Re: BFGoodrich Tires on 2006 Escape, Sizes please
It'll take some time, but go to BFG's website and check out some larger sizes in a 16" rim. Each tire should specify the recommended wheel width. I wouldn't go wider than a 245 tire. If there's a 245/75R16 it should fit with minimal rubbing (you might have to trim some plastic around the front wheel wells). I'm not saying it's a good size to go with, but going to a 245/75R16 will give you an extra 1.5" in diameter (your OEM tires are 29" tall). Check this site out: Tire size calculator
It allows you to compare your OE tire size with a larger tire.
I'm sure other folks will chime in with their suggestions but again, I don't think going larger than a 245/75R16 would be wise without other alterations, such as a lift.
