I had them on my '99 5.2 4x4 and they fit fine. I did have to do a bit of trimming to take care of rubbing when going over a bump around a semi-sharp corner. Other than that, they fit great, and looked great too!
Now, I've got 285/75/16's so they're actually pretty similar. I also have pics of these tires before I lifted my truck if you want to see.

You can see pics here:

I only had to trim for the front tires. A bit was trimmed off the back of the wheel well (an inch or two) and there's a corner in front of the wheel that I had to trim off (you should see if you look at it). It was nothing big though.

You only had to trim inside the wheel well though right nothing like outside the well like the fenders or anything like that and did you have your t-bars tightened at all? Thanks for all the help by the way

I didn't have to do any trimming that was really "noticable" unless you were specifically looking for it. As for the torsion bars, I did crank them a bit, but nothing major.
And hey, everyone helped me out, so I figure I should pass on the gesture :)

They are 16x8 American Racing Nitros. I think it's a good size rim for a 4x4 truck.

No sorry, I guess I didn't explain this all.
I had 33x10.5x15's on my stock rims (15x8) before
the lift.
I got the new rims and tires - 16x8 rims and 265/75/16 tires - and the body lift all at the same time.

I have 33x10.5 TSL Thornbirds, on a 97 4x4 Dakota I would suggest that you put on a 3in body lift first if you plan to ride even mild trails, you wouldn't want to tear up them new tires, or have to cut your inner fenders

So like i would get some minor rubbing regardless if i trimmed or not. See i plan to run these like mainly on the street but like maybe every other month or so i like to do a little wheeling, nothing too big though. So would I be safer just to run 32's and not really worry bout rubbing at all

Yeah, that sounds like a better idea. Some people have problems with 33's on a stock dak., but 32's fit perfect for everyone w/out a lift.
