What size tires on stock wheels

Hi guys,

I have an 04' F-350 with a 2.5" leveling kit and stock Lariat wheels. Does anyone know how big a tire can fit on stock wheels without rubbing or being too wide for the stock wheels. I think they are 16x7 wheels? I would like to go 305x70x16 or possibly 315x75x16. What do you guys think?

I just put 315s on mine(02) on stock rims. I was rubbing the black plastic fender wall behind the front tire when turning, but I pulled it back with a tie wrap about 1/2 inch, and no more rubbing, unless you lock the steering wheel all the way to the right, then you get a SLIGHT rub on the leaf springs, but the wheel has to be locked up all the way.

Technically you aren't supposed to go wider than 11.50" on a 7" rim. But, I have scene a couple trucks with (12.50") 305's and 315's on stock wheels. I was wondering if a lot of guys are doing that or not without problems. Thanks.

Your right on the ride but you can keep the wear to normal levels by lowering your tire pressure... The ride becomes softer but kinda sloshy as well.... Not good for handling the street but pretty good for soft surfaces or big rocks...

My '72 Skylark has 285x50x15s on it which are SQUEEZED on 7 inch rims... I just lower the pressure and the wear is the same as if I had them on 8 or 8 1/2 inch rims... Since they are a pretty low profile tire it doesn't affect my handling to much but does add a good amount of extra "grab" when I'm leaving a light in a hurry ...
