Needing some help with tires

Hello guys tax season is appon us and I am trying to find some tires. I have the 16x8 mags on my 2000 f250 and they have the 265's on them. I have been looking at a set of the dick cepeck tires. 305/70/16 comes out to be almost a 33x12.50 will they fit and not rub? Will I have to have spacers? Help would be great on this subject.


Thanks ,

Mike

Re: Needing some help with tires

We have 305/70/16 on stock wheels on our Excursion. Inside of the tire rubs the leaf spring at full lock but we live with it. Stock wheel is a bit narrow for that tire. Hope to get new wider wheels with tax money. If you stayed at a 285/75/16 it is about the same hight but not as wide. I have run them also... no rub and fits the wheel better.

i run 315/75/16s (closest to 35s in metric) with no problem except rubbing on full lock i picked up the goodyear wrangler duratracs, they are really nice tires highway and offroad heres some pics of how they fit and look im running a f350 at stock height

when i ran 305/70/16s i had no rubbing what so ever but i might have to run spacers with these new tires probably quarter inchers the rear has no rubbing problems what so ever even with 2000 pounds of stone in the bed

The tires I am looking at are 32.30" tall and 12.30 wide. I just don't want problems especially paying almost 1100 for tires.

2006 trucks didn't come with 16" wheels...

305s are too wide for stock rims. You'll want 285s.

My 06 wheels are 18's. I put my stock mags back on. I am going with the 265/70. The 305/70 will fit but they will rub when you turn lock to lock. I don't want tall tires. Most I am going is a 33.

I'm confused. Are you looking for 18"s then or 16"s?
