Largest Tire 2001 Stock 4x4 Lariat

Hello Ford Brothers!

I am new to this forums but I have avidly checked on here to research my purchase and for information since I now own a 7.3!!!!

I have found on this forums that the largest tire we can fit on stock rims is a 285/75r/16. I just want to verify this is correct before I drop all the money to buy new tires. Does this also include no rubbing on the tires? I turned my tires and eyeballed the clearance distance and it was very short, maybe an inch or inch and half

I have a 2001 F250 4x4 Lariat with no lift kit and no leveling kit. It is completely stock. I currently have the Nitto 265/75r/16 on it.

Thank you for your help and time!!!

285s won't rub, even on a 10" wheel provided it has a 4.5" back space / -25 offset. However, you are only going to be able to run about 35~40 psi before they start wearing in the center. If your wheels are skinnier than 8", then this will happen at a lower psi.

Run a chalk line across the tire, inflate it, then ride around the block. Deflate the tire in 5 psi increments until the chalk is all scrubbed off. You'll be surprised how low your psi will need to be with those narrow OEM wheels.

I liked how my 285s looked and wore when I put them on 10 inch wheels. I was able to run a higher psi without riding on the center of the tread.

When I purchased my truck (no lift or level), it had 295/75 x 16 Nittos on it and had no rubbing issues at all. I'm currently running 285/75 x 16 Cooper ATP's since the Nittos are too dang expensive.

here is a stock 04 f250 with a 285/75/16. absolutely no rub issues, and room to spare. a 2" level would clear a 315 all day long.

Thanks Shawnb99!!
That is my exact truck, black, 4 door, shortbed, lariat. Yours is in better condition though lol! Well and an '02 7.3 with 250k miles hahaha. BUT That totally sold me on the 285s.
Next on the list is deciding on exhaust maybe a magnaflow turboback, intake, my headlights are faded and shot so need some of those as well, foglights, a 90s 7.3 turbo impeller, and no idea if I should get a better wastegate or blowoff. Still researching all of that. I just want a little extra umph while still a sleeper.

here are a few rear shots...


and it is for sale

not really wanting to sell, but kind of needing the room of an excursion with twins on the way, seating 6 is important, as is my comfort. being 6'1" 260lbs, I like some room.
