Rims/Tires question please help!

Hi everyone im new to the diesel pickup world and I absolutely am enthusiastic on putting money into my 250! My question is what tire/rim sizes are good for my pickup I want it to be a everyday truck, don't wanna lose ride quality that much but still want a aggressive look. It's a 03 f250 Super Duty any help guys would be greatly appreciated...

welcome to the org!!!
i would not go over 20 inch wheels if you want a quality ride.
33 inch tires would look good too.
good luck

If you don't want to lose ride quality, then that means a lift is out. That being said, a 305/70-16 or 285/75-16 (both are 33s) on a 16x10 looks really nice and work without a lift on a 2003. Factory 20s are cool, but then you need spacers to make them fit properly (different backspacing).

I have to agree that a 33x12.50-20 would look cool. Personally, I'd put them on a 10 inch wheel.

Just make sure all of your mechanicals are good (oil cooler, EGR, coolant filter, etc) before heading off to the tire store, otherwise you could end up with the coolest yard art on the block.

Karl nailed everything up there ^^^. Look into monitoring your 6.oh before dumping $ into looks. If you do not know what EGR, EOT, Deltas, EGT, ECT... Are, you should not be driving a 6.0 daily.

After writing all that, I just realized you could have either a 7.3 or 6.0... Which one you got OP?
