Suspension tire ration

Hey guys i am looking at getting a 2001-2002 F250 4x4. What size tire can you fit stock under those and what size tires can u fit with a 4" or a 6" lift.

Also those of u running like the 35" or the 38" what is your gas mileage, was it hurt at all by the bigger tires and lift?

I can't help you with the lifted numbers but my stock height 2001 F250 4x4 has 285/75/R16's which is just barely under a 33" tire. Something like 32.8" I think.

Stock F-350 w/ add-a-leaf in the front cleared 305/75/16 (33's) no problem and could lift an 8' snow plow and still not rub. Now I got a 4" suspention lift with 35x12.5 mud tires and it still clears just as well with the 8' plow on it. Fuel mileage decreased slightly with the larger tires but i also drive my rig tough.

mine isn't a psd but from stock to 35's mpg went from around 16 down to about 14 and I put on set of 40-17-16.5 grd hawgs and the milage dropped below 8 so I'm sticken with a 35-12.5-16 for now

So i did a lot research about this stuff and it looks like a 4" lift will clear 35" tiers to problem. So with that said what is a total lift package that will give me a nice ride. Also does anyone know the price?

4" with a 12.5" 35 you're good. A wider 35 you'll want a 6". I run a 6" SuperLift with Bilsteins and 35X14.5 Swamper SSR's on a 10" rim. Ride is a little stiffer than stock (not much) and handles turns much, much better. MPG stayed the same as I did an intake and 5" exhaust at the same time but power decreased a little (nuthin' my DP Tuner can't take care of now) I paid $3500 for everything, lift, rims/tires, dual stabalizers and shipping from 4Wheel Parts. Hope this helps!
