a tire question as old as the super duty itself

This is a question asked by im sure every super duty owner...i bought my first powerstroke about a year ago its time for new tire and im going to a 35x12.50r17 or a 315 70 r17 im putting my leveling kit on this afternoon. I want to go to a mud tire or an aggresive all terrain but i dont know where to start any suggestions. i run about 70/30 highway/offroad and pull a fifthwheel camper and boat..thanks for the feedback

I have a 2006 super cab F250, I put 35 12.50 x 17 BFG mud terrain tires on mine and love them, I also have the leveling kit on the front and the tires fill the fenders real nice, I my self don't like the huge gap between the tires and fenders (personal prefrence) that they have with the stock tires, I am currently running the stock wheels and they are a little on the narrow side but so far no problems, I have been wanting to go with some wider wheels tho (17x9) and have been told by some of the guys here that they won't rub and if they do it will just be the plastic air dam under the front bumper and a quick trim will take care of that.
These tires get a little noiser after a few thousand miles but still aren't that bad, did loose some power but the fuel milage is still 15-18 hand calculated each time which is great for a 7000lb pickup.
I would think the wider wheels would be better if you are hauling much weight and these are only load range D but all in all I am very happy. Hope this helps.
Good luck

Here are a few pictures on ours, the one is pretty dark, it was the day I brought it home. Hope this helps you make up your mind.
I don't know why the came in so small, must be because of the file size, just pick on them and you can get a better view.
