Tire Sizes

Can you guys tell me what the biggest tire I can put on my 2005 F250 without changing anything. It has factory 265/17's. On my old truck, with the bow tie, I had 305's, my buddy has 315's on his Dodge. Not sure on the Fords?
I pick her up from the dealer today. 6 New injectors, new Inj control Module, New turbo Y pipe, and a new TURBO!!!! Let's hope she stays home long enough for new Tires! LOL

If you level the front you can run 35's

but like it is you can fit 33's with no rub (285)

Typical cummins owner.

OK. I am sorry, I have to ask, How do I level the front? Blocks?
It sucks being mechanically ignorant........

I ran 315/70/17 on stock wheels before I leveled the truck and had no issues. You have an 05 so you would need coil spacers in the front or get all new coils for it. Hope that helps
