245/R75-17 2011 F-350 dually

The truck came stock with 245-R75-17 tires. Can I go bigger without the dual tires rubbing when loaded or any other issues?

Also what type of aggresive tread tires do you reccomend? I am in mud and snow often. Thank you inadvance for your help.

I cant really help you with the sizing but if your in the mud and snow often I would defiantly go with at least an all terrain. If you want to you could do a mud terrain like the Nitto trail grappler or the Toyo open country M/T. They are mud terrains but they are not like mud boggers. I think they are a pretty good mix of the 2 types of tires.

For the '05+ Duallys the widest you can run out back without spacers would be 265/70R17's (as I don't believe there are any taller E-rated tires on the market). They calculate out to the same height as the stock 245/75R17s, just a larger footprint. However when you tow with these you will need to make sure they are aired up and don't rub from the extra load. As for tread, I run the stock BFG Rugged Trails and they've held up well for a milder AT.
