No Lift, Bigger Wheels/Tires???

Ok...so I am pretty much a retard on tires and wheels, so I need some help from those of you more in the know....I have no desire to lift my truck, but would like to put a little bit bigger wheels/tires on, something more aggressive than the Continental tires Ford blessed me with...what size wheels and tires would work with no lift? I know I want to get the black Rockstars, but other than that I don't know where to start so I can get to looking at pricing...all suggestions welcome!!

Thanks
Craig

You should be able to fit a 35x12.5 without a problem to start with.

If you want good prices on wheels and tires PM the sponsor on here AYPtires and if you do a leveling kit you can fit some 35s on there

According to his sig he has the plow package, so it should have the uprated front springs. He will not need a leveling kit to fit a 35x12.50 tire. His truck should have around a .5" difference in fenderwell gap from front to rear.

Thanks for the input guys....looking at wheels is starting to make my eyes water as I have no idea what lug pattern and offset I will need for my truck. Thinking I want to do 20x10 Rockstars - will these work with my current setup? Not really looking to go as big as the 35s, was thinking 33s. Just want a more stout look to the truck without sacrificing too much in the way of mpg....

you need a 20x10 with a 8x170 lug pattern.... a 35" tire on a 20" wheel looks really good... a 33 looks like a rubber band, but its all personal preference.... My vote is for a 35..... and the difference in fuel economy between a 33 and a 35 is unnoticable

The stock tire is 34" so a 35 isn't all that much bigger. Depending on what wheel you go with you might have some problems with the tire rubbing the radius arm at full turning lock. This will only happen if you go with a 12.5" wide tire with too much backspacing.
