Tires

Does anyone know wat is the biggest tire you can go with on a a NON lifted super duty it is a 99 so it does have front leaf springs. I was wondering if anyone knows where to get some resonable priced tires that have kindof some aggresive tread but are load range d the minimum thanks

Pretty much anything you find will be in load range D, if you can find Es, that would be better. I have run 305/75/16s in a stocker with no problems. If you get a leveling kit for the front, I am sure you could do at least 315s.

I ran 305/75 16 on mine with no lift. I have 315/75 16 now but I had to do 2 1/2 level kit in front and the left side rubs slightly on hard left turn but not enough to make want to lift it more.

I have 275/65R20's on my truck with no rubbing. That size is 34" tall. No lift or leveling kit either. Hope that helps

33 inch tire is about the max you can go with no problems. You might be able to go taller but not wide. 305x75R16 is equal to 33x12.50R16, I run 285x75R16 on my truck which are equal to 33x11.50R16. I prefer the 285 over the 305 because of price. Plus in snow the narrow tire works better. Plus the 285 is still wide enough for the mud I go through so I don't get stuck.

im also trying to decide what size tire i should go with...i have a 99 with the stock 8 or 9 hole rims. i love those rims. i also have a leveling kit.

im wondering, can i run the 33x12.5r16 (305x75r16) on the stock rim?

does it look kinda cheesy?

any reason to choose the 305x75r16 over the 33x12.5r16 eventhough they are equal?

I used to run 9.00x16's on my 99 which are 36" tall and 9 wide. I didnt have any lift but the truck did have X code springs and some fender trimming. I also ran 37x12.5x16.5's on 16.5x9.75 rims with more fender trimming.

thank you for the quick reply
can't see one reason or another, except in general, more agressive off road tires are in the 33XxxXxx and more "streetable" for lack of a better term, all terrain and just plain ole' street tires are found in the 305/xx/xx sizes.
