Man, I hope someone has the answer to my questions. I have a 2006 F350 Dually that I pull my 5th wheel with. I want to replace the factory tires with some larger mud terrain tires. The factory tires are BF Rugged Trail LT245 75R17 on the factory wheels (I believe 17 X 7.5). I like the factory wheels and just want a slightly larger, more aggresive tire.

What is the largest mud tire I can put on there without spacers or a lift kit?

Can I go to an LT255 75R17 without the back tires rubbing?

Thanks in advance....

I would look for a 235/80R17. There should be a few choices out there in that size

Early 99 F250 with a bunch of extra junk...
