rub a little bit on the radius arms at full lock, but won't do any damage. If you increase the rim size to 20 inches I have no idea what the limits would be.

Im running 34.5x12.5 on 17" wheels. Are there aftermarket radius arms that would fit a stock suspension and not rub?

It’s not just about tire size and rim size.....back spacing really matters too don’t forget that.
