Tire Question

Okay after looking through 10 pages of search results and not finding an answer I am going to ask my question.

I have a e99 f250 with 6000lb front springs. Will a 305/70/16 fit without rubbing? I know that I will have to go to a 8in wide rim to fit the tire so the only question is the rubbing.

If there is rubbing is it just on the fender well or is it on the leaf?


Thanks!

A 285/75/16 will fit on stock rims no problem. A 305/70/16 shouldn't rub, but it also depends on the back spacing of the rims you get.

So if I got a rim with 0 backspacing like stock then I would be fine or do I need to get something different?

I have a 2wd with 305/70/16's on 10 inch rims. I get some minor rubbing on the back side of the left inner fender well when making a sharp right turn. Not sure how a 4wd would do.

People have run 305/70R16's on stock wheels. I don't know about rubbing issues but it's been done.

Would negative backspacing help with the rubbing issue? I dont really understand the negative positive backspacing.
