Tire Size

Looking for some advice on tire size. I have an 03 f350 srw with the stock suspension and am looking at Toyo AT tires. Will the 315/75/r16 which is 34.6 inch by 12.3 inches fit or should I go with the 295/75/r16?

Any help would be appriciated.
Brandon

305/75/16 is a happy medium between the two..not sure if toyo offers these but the 305 is roughly the same as a 33/12.50...gets u up in the air a lil and still have plenty of clearance with the fenders

mdkallam,
Your right about the 305/75/16 being a compromise but toyo doesn't have that size in there AT tire at least. I would like to stay with the Toyo tires mainly because I like the dealer and the the quility for the cost is pretty good. I also forgot to mention that I would like to get the most height out of the tire as possible.

thanks
Brandon

you will need a leveling kit to fit the 315's I just put some 315-75-16 BFGs on my truck and they just fit with my leveling kit

Thanks bluestroker. I am assuming that the 315/75/16 would fit in the wheel well but would not allow the truck to turn because the tire would rub to bad. I wonder if there is a tire of about the same height but a smaller width that might work?
