how big of tires on 99 DRW

does anyone know what the largest size tire is that will fit on a 99 f350 dually. i just got rid of a truck that was lifted so i dont want to even put a level kit on . also, i am trying to not let the tires touch in the rear. i have been doing some searching on the forums and some people say 265/75/16 will fit. is this true? how do these compare as far as hight and widith to my 235/85/16.

My mom runs 265/75/16 on her dually and has no problems. I personally think it looked better when the 235's were on it. She wanted more width so went with the 265's they are a little shorter than the 235's though.

no you don't. I run 265/75/16 on my rig. I have never had a problem with the back rubbing and I've had numerous trailers and weight in the back.



Here's a pic thatll give you an idea

Personally I would go to 285x75R16, but that is my personal opinion.

the 265's will work with out spacers but being in the tire buisness i would highly recommend staying with the 235's for safety purpose but i say that more for a disclaimer then any thing..i do know that you need spacers to make the 285"s work..

What is the need for spacers with 285's. What is different on a dually then a Single rear wheel that spacers would be needed. I drive a SRW. I have 285X75R16's on my truck with no spacers. I thought the only difference between the two trucks was the rear axle.

the SRW F-series trucks do not need spacers to clear 285's but with the DRW you will need spacers between the wheels to keep the tires from rubbing bit if the tires rub it will cause friction and friction causes heat and to much heat the tires go kaboom..well you get the idea..
