What tire size to order from you????

Got a 2006 F250 Super Duty 4x4 all stock frame. Going to purchase (from you) the Vision 375 Warrior wheels. I think they are the 17x8.5 8-170 18GBF. Correct me if I'm wrong on that. My stock tires are LT265/70/17. I'm also going to order the Nitto Terra 245 Grappler AT. What is the biggest size I can go without a lift and rub issues? Just wanting to fill out the fender wells a bit. Just got a Goodyear Integrity tire from you. Got it in 3 days. Fantastic job. Thanks.

Thank you for the post. We would be happy to help.

The 17" Warrior is 8.5" wide with a +18mm offset in the 8-170 bolt pattern which is perfect for stock suspension.

Details: Vision 375 Warrior custom rims

The largest tire size we recommend the Terra Grappler in for your application is 285/70-17.

Wow...I would have thought at least a 295 or 305 would fit. Lot's of room in there it looks to me like.

Once you start turning the wheel is when you run into rubbing.

With stock suspension I recommend the 285/70-17 size. If you want to push the fitment and don't mind making some modifications, tire sizes 295/70-17 and 305/70-17 are options to consider.

The 295 width is about 1.25" wider when compared to your factory size.
