Tire size

What is the biggest tire anyone is running on a leveled (not lifted) 99-03 super duty? I'm wanting to put 325/60R20's (35x13.00R20) on my truck but don't know if they will fit. The front of my truck sits about 4" lower than the back. Like I said, I only want to level it.

I am running 315's and they rub while off roading or in a good dip. Not real bad but they do rub.

You can run 35s like was said. I am actually running some 36" tall tires, but they are not as wide as some regular ATs or MTs.

I had 275/65R20's on there, they were 34" tall but they were only about 11" wide. They only rubbed the leaf spring when I turned the wheel all the way and the only time you could tell is when it would rain because they would squeal.

the 35s will rub a bit more but it should be tolerable
