Looking for sizes for a combination of Mickey Thompson wheels and BFG AT tires for a stock 96 F350 CC. Just bought the truck and want to replace the wheels and tires. I had 16.5" rims and 35" BFG's on a previous 96 reg cab but MT doesn't make 16.5" rims. Do I go with a 17" rim and if so what size tire? If i go with a 16" rim I can go with the Alcoa or MT rims but what is the largest BFG At I can put on without having the tires rub. My 35's rubbed a littl on the wheel well but didn't bother me too much. Thank for any help.
FYI Alcoa no longer makes wheels for our trucks. You would have to find used ones.
Personally I would got with a 16x8 or 16x10 and a 315/75/16
I don't know why you say the tires rubbed the wheel wells. I can clear 35/22.214.171.124s on a STOCK F350 with just some bumper trimming. Even 4wheeling they NEVER rubbed the fenders.
I like the MTs better anyway. Yeah the tires rubbed for sure. On a tight turn both sides. If I remember correctly they were rubbing on the inside. Maybe it was the rims. I've been looking at the Mickey Thompson tires too. The Baja ATZP3 looks good. I have had nothing but BFG AT on all my F350s though. Can't complain there. I think I'll try the 315/75/16.
