06 SUPER DUTY 6'' BDS LIFT MAX TIRE SIZE

Hey all on my 06 f250 i have a 6" 4 link bds kit with 35x12.5 17s the wheels are 9'' wide with a 4 " off set...the truck looks good but when these tires wear out i would like to go bigger.....the kit and peopl say that 37s will fit with no problems but im wondering if 38.5x14.5 17s will fit???....even if i have to space out the bumber some....has any one tried putting these tires on a similar truck??....i would hate to buy some and see that there is no way its gonna happen....

thanks

Dan

Welcome and where are you located in NY? Sounds a little tight to me but I don't know for sure.

I have 37"x14.5" Toyo All Terrains......they rub on the radius arms at full lock. They DID rub just a bit on the front or back of the fender well when the truck is leaned while turning...I trimmed the front valance and some off of the back plastic piece inside the fender well...and I think my front bumper is spaced forward about 1/2"-3/4" right now.

next time I'll prolly get a 37"x13.5" Mudd Terrains to create just a bit more room....IF I dont go with 35's.

I have 37x12.5's with BFG KO's. The KO's have a wider shoe print IMO. I trimmed the front plastic air deflector to keep from rubbing bad. At full steer I have rubbing at at bottom inner wheel well. Plan to trim that when it gets warm out.

It was 2400 for the kit with out shocks....i put procomp adjustable remote reseivor shocks they were 800 procomp traction bars 300 bucks 35x 12.0 17 pro comp xterains and wheels were 1500 i didnt buy the extra steering stablizers at first but i got so bump steer it was better after alignment but i got the bds dual kit so im running 3 stablizers.....the kit works great its not to bad to put in the hardest part is cuting the 7 5/8" rivits off the frame for the radius arm brackets.....also you will need a gear puller to get the huge piman arm off the steering box.....it does ride alot stiffer than stock but that might be my shock package.....one option is to get the kit with out rear springs and buy the fabtech spring hanger drops that will prolly make it ride better....also it could be from the traction bars but i havent removed them to find out
