Wheels Question

Hey all. New to the forum and new to the powerstroke. I'm looking to put some 17x9 or 18x9 Maxx 8s on my truck with some either 285/70 or 33" Nitto or Pro Comps. I found a package deal I liked but a guy selling the wheels only said he just tried putting them on his new SuperDuty and the brakes rubbed. Also he mentioned something about the coil springs. Haven't heard anything about it on 05's and down. Anybody have any helpful advice for me on what will fit my truck or what might cause this problem. Oh yeah, mine is a 06 F250 SC FX4 PSD. Like I said, this is my first Diesel so I know nothing about them and have everything to learn. Thanks for any help I can get.

not sure why you would have a problem with that setup. I went from Gunner 8 18x8.5's with 33x13.50 tires (no problems at all) to the Gunner 8 18x10" rims with 35/13.50/18's with slight tire rub in the fender well when fully turned. I did run the nitto 33/13.50's without the leveling kit as well and it was not an issue.

Oh yeah,

Welcome to the site. I was in your shoes about six months ago, new to the whole diesel experience. There is a lot to learn about these trucks, for the longest time I was learning something new on a daily basis but will never own a gas engine vehicle again.

Wellcome to PS.org

you should really go with the 33" Nitto's to they are totally worth the money, they last forever, it was a hard toss up with the Toyo's or Nitto's, but you get what you pay for.

I like the nitto's, they look more uniform. The Toyo Open A/T looks just like the nitto with a modified center tread pattern.....they look ok but a little odd....
