1997 Ford F350 Tires

4x4, crew. I've got no intention on lifting it, but if I do I may do 4 inch and no more. What do yall reccomend for tires? I want an offroad tire, but I want decent wear life, good ice/snow peformance, and decent mpgs. I'm thinking I could run a 315/75/16, but I would take recomendations.

Anything Cooper is what I recommend. Cooper and Goodyear are the only thing that goes on my truck since those are the only tires left that are made in America. Cooper runs the AT/3 in 315 and those are great tire. Warranty to 55k. A little higher in price but they're made in America so worth it. I do not recommend buying Nitto tires unless you're Japanese and residing in Japan. Just my .02

mine just got a set of dick cepek mud country in the 315/75/16 almost a month ago. I can't comment on treadwear but they work great offroad in mud. work great onroad and on wet pavement. don't know about snow/ice but they seem like they would chew into snow really well. they do slightly rub the leaf springs in the front at full turn with not lift, spacers or anything. thats with the stock alcoas

Since yours rub without additional weight on the front end I'm running a winch bumper that weighs in at around 250, and I will be putting a winch that I reckon would run another 100+ pounds. Would it be wise to get 285's instead of 315's?

I'm running 285/75/16 Mickey Thompson MTX's on 95 F350 CC PSD - stock Alcoa's and stock suspension with no problem - occassional contact with rear edge of stock bumper when loaded and turning - prob not an issue with your aftermarket bumper. It's a D load tire but similar weight loading as many E load and seems to ride a bit better than others I have had and wears great.



I have Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 04 F350. 285/70/18 and really like the ride and appearance - only about 1k on them now but heard good mileage reports.

I would suggest going with the 315's. Are you 4.10?

As a longshot, I would like to hear how these work out on a 1 tonner although the load rating looks a bit low for someone who works their truck:
