Hey guys. Time for tires again and I want something bigger than the stock 265s. Whats the largest I can go with on stock wheels and a 2" front lift. Truck is a 02 F350 4x4. Thanks!

they dont bulge on the stock width wheels? 10 ply? Ive got some 315/75/16 I thought about using but they are only 8ply. I almost never have anything in the bed. If im doing anything its pulling a loaded car trailer.

the reason I asked here is cause I called Discount Tire last week and they said the 315s would bulge out too much on the stock wheel, and that I would have to buy some wider wheels.

It's not the best setup and it might kill the mileage a little on your tires but they'll mount and bulge a bit

would 285/75/16 be a better choice?

There is roughly only an inch and a half difference in height between the 285 and 315. the 285's should not rub at all, but the 315's on stock rims should only rub on a full lock turn

did some looking and decided its cheaper for me to get new wheels and use my 315s. Found some 16x9 wheels on egay that have like a -24 offset. That should be enough dont you guys think?
