What size tires can I clear???

Does anyone have some sort of educated guess as to what size tire I could fit on my truck. It's a 2002 F250 4x4, it's has the 2.5" leveling kit on the front, and the factory 1.97" block in the rear, and I have 35's on it now with a slight rub. But I just bought used a 6 inch Pro comp susp lift, that is for an Excursion, but Procomp say's it will all bolt right up (according to the part numbers I gave them), but also said it wouldn't sit as tall b/c its for the excursion. I don't know nobody can give me a straight answer about tires???

Help???


Thanks...

So do 4x4 Excursions sit lower than 4x4 250s? If so find a stock 4wd excursion ( maybe at a lot somewhere) and measure the difference between the height of your truck. Maybe that would help determine how your truck will sit.

Will do...

Thanks for the reply, I will try that ou, i think they do sit lower? I just bought new rubber all the way around, and don't want to put this kit on if it's gonna dwarf my 35's you know. Don't want to look stupid till I need new tires.....

Thanks

The 35's on stock wheels and a 6" lift don't look to bad. A friend of mine lifted his CC 250 right after he put new 35's on ( got a super deal on a skyjacker due to a guy going thru a divorce)and he ran them till they were worn out then put on 37's. The 35's are a bit small but they don't look too bad.

I would take the leveling kit out and put the lift on.

You should look pretty decent with 35's but would be better off getting another wheel and going with some 36's or 37's (which might rub).

6 Inch Kit

The 6 Inch Kit will leave you with a pretty decent gap between the wheelwell and tire in the rear with the 35s. My buddy put 37's on his and it looks great.

When I bought my truck it had a 6" lift with 35's, it didn't look to bad, I did only go a week before I put on some 37's. What do you want for the leveling kit? Do your 35's rub at all?
