Biggest Tire for PSD w/o Mega Lift?

My 02 has the front leveling kit, and that is all...what is the largest tire that can be used with that setup? I'm running 285's now...just curious!? Not looking to scrub fenders or anything.

thanks
cale

I had 305-75-16's muds on my trucks and they only rubbed if the suspension was compacted and I turned it all the way. O but I see you have a leveling kit so I dunno. Im getting 35s and a 2.5" kit put on monday

ive got a 2002 f250 and running 315/75/16..the only time i have any problem is when turning real sharp...the tires rub the leaf springs..of course these tires are on stock wheels so they tend to balloon out a lil more...changing the wheels off set and going with wider wheel will prevent the rubbing..or you could just run these tires and get a little rubbage of the spring

Same here, my tires(35s) barely fit without any lift so Im thinking u may be able to get away with a 36" with that leveling kit.

315s are a tight fit depending on how much the stock springs are sagging..
best is a 305/70 or 33x12.5 equivalent.

This was my truck on the 315/75/16s before any lift. I really didnt have the sag problem yet though.

before I lifted my truck I ran 305/70/16's bfg-MT's and it barely rubbed in a sharp turn, now I have a 6'' lift and I'm runnin 325/18/70's with no rubbing but I'm thinking of either 35's or 37's just not sure yet. and my truck is a 2wd if you look at my garage you can see the difference in tires and lift.

Convert Metric Tire Sizes To Inches

this thing tells me that the 285 and the 305 are the same size...Looks like both run up to about 32.8" tall...I was thinking a 33 would be the biggest I could go!

thanks for the help!
