Re: Largest tire on a stock F250

What is the largest tire you can run on a stock 250?

On a 2001 4x4, without lifting the front suspension or pushing out the front bumper or rubbing on the front end, then most folks can run LT285/75R16. Although the tire makers say you need at least 7.5" wide wheels for 285s, lots of folks run them on the stock 7" wide wheels with no problem.
A few can run LT295/75R16 without rubbing. Those are obviously too wide for stock wheels, but some run them anyway.
Almost nobody can run LT305/70R16 or LT315/75R16 without rubbing on the stock front end. So if you want to run tires that big, you'll need to invest in both wider wheels and a front end "leveling kit" or mild lift

Hey Smokey, Beg to differ here. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vulnerable.gif[/img] I am currently on my fourth set of LT305/ 70/16 with no lift, and no level, and no rubbing. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img] Remeber a LT305/70/16 is about the same diameter as a LT285/75/16 about 33 to 33.5 inches. the width is approx 1 inch more on a LT305/70 than a LT285/75 12.5 inches vs 11.75 . on some trucks with stock star pattern wheels they seem to rub, on the 99s and 00, and 01 with the ALCOA aluminum bullet hole rims they don't rub. I have a buddy with same year truck as mine and he has the 5 spoke pattern and he cannot run over the LT285.
to the original poster I am very happy with th e Maxxis Buckshot Mudders, I can get about 50K out of a set if i watch my pressure and keep them rotated every 5-7k
