Largest Nitto trail grappler M/T tire that can fit on a XLT 17" stock rim

Hate the miniature tire look that the lovely ford company decided to put on my truck. Therefore looking to up the size to fill up the wheel wells without rubbing. Cause without a doubt the lariats have a bigger tire which pisses me off cause I still paid a crap ton on the truck.

Widest and biggest. Want it to look mean instead of a fleet truck. If a small level kit is required I might consider it. I have a 2012 F250 XLT 4x4 CCSB with 17" rims.

Might paint/plastic dip the rims for a better look but don't know yet

PICTURES WELCOME!

Why did you spend so much money on a truck you were not happy with? It comes with tiny wheels and tires because It is a work package truck.

I would suggest 295/70R17 over the 315/70R17, as the 315 wide tires may rub the radius arm at full lock.

You can fit 35" tires w/o a problem, that's the stock size for 20" wheels.

I do like the truck. I just think its stupid for ford to shist people that want the XLT package abnormally small tires and rims regardless if its a work package. Just my opinion. If you want the rims to be not so good looking then ok, whatever. But at least give us a decent tire. Shouldn't have to fork over 5 grand for more leather, paint, and tires considering it sees field work almost constantly. Sorry to vent but that is the ONLY thing I don't like about the XLT's

Stock 20's come with 275/65r20 which is only 34.4x11

There have been a few stock guys say they rub with 35x12.5

I would suggest a leveling kit and then you can rock 35's without any issue.... however you will most likely rub the radius arm because of the offset of the stock wheels... leveling kit with aftermarket more aggressive wheels will get you 35's with no rubbing issues
