Tire Size

I have an f250 (2000) with 315 75 16 on it. I want to size down to a size of tire that will not rub the springs when I turn. What is the largest tire size I can go with and get a full, no rub turn?

out of complete curiousity... what kind mileage do you get with the 35's? Does the mileage vary from stock? Because I wanna put 35's on my new 6spd but I dont wanna lose a lot of mileage if any.

By the way, I am selling the 315's that I have on it now. Can't stand the rubbing any longer. I think I am selling at a good price if you are interested.
The tires are 2 Kumho Road Venture A/T with about 7000 miles on them and only a year old. $125.00 ea.
The other two are BFG Mud Terrains. These are a bit older with more tread used. Have about 1/3 to 1/2 tread left. $100.00 ea.
They would make good tires for someone who wants the big tires. I just don't want to lift my truck any, and want to have a truck that will turn shorter.

295/75/16 are the biggest, but it's a really odd ball size. The 285's are the standard.

When you go with the smaller sized tire, make sure to get the speedo recalibrated otherwise if it's set for 35's your speedo will be too fast...
