Test drove the 2015 6.7 today. Awesome, but then we own a 2013 EcoBoost which struggles with stability when pulling our 8000 lb travel trailer. Anyone know which tire size is best for towing? 17' 18' or 20??? What about axle ratio?

I think you are talking about wheel sizes there and if so the truck doesn't know what size wheel is on it only the size of the actual tire. A 35" tall tire on an 18" rim is the same height as a 35" tall tire on a 20" rim...

Sorry, wheel size. It seemed to be an active topic for discussion on ECOBOOST forum. Does one size wheel lend itself to a better towing experience than another. I remember hearing that there are not as many tire choices with 20" wheels, so EcoBoost owners opt for 17" or 18". Also axle ratio seems important for 150 towing. Just wondered if it was important when towing with a 250. Anyone think we will have trouble towing bumper pull 8000 lb trailer with 250? We use the ProPride 3 hitch.

I don't really tow much, but I think you'll be able to tow the living sh!t out of a 8000lb trailer with any tires on an F-250, even with stock 3.55 gears...
pops250 and "Stroker 8" like this.

What you'll have to look into is that you can't get some gear ratios in certain wheel sizes. I prefer a tire with less sidewall when towing but not so little that it becomes harsh. Also, you can't get a very high load rating on tires for a 20" wheel. Yes, they are Load Range E but some E's can carry more weight than others. However, if you're only towing 8,000 lbs I dont think you'll be noticing a ton of difference with gear ratios and wheel sizes.
