285's, 305's or 315's?

I'm currently running 285/75R16 on my 2002 F250 4WD with 2 inch leveling kit. It almost time for new set of tires. I think I will go with Fiecre Attitude M/T. But I'm not sure which tires i should go with? Mostly traveling on road and highway. Not really going modding but maybe around the field but that it. I will be running on stock wheels. Anybody got pictures of 315's with leveling kit? Would like to see some pictures.

I wouldn't recommend going wider than 305 depending on the tire. We have the 305/75/16 Duratracs and they rub on sharp right turns. 315 would be far worse. Not sure if spacers are the right choice or not either. Just givin ya my personal experience

No they are not. The hangers drop the front and where the shackle mounts. If you just changed the shackle on the back you are no where near the height of my truck in that picture. I wouldn't go bigger than 305.

You are correct. They will rub the leafs on stock wheels. I had aftermarket wheels with the 315s. Had 305s on stock wheels before.

Here is my 01' 350 with 2" leveling kit and 315 Duratracs on stock wheels. They rub the leafs at full lock. I am about due for some new tires and will be going with the Toyo At 2 in the 295/75/16. It will be a bit taller and wider than the 285, but not so wide it will rub the leafs.

Thats the tire I just bought, they look excellent and the reviews are great as well. Seem to wear very well and get great traction.

Mine are 315's and I have a leveling kit to put on as well.

No. I am saying that I remember seeing a company that sold just the shackle that was longer to say it was a leveling kit. This just moves the spring down at the shackle, which will create lift and rotate the axle a bit, won't give the same amount of lift as what was on my truck. What I had on dropped the whole spring front and back 3.5". The shackle may level the truck it just not as much. Then again, I think a 3.5" leveling kit is a bit much and may even cause the truck to sit higher up front on like an f250 that sits a little lower in the rear compared to an f350, but it's what they have it labeled add on the site.
