How big of tires can I fit on my F150?

How big of tires can I fit on my F150? It is a 1984 Ford F150. I would like some big aggresive tires without a lift kit.

Thanks!
Andrew

I'm assuming your rig is 4wd since your wanting an aggresive tire. I've been doing alot of research on this lately, and this is what I've found:assuming your springs are not sagging too awefully bad and your using a factory 15X8 rim with normal offset you could use a 32x11.50 but I'm going to stick with a 31x10.50. The extra inch wasnt worth another 25-60/tire for me. I'm going with BFG all terrain TA K/O. It has a moderatly aggresive footprint but performs great on road or off and is a quiet riding tire. Depending on your needs the new Krawler series(BFG) is also a mean looking tire but be ready to pay( BIG). Hope this helps.

31x10.50's are about the limit up front on a 2wd, On my 82, I got some rubbing the radius arms at full lock, and some inner fender rubbing under full compression. On the rear, I've seen 33x12.50's fit without too much trouble.

i have 33x 12.5 x15 size tyres on my 81 2wd, dont do it without doing some lift mods!! i put chunky mud tyres on mine and they wore quickly and rubbed on every part of the wheel arch possible.i am currently looking to lift mine so i can keep the tyres at that size, but without the lift spend your money more wiser and get a good 31 inch all terrain.

I found some 32's, and measured them at 31 (real measurment) I have to go out tommorow and measure up on the truck! I did not buy, but will measure first. Only 200 bucks mounted (rims and tires) and fairly agressive, but rims have the clearcoat (?) peeling up. Still a good deal tho, just hope they will fit on my truck without rubbing!

Can you fix the peeling clearcoat (maybe oxidisation) ???

Thanks
Andrew

i dont think 32's would fit on a 2wd, at least not very well. 31s are generally a bit smaller than an actual 31"s. when i was looking for bigger tires, all the tire shops around my house said 30x9.50's wouldn't rub. so i just said with 235-75's.
