Tire sizes?

I'm sure it's been asked a thousand times but I couldn't find the answer by searching. I have a 2012 250 with 20" stock wheels. Without altering the lift/suspension, how large of a tire can I put on the factory wheels and not rub?

35s is about all you can do and really you need a leveling kit once they start getting wide which most of the tires are. Very few 12.5s to choose from.

A 35 12.5 20 will fit np.

I think you'll find there's nothing but a mudder available in that size.

Ok, thanks. You mentioned a leveling kit. Is that similar to the levelers I put on my 1/2 ton? Only in the front to bring the nose up a little? Or is the levelers your talking about more of a lift kit?

Thanks again
Don

The 20" michelin 275/65r20 are 34.4" tall, So 35" tall tire is not a whole lot bigger than the OEM tire. The problem as Trick mentions is the width and wheel offset that cause problems.

FYI: just found out yesterday I can no longer go thru a car wash. Tires are too wide for the track and it got stuck.
D'oh.

You go thru car washes.

I gave up on those years ago when I got my first long bed. Found out most car washes will not handle a CC long bed.

Yea, we've got one that's pretty cool. It's a general all over wash and when it comes out all wet the Mexicans swarm it and it's all sparkly in like 5 minutes.

Sad I can't go there anymore.

I just put a set of Toyo AT II's in 295/65R20on my stock suspenssion truck a week ago. fit great, no rubbing, and look great. they're about 35.4" tall and i want to say about 11.5" wide, so bigger than the stock 274 mich's that came with it. i was planningon doing a 2.5" level/lift adding 2" to the rear, but think i'll probably wait since I like th way the truck looks with just adding the tires.
