Rim and tire advice....please!!

Looking at getting new rims and meats for my 04 250 6.0. I still have the factory 16" rims and 265's on the truck. I would like to know whats the biggest tire I can go with and Im planning on getting 17's(Moto Metal 955). Also what is a good mileage and good looking tire to go with. Id like to stick with a E rated tire. Kind of lokking at the Nitto Terra Grapplers. Any info or opinions would be great. Thanx

I'm not sure the Nitto's are available in E with a 17 inch rim. I couldn't even find them for my 18 inch rims. You should be able to stuff some 33's under there no problem or even 35's (4X4) with some minor rubbing.

Same question for my friend who has a '07 F250 longbed 4X4. Except he is going to keep the 16" wheel but wants to know what is the biggest tire he can get WITHOUT rubbing, in a BFG All Terrain?

Toyo MTs. I'm thinkin they would have an E rate in the size you're looking for. At least the 285/75/16s are E rated.

Your truck looks awesome.........I've been checking out the 951's and I think you just made my mind up. How you like the Nittos?
