35 inch tires?

It just dawned on me. I want to put Nitto Trail Grapplers LT315/75/R16 on my stock 2002 F350 Lariat rims.

I read that the stock rims are 16x7 and on Nitto's website it says they're 16x8+, will the tires still fit on my stock rims? Iv'e been looking everywhere and can't seem to find 35's in a 16x7 format?

Ok thanks. I read that they will fit but will cause uneven thread life, but Idon't really care about that. When is that a big deal?

After you pinch those 12.5" tires over that little 7" rim, run some chalk across the tread to get the best tire wear possible. Adjust the air pressure until all the chalk rubs off.

Fact is, the wider the wheel the more psi that you can run to achieve a flat tread contact patch. PERSONALLY, I won't run a 12.5 (315) tire on anything less than a 10" wheel.

Did the tires get installed? How did it work out? Got a picture you could share? I have nine of the stock rims for my '03 and need bigger tires! Just wondering how it all worked out...

No not yet, I was in a accident with the truck while parked and someone side swiped me. So I'm waiting for the insurance check then having a buddy fix everything and with the remaining balance buy all the add-ons I want, fenders, iron cross bumpers, rims, tires, etc. But once it's all done il definitely show pics. Just not sure how long.

I'm hoping you got the truck fixed by now! A good friend has a Wrangler DuraTrac, LT 315 /75R16 (new) on yet another matching rim (gives me 10). He is supposed to bring it by any day. That's a 34.6 inch diameter tire on a 7 inch wide rim. Ive got to see it!

Believe it or not truck is still in the shop lol (broke life)..... I have been thinking and I might go with PRO-COMP 1069's in 16x10 format as I can get them cheap for about $100/wheel or maybe save up and get XD 797's though the smallest they make them in is 17's. It really depends on how much I save as I plan on getting a matching grille one without the bolt stud look if I get the pro-comp's or one with the studs if I get the XD's.

Any wheel will fit a Superduty 99-04 that is a 16"+ wheel in diameter and has a 8x170 bolt pattern.

BTW sorry for the late reply.
