Super Duty guys help me out with Tires

Guys: 2002 F250 SuperDuty. Has stock suspention. How large a tire can I put on here? Some guys at work say 315/75s. Any ideas from anyone that has done this?

Re: Super Duty guys help me out with Tires

I'd stay under a 35" tire....if you go bigger you'll want to upgrade to a lift or stiffer suspension so the tires don't rub the frame when driving over pitted roads. Planning to upgrade the gears too I hope! I'm guessing you want to go with aftermarket rims? If so, with the right offset 315's should fit without rubbing at full turn.

315's should run without any problems depending on how much the front end sags if any. if it does sag i would atleast level it up you can find kits on ebay anywhere from 80.00-300.00
