Depends on who you talk to.

My truck pic is attached - its a early '03 6.0 FX-4 Super cab long bed F-250. I have been running LT305/70R16E Nitto Terra Grapplers for the last 100,000 miles on stock 16x7 Lariat rims. Only in the last 10,000 miles have I installed a 2.5 Rough Country add-a-leafs in the 4 corners. And this was to increase my hauling capacity and help with towing - keep my arse from sinking as much.

Some say 285 is as large as you can go. Some will tell you 315 - but then you will need a leveling kit - and others will say no kit needed.

From my experience - as that is all I really know for sure - LT305/70R16.

I have 33 /12.5 /16.5 BFG ats on mine. I have small rub in the wheel well from the out side corner of the tire hitting at full lock it just rubs a little on the plastic fender well toward the cab. But it sounds bad. I hope to level it this summer.

Stock 305/70/16s fit nicely on stock wheels. Thats what my old truck had, and they looked pretty good with no rubbing.

So do you think 32x12.5x16 like BFG mud terrains or ATKO's would be OK
