Tire Size

Hi all been reading for a long time just haven't posted.
Was wondering if 315 70 17 bfg all terrain (oem h2 tire) would fit on the factory 17 inch wheels
Would like to avoid lifting if possible
2006 f 250 cc fx4 sb
Any help is appreciated

yes the 315's will fit but to make it fit the best do a leveling kit and you shouldn't have a problem..

Raul,

You're so stealth that we can't even tell where the tire ends and fender opening begins!

Tyreboys_demaxin or any one else

Any clue what a price for a set of 4 might run,I have done some looking on ebay and it appears between $900 and $1000. The local tire shop is a little higher. Thanks

I got my 315-75-16 Maxis Buckshot mudders for about $750 at a local tire shop about a year or less ago. They rub the leaf springs when I turn and do not handle near as good as the 285-75-16 Wal-Mart Liberators that I had before, I put about 65,000 miles on them for $400. I have factory 16” rims.
