Advice on tires

I want to increase the OD on my tires for my 08 f450 I have the stock continentials on it right now and need a more aggressive M&S. If I can get a taller tire I am hoping to drop a little overall gear ratio. Most important is grip in the snow and mud. However with 488 gears Im looking for a taller tire

what would you all recommend

come on guys I need your help on this one. I was out for a walk and I saw a 450 with stock 19.5 and the tire size was hard to read because it was dark however I think it was 285 70 19.5 I couldnt tell if he was running a spacer. I am hoping to see the truck again tonight as I am taking a flashlight with me. Even if i could fit that size Im looking for a taller tire to drop some over all gear ratio

You wont be able to go very much taller since you have a dually, at least not without spacers
