what size tire on stock 2008 20"?

hey guys,

I've tried looking around the forum for the answer... seen a couple responses. Just wanted to make sure before I purchased the tires.

Question is, on my 2008 F350 w/ stock 20" rims will 305 12.5 20s fit?

I will being buying the icon 2.5 leveling kit also.

Thanks for your replies!'

well 305 12.5 20 isn't a tire size. 305 and 12.5 are both the width of a tire. but with a leveling kit guys run a 35X12.5X20 tire with no problem, hell some even run a 37X12.5X20.

Glad you knew what I meant... Was comparing the 305 and 12.5 before wrote the email...

Anyways, thanks for reply... Buddies that own offroad shop are now trying talk me into icon 4" and new wheels (at cost... But still some $$)

any suggestions on wheels? What would look good on long bed, black f350 4x4 with topgun bumper (similar ranchhand)?

Icon 4.5" lift. 22" rims. 37" M/Ts. I think it would look good. Could even go with a 6" lift.

if you want a good look take a look. this is 6" LIFT in the front and 4" lift in the rear with 37's and 20" wheels. if your looking for a nice black wheel that no one has, take a look ate ION
by the way, YES you can "fit" 37's with the 2.5 lift, but its tight and i would go with 35's if you go that way.

i used to work for the LES SHWAUB team that did my whole set up, and they, like many that do the work are quick to give you a general answer like to do the 4" icon lift, but if you read around this forum and ask the guys they will tell you the newer fords are a bit different than other trucks. *i know because i they helped me*

I just ordered 295/65/20 for my stock 20" rims, and I will be running 100% stock Fx4 F-250 suspension. Should fit like a glove!
