Dually or SRW? On a SRW they will fit just fine. Not sure on a DRW.

If it is a SRW you will be fine. I have 285x75R16 on 2002 F-250. I been running that size tire since I bought the truck new. It will give you a smoother ride then the 265.

You can go to a 305x75R16 with no lift. Once you go to 315's you will need a leveling kit for the front end.
