Largest tires on a stock 4wd

Well, its about that time.... time for new tires. Ive got a 94 f350 crew cab long bed, and im trying to find what the largest size tired i can go with, without too much rubbing. I do NOT offroad the truck, it hardly ever will see any weight in the bed, and the trailer it tows on a weekend-basis has a tongue weight of about 500lbs at the most. Overall, I really didnt need a 1 ton, but the price was right. I use the truck pretty easy.

So what have you boys figured out? Whats the largest tires you can throw on a stock-height OBS f350?

I've got a 96' f-350 cc lb gasser , I'm running 33's with no prob. and it DOES get off roaded . I think 35's would come real close to fitting, but you might rub a little. Anyway, I'm no expert, just my opinion. hope it helps a little, and good luck

ive got a stock 2wd f350 and just put 33/11.5-18s on, with very minor rubbing on pass bumper. i dont know how much higher a 4wd sits but i would think you could fit 35s with the right backspacing
