Question Tire Size F250

Hey guys I need a little help. I have an '09 stock F250 with the crappy Continental tires. I have been looking at the Nitto MT tires but I'm unsure how big I can go without installing either a leveling kit or lift kit. My stock size is the 275/65/18 and I was looking at the 285/65/18 Nittos. I don't want to lift the truck as I don't want to change my goose neck trailer. Also, at least for the time being, I will run my stock wheels.

So what are your thoughts on the tire size? Also while looking at wheels I've seen a lot about the offset. What offset do I need? Things sure have changed a lot since I ran 38" Super Swampers years ago.

Thanks for the help!!!

35x12.5 on stock 18's. The slightest rubbing at full turn occasionally.

So, anything smaller should easily fit.

I just put the Nitto Trail Grapplers 295x70x18 no lift or level and no rub at all. And they were $50 a piece cheaper than the 35x12.5.

Thats exactly the size I was leaning toward. That's for posting that.
