Tires and wheels question

I currently have 265x75x16 tires on stock wheels. A guy I work with has some 295x75x16 BFG AT on some plain nothing fancy amwerican racing wheels. He had them on a dodge 2500 and he thought that they should work on my 250 along with another guy we work with who also thought the wheels would work but they dont. His wheels are 16x8 were my wheels are 16x7, my question is do you think it would be safe to mount those tires on my stock wheels. Oh and so theres no confusion im not talking about tire clearence but lug nuts wont line up with the holes on the wheels.

I would think that if it was not safe then a tire shop would probably refuse to mount them for ya outta liability.

I think 295's should fit on your rims fairly well. I don't know what the limit would be before you run the risk of rolling the tires off the rim, but it won't be much over 295. If you have the molded mud flaps on the front, there maybe some minor rubbing whenever you turn the wheel hard to the left or right. I ran a set of 285 75R16 on stock 16 inch rims for my '99 and they did just fine except for the rubbing issue. Hope this helps.

some tire shops will refuse to mount them so you might be better off just taking the your wheels and tires off the truck and taking them in and have them swap them out so they don't have to see what it goes on and you will fine with that size tire on your truck but you mite have minor rubbing up front but there again it verys truck to truck..
