315's. . . yes or no. . .

I have a 2000 F350 4x4 with the leveling kit up front and I'm off to buy tires in a few hours. The 315's are just a little more then the 305's so I want them if they will fit.

315's Yes or No?

There have been other threads and everyone says that the 315s will clear with just a leveling kit

I do apologize for not searching.

315's should fit fine with a leveling kit. Depending on the brand - their roughly 34.5" tall and 12.5 wide.

305's are roughly 32.8 tall and 12.5 wide (again, depending on brand). I run 305's and just had a 2" add-a-leaf front and rear installed - I think it looks good with just 305's - 315's should be fine too!

i have both 295's and 305's for my truck, and even with the leveling kit there's no way that 315's will work without rubbing. I suppose if you never leave the road then they'd be fine, but for any kind of articulation it would rub like crazy.

No off roading what so ever. It pulls my jeep to those off road places with a truck camper in the bed. That is the heaviest load she pulls.

I have 4.11s and the main goal of the bigger tires is to lower that gear ratio for winter holiday travel and that it will look freekin sweet!

The set I'm looking at is Nitto Terra Graplers.

35's are not well suited to a leveling lift. Go at least one size smaller. I had success in performance and looks with 285s on a leveling lift.
