04 F250 HD Edition 18" wheel Tire Q

Im trying to find out what is the largest tire I can run on my 04 F250 with the factory 18" wheels.

Probably going to depend on the tire but in the Carli suspension thread, Dan says some of their customers are running 37x13.5 Toyo MTs on the factory 17 and 18 inch wheels and getting good wear with the right pressure.

With no lift though, clearance will be your limiting factor. Not wheel size.

Clearance is my main concern, I guess Im just trying to see where the cut off is before I start having tire rub. I want to keep the factory wheels on but want it to be a little taller and more aggresive of a tire.

I would start with a leveling kit and go a little taller, then just a bit wider and an aggressive tread.

You can easily space that front bumper out if needed
