As I will be buying an 08-10 F-450 here in the next couple of months one of my first priorities is to find a more aggressive tire for the stock 19.5 wheels. I do not want to get bigger rims so all I am looking for is 19.5's

I am looking for something more aggressive then stock but not a full blown mud terrain, just something that will get decent traction when I am up on the job site.

Also can I run 33-34" tires on the with just a leveling kit. I dont really want a bigger tire but I figure that if I can choose between a few different sizes then my options may open up some.

You don't say if it is 4x4 or 4x2?
On the 4x4 you can go to a 265/70R19.5 without any mods, the "drive" tires on the rear are your best bet Goodyear make some agressive tires.

Check out Rickson Wheel Manufacturing for some info.

If traction is what you are looking for be prepared for some road noise...
Cheers

It is a 4X4. I have checked out Rickson and I like what I have seen.

I think I will go with these when the stockers wear out M608Z | Toyo Tires they come in 225-285 so there should be something there to fit your size needs. I wana try for the 285's with a 4in lift on mine, just not sure how much I will have to space out the rears.
