Tire Size Question

I looked around alittle for the Max tires size that you can use on a stock height 2002 F250 4x4 Crew Cab Short Bed and couldnt find much.

Right now Im running 285/75/16 slicks and I am in need of some tread.

I would like to go alittle bit bigger.

I found some 315/75/16 tires

Would they fit without rubbing etc?

Tire Dimensions Made Simple - Discount Tire

The Tire Calculator said they were 1.77 inches bigger overall diameter..

Thanks!

I also am in need of new skins. Right now I have 305/70/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 2000 F250 crew cab , long bed . I have a 2.5" leveling kit on it and these tires rub a little at full lock and just touch the inner fender well when turned to full lock. I'm looking at going to a 285/75/16 to stop the rub , although its only minor rubbing. Our winters up here, we see a lot of snow , so a narrower tire is needed. I can't see how you could go to a wider or taller tire with a stock height. I had to put the leveling kit on just so I could put on mud flaps,

Maybe my tires are so bald i dont remember them being 'filling'
According to the website i listed above. your 305s are .2 inches smaller but that tire is almost 1 inch wider than a 285

So I guess thats the limit

The width is what causes the rubbing, so I might be able to go an inch taller. I'd have to measure to be sure , I wouldn't want to spend almost $ 1000 and find out they are to big. I know I'm safe with the 285/75/16, but I'll have get a better look tomorrow.

I have the exact same tires and size as Greasy.I am leveled also.Mine doesnt rub at full lock.I am not positive that a 315 would clear though.IMO.

I broke down and just got some 285 75 16's again. My next tire purchase will be for some bigger rims from a 03-06

What tires did you buy and why? I'm ordering new skins tomorrow, the Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/75/16 load range E are on national backorder for 3-4 weeks. Now I need to make a decision as to what i can get . I need them within the next 2 weeks, so I can't wait on the nittos.
