Tire Talk - Another one, I know - Stock F350

Had the truck now for about 2 weeks, can't look at the stock Michelins any longer (275/65/20). I've got the F-350 CCLB SRW King Ranch.

Right now I am considering just swapping them out for the BF A/T KO, in the factory size, which I can get out the door for under $1,300. The other option is the Goodyear Duratrac, about the same price.

Obviously the more aggressive tread will give a better look, but still concerned about all the open space in the wheel well.

I know everyone's answer will be to go with a front end leveling kit, and some bigger tires - but wanted to see if anyone had any photos of any AT tires in stock size on the stock wheels.

Trying to keep the cash outlay to a minimum, given the recent truck purchase.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I put Duratracs on mine- they look good and work well in the snow and highway. The BF A/T is not as good in the snow.

I ended up pulling the trigger on the BFGs in the stock size.

Living in South Carolina, snow traction really isn't a top priority, however the BFGs I had on my Jeep WJ did pretty good in the snow the dozen or so times that I had it in the NC mountains during the winter.

Surveyor13 - is your truck leveled? Your front end seems to sit higher then mine - I'll try to post some pics of mine later today.

No leveling kit. It's stock height. Maybe it's because it's a long bed it doesn't show the typical downward stance from back to front.

Mines a long bed too - check the pics - notice the bottles of water on top of tires, to show the scale.

I have the snow plow prep package on my truck. I got it from a dealer in the Pittsburgh PA area when I was living up there. All of the trucks come with it on them. I think it comes with a stiffer spring up front which makes it more level. I think at least.

I'll do the same water bottle trick tomorrow and post pics.
