what tires can I fit

Hi I was wondering what size tires I can fit on my 2006 stock with stock rims and no lift. Is 30.5 too big? How are these tires? Dick Cepek Radial Crushers

my 05 fx4 came stock with the equivelant of a 32" tire. not sure if yours sits lower than the fx4 though. i put bfg all terrains on it, stayed at an overall dia of 32" and never had problems.

I'm runnin 305/70s on 16x8s with a 2.5in leveling kit and I had to trim about 2 inches off the corners of that lower front bumper plastic thingy. Any wider or taller and I would be SOL.

I am running 305 70/R16 no rubbing and no lift or other mods to it I would say you could go a size bigger but they would probably rub some

I have a '03 6.0 - no lift, no leveling, stock wheels running my 2nd set of Nitto Terra Grappler LT 305/70R16 E's. The 305 is basically a 33x12.50x16 tire. Fits very well.

You can run a 305/70, some people run a 315/75 with no problems on stockers with no lift. When you start getting into aftermarkets with bigger back-spacing, that's when you start getting the rub. On stock wheels with a 315/75 you might be ok, since you have no leaf springs to rub.

I ran 305/70s on mine stock for a while, but when I went to a 16x10 wheel, I had to lift it to clear.

if you run a 285/70R17 (32.8" tall), you won't need to lift it and you'll never have to worry about rubbing.
