tire SIZES for an 06 F350

Want to UPGRADE my stock tires that will be on my New Truck
The continentals just will not cut it!!!!!!!

Just looked at some Nitto terra graplers in a 285/60/18 but they appeared to be kinda short
Also Goodyear ATS they looked nice I believe they were a 285/70/16
Then there was the BFG M/T in a 35 inch tire they looked great [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img] but also have a great price!!!! Was told they will not rub and actually looked at a truck that was at the dealer that had them on it WAS an 05 NO LIFT appeared to be NO rubbing ?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Would also like to see some BFG AT/KO and ALSO the TOYOs was told they were both on NAT BACK ORDER does anyone know if it is both the TOYO A/T and the M/T

Would appreciate some feedback here! I dont do any offroading but need something aggressive enough to get me in and out of the barn in the spring when it gets soft
Really dont want to lift the truck would like something a little larger than stock that will wear well

If I could get away with the BFG M/T and get good wear the $$ may be worth it.

Thanks
Steve

Re: tire SIZES for an 06 F350

if goodyear made a 285/70-18 E ATS, I'd be all over that.
I'm ready to dump these conti's myself.

Looks like a 2wd to me. (especially after removing the FX4 sticker)

Re: tire SIZES for an 06 F350

watch the load ratings.
Most of the tires that fit are in the 2900-3000 lb range.

If you load up fully, you'll be pushing a little over the limit for the tires.

Re: tire SIZES for an 06 F350

To really open up your options, you need different wheels. 18's are relatively new, so the options are limited. All of the really big selections are on 16's, but you can get other things if you want a more unique look. The big rig look is catching on, and it really toughens up the look of the truck. A bunch of people here have them (me too, see pics below). Another factor is lift. To really get that bulldog look I think you are after, a little lift makes all the difference.

I know you want a cheap set of huge tires that will fit on your 18's an not rub, but frankly, even if you get the biggest things out there that will fit, you probably won't be happy after a few months.

I found the best thing to do was to search through tons of pictures on numerous websites until I found the look I really liked, then figure out what it would take to do that to my truck.

Re: tire SIZES for an 06 F350

Nice picks of your truck!!!!!!!

I dont want a huge tire just something that looks better than the weiners that come stock

I dont want to put a lift if I do it has to be small because I have to load and offload Hogs on accasion I have a popper that slides in the back if I dont want to pull a trailer!

I love the look of a huge truck but mine also has to be workable

Not really looking for a cheap tire just trying to get the best bang for the buck!

as you said I have been looking at pics and boy there really are a lot of nice rigs out there but what I do to the truck after I get it will depend on the cash available I guess?

Thanks for the info

Steve

Re: tire SIZES for an 06 F350

I hated my goodyear ats, poor winter and wet traction and got really noisy when they started to wear. My BFG KO's are much better and Bridgestone are even better yet, by far.

I am running 285-65-18 on my 2005 on Eagles 178's
