New Tires

Hey guys, I need a little help here. I need to know what size is the largest "best fitting" tire I can put on my '08 F250 without rubbing/causing any problems. I have the 17" rims. I am looking to get something a little taller/wider but dont want to install a lift kit. Thanks for the help!

How wide are your rims and what is the back spacing on them?

You can get away with a skinny 35" tire, but your best bet is a nice wide 33" tire
