Question Wheel Size ?

Ok first off the truck is an 2004 f350 crew S/B 4x4 2.5'' leveling kit with 315-75-16 toyo m/t's on stock rims.I need to know what size rims to get that will work the best for my truck(95% on road with lots of towing and 5% off road aka logging roads) some people are telling my the 7" rims (stock)are not safe and that it is whats causing my truck to drive like sh*T. so be it i need to know whats the best size 8 "9 "or 10 " wheel .the toyo rep told me 8.5" but no one makes that size that i could find whats your thought?

I have been looking into the same situation you are running into. From what I understand the 9" or 8" wheel will be fine with whatever tires I choose. I would just look for a deal or find what you like and if they are either 8 or 9 you should be good to go.

I realize it's a little late, but the 8" will be fine for the 315/75/16. I ran that same setup for 6yrs with no problems. Good luck.
