What are the biggest tires that will fit?

I have a 04 F250 CC 4x4 with a leveling kit. What is the largest tire I can fit with an 18 inch rim on my truck? I was going to go with a 305/65/18 BFG. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

is the 18" wheel stock or aftermarket? that size is about as big as i would go... youll more than likely hit the leaf springs when turning

Here's my stock height 2005 with 325/65/18s...basically a 35X13.50. ProComp Xtreme AT tires btw...

Rub just a tad at full lock, but other than that, they fit great. Never had a rubbing issue while offroad either.

I would think that you would have to consider what type of leveling you kit you are running. Is it an add a leaf, shackle, spring pack, or completely new leafs? It seems that max tire size could differ depending on the size of the leveling kit you are running since leveling kits seem to run between 1.5 inches to 3.5 inches. Just something to think about.

You can prety much put 35's on any of the stock superduty's but you might have to space out the bumper with a leveling kit you should be just fine to run 35's coil or leaf front end Most people get the tire rub on the back side of the fender well just depends on wheel back spacing.
