The 295/65R20 is the largest size I would recommend for your stock wheels. This size may require some minor modifications to keep them from rubbing with your stock wheels.

Here's a set on a leveled F250 with aftermarket wheels... They rubbed at full steering wheel lock but its easy fix with leveling kit.

Hey Discount, can you tell me what the largest tire I could put on my 02 Super Duty Extra cab long bed? I want to stay with the stock 16 inch wheels & do not want to exceed 11.5" wide. And of course not go over 35 inches in height.
I'm no good with these metric tire sizes. BTW, my truck is leveled.

Thanks, Bruce

With the stock wheel only being 16x7" wide the largest tire size I would recommend would be a 265/75R16. This size is about 1.25" wider than your stock tire and the same overall diameter.

If you were planning on upgrading to a wider 16" wheel the 285/75R16 would be a great size to run with your leveling kit. This size is about 1" taller than your stock tire, and just under 2" wider.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping for a bit taller. I guess, like a true 34 inch by 11.5. Oh well. I also forgot to mention the size I'm running right now. 255/85/16.

Thanks again.

If you like the height I'd stick with this size until you upgrade to wider wheels.

You can fit 37's on it with a leveling kit and stock rims. IMO it doesn't look good, but they fit. I just did it this week
