I have a 2007 F250 6.0 currently with Cooper Discoverer S/T 265/70-17 tires. I want to beef them up some and put black rims on there. I have been looking at the Nitto Terra Grapplers but I haven't seen any ratings on how well they do in the snow. The size that I have on there now are about 31.6" and I was wondering how big I could put on there without too much rubbing? I have stock suspension but would maybe look at getting a 2-4 lift but not sure how expensive that would be. I wouldn't lift it if it costs more than about $5-600. Help would be appreciated!

My terra graplers didn't do very well in the snow. They are ok on dry pavement.

iad 295/65/17 terra grapplers on my 2007 with stock suspension. They filled up the wheel well much better. They went good in the snow. my only complant was that I only got 17,000 miles out of them. I bought goodyear dura tracs to replace them, and they only have about 8,000 miles on them, and they are at about 60% tread left. I tow my trailer about 3-4 times a week so that might have something to do about it. I would recomend either for the snow.
