2013 F-250 New Shoes

Got some new shoes put on the other day! 315/70R17 duratracs with Fuel hostage 17" wheels. Ordering the carli starter 2.5" as we speak since they rub a little at full lock.

Nice Truck! The 17's look a little too small to me, but it's not my truck so my opinion doesn't matter.

Are you rubbing the radius arm at full lock? If so the leveling kit won't solve the issue.

If it is rubbing one of the radius arms at full lock, but not the other. Then an adjustable trac bar could help you out.

Thanks for the welcoming. I hear ya about rim size. I don't mind the smaller rim and tires are cheaper. I get a whole tire for free virtually. I'm gonna go with no, not the radius arm. I'd need a little help at describing which part that is actually. I'm a little new to the truck world. The front left rubs on the metal part of the bumper a little and the front right rubs on the back side of the fender. mostly the fender well lining, maybe nicking the thin piece of metal that the lining screws to. FYI -12mm offset

By what you are describing, a leveling kit will stop the rubbing. From the side pics you took of the truck, I couldn't tell how far the wheels are sticking out. Now knowing you got a -12 offset (which puts centerline of the new wheels exactly 2" further out then stock) and 315mm wide tires, it all makes sense.

would a 0 offset have been better? Thanks for the info.

I'd have to agree; I think the 12.4" wide tires are the culprit. Better go ahead and order that kit.

I wasn't 100% sure if they were gonna rub so I wanted to put them on first and see if I needed to. Looks like I will have to now. Do yall have any opinions on the Carli suspension lifts? Looking at the 2.5" starter system. I think its enough lift to do the trick and won't kill the wallet.
