what is the largest tire that will fit on a stock, none lifted s10?

I have a 95 regular cab s10, just wondering how big I could go with the tires since the stock ones look tiny as hell.

4x4's front tires stick out 1/4 in more than the 2wd. so you can put the larger tire on there without it rubbing as opposed to a 2wd
