F350 4x4, what size tires?

What size tires are you running on your one ton 4wd? I am interested in stock to moderate lifts and tire and wheel sizes so I can gauge what fits well. Pictures are welcome.

I am thinking about upsizing the factory size 235/85/16 tires on mine to 315/75/16's, and I plan to do the front shackle reversal later.

You will need to do the RSK 1st to run the 315s and i would recommend going to at least a 8" wide rim to run those tires.

here is my old 97 F350 w a RSK and 315s on 10" wheels

I was wondering if they would be too wide. I got the idea from looking to a friend who runs them on a stock F250 with a slightly offset wheel and his truck is lower than mine. I would love to find a size like the 34/10.50/15 's I ran on my F150. That truck drove good on those with a trimmed bumper and leveling springs.

305/70/16 will fit rite on with no modifications. the 315/70/16 will fit, but you may have to trim the front bumper, and if you off road hard they will hit. the 315 will also rub the springs on full lock turns.

Thank you for that. 305/70/16 sounds good to me since I am not going to lift it yet.
