I'm running the 295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers on my stock 18s and have plenty of clearance.

I'm getting 325/65r18s installed soon on stock 18s with stock suspension. I've even seen a truck with 325/60r20s on stock rims with stock suspension

Great choice ^^^. Bronco has Trail grapplers (MT) I have Terra grappler (AT)




I have 2 good friends running these tires also, both in AT's and MT's. One friend DJ got forced off the freeway in his '09 f350 with 35' 5er in tow by a semi. He went off the shoulder down an embankment and through 100 ft or so of a grass. All 4 295/70r18 trail grapplers were still mounted and fine. 5 of his 6 trailer tires dismounted.

I believe the quality tires (80 psi E rated but actually 129q load rated! That's over 4k lbs load rating per tire) possibly saved my friend his wife and 3 kids from a tragic ending that day.

I have seen people putting wide tires like that on stock wheels too. IMO the manufacturer shows the approved wheel width for a reason. I would never tow or carry loved ones in a vehicle with an improper tire/wheel set-up.

I understand your concern for safety and I appreciate it. I will only be running this set up for a few months. Also I have no plans of towing or hauling anything more than 300-500 pounds while running the larger tires on the stock rim, just mostly highway driving. Also Im only going to be running them at 40-50psi max even though the tires are E rated and can handle 65psi.
