325/60/20 on a leveled 250

I have searched and found guys runnign these on stock wheels but I need to know if these would work on my truck.

I have a 2006 250 with a 2.5 inch front leveling kit and f350 blocks. I have 20-10 rims with 4.5 inch back spacing. I also have my front valance trimmed and my inner fender pulled back. I currently run goodyear wrangler ats 275/65/20(stock tires) and want to upgrade to 325/60/20 goodyear duratracs. Will these tires rub or will I be ok. its basically a 35.5 by 13.0 tire. I hope these will fit with no rubbing and I can get ready to order a set.


Thanks in advance.

My 33's (325/60/R18) would rub on full turn with that backspacing. I'm sure you will be trimming quite a bit of fender well in order to not rub with the 35.5's... Think, Tank and his cutting his fenders all to pieces...

Thanks for the quick reply. My current tires are 34.5 by 11.4 so I am not worried about the height really but mainly the width. My current tires don't rub anywhere at all. The tires I want to run are basically a 35 12.50 on aftermarket rims. I really hope they fit

I guess I should have mentioned that my tires were 33x13. Mine were a bit more than 13" wide mounted on rims with 4.5" backspacing. That's one inch wider due to the wheel backspacing from where the stock wheels are. I'm hoping that it is just enough to clear.

hmm... I have that size dura'trac on my 20x9 wheels, I too have 4.5" backspacing, and I rub on the leafs, I pulled the fender liners back and clearanced the valance a little bit. It only rubs on full lock so it really doesn't bother me much

Yea I am hoping that someone like DC can come here and say it wint rub on my radius arms and should just barely clear my inner fender. I did a little test in my driveway turned all the way and went up an incline with the wheel turned and had over an onch of clearance. I dont think the heights the issue but the width.

The only other size tire they have is a LT305/55R20 which is a 33.2 12.5 but I think that might be to small. I really need a 34.5 13.00


I just talked to my buddy he runs a 325/65/18 on a leveled superduty and it just barely rubs. thats a 34.8 13.00 tire. His wheels seem to not be as offset as mine either. Dont know if this will work or not
