Maximum tire size on stock '02 F250

I'm new here, as you can see! This site is full of useful and helpful information, due to the knowledgable folks on here. My question is this;

I have a 2002 F250 XLT CC 4x4...it's going to need new tires here in the near future. It currently has 285/75R16's. I would like to get a bigger tire but don't know how large I can go without a lift kit. Any ideas? There is a fella on here selling rim/tire package I maybe interested in, but the tires are 32.5, I'd hate to get them, put them on and find the tires rub anytime I make a dang turn. As it sits now the suspension is all stock.

Thanks for the feedback.

Your 285s are actually 32.8", so they're a hair taller. I'm running 35" tires on my F-250 with only an add a leaf up front and minor trimming. The 32.5s will fit no problem. There's no way you could ever run 37s stock, unless you did some major trimming (metal included).

Theres no way you can run 37s on an '02. Especially with stock wheels. You might be able to run 295's but it may be to wide for a stock wheel. You shouldn't have any problems with rubbing with a 295 either. 29575/16s are almost a 33 and a half inch tire.

Turning must not be important to them...

Allow me to clarify. On a stock truck with stock wheels You cannot fit 37s. On the regular cab truck with the 20s or 22s they are sticking way out thus making it easier to turn and not rub. Although i'm sure he still had to trim alittle.

I found some Firestone Destination MT 315/75R16. I like these and can get them for about a G. I also found the Goodyear Wrangler Dura-Trac in the same size. Think they'll fit ok on it as it sits?

Thanks for the feedback fellas, much appreciated!
