Larger than stock tire wear
I've got a 2000 f350 dually 4x4 that I'm planning to level or lift. I've had the truck for 9 years and it's time for a makeover. I've been reading this forum for a while and think I have a handle on what it's going to take to get what I want. I'll get some 2" spacers from Fred for sure.
I thought 255/86-16 is what I'd get for rubber but there are not a lot of choices out there. I'm thinking of going to 305 or 315's but I'm concerned about the 6" rim width. Main use of the truck is towing a 9500lb jeboat around.
For those that have the wide tires how do they wear and what kind of life can I expect out of them?
And should I be concerned about having that wide of a tire on such a narrow rim?
Lowlife and lovin' it....
