Tire Size Change?


Seeing as how it won't be long until I have to replace the Goodyears that came with the truck, my question is, does anyone know if it's safe (or wise) to put larger tires on an 04 Sport Trac 4x4? Of course, the manual says no.

I don't want to lift it and put 36"ers on it. I would just like to have a wider and perhaps one profile taller tire than it came with. Say go from 70 to 65?

I know it's probably a dumb question, but I've never had a vehicle this complex or nice before. It's not an 88 Dodge Dakota, you know...(Thank all that's Holy!)

Thank you.

Re: Tire Size Change?

yes, that would be safe as long as you got the same tires at all 4 corners, but it'll throw off your speedometer (it'll make it read low by a few mph)

Thanks.
