2008 f450 tires?

I dont want to spend the money to replace all my rims but would like a bit more height off the truck. I have a 488 rear end so I would like to go a bit taller for that reason as well to knock down the rpm a tad.

so what options do I have with the 19.5 rim and with out having to buy spacers etc?

Im in the same boat as you and was looking at the Goodyear g-171's, but haven't heard much feedback on them. Wanted some opinions before I pull the trigger.

I have hankook DH01's in 245's and have plenty of room and dropped my rpm's about 150 ish. I think there would be room for a 265 but not sure. If you werent packing a ton of weight you can get away with running the duals closer together.
