wow some old faces in here today.... brian you need to just look at things like tie-rod ends and the such.. jack up both sides and move the tire and look for any unwanted movement..it is no fun to have something fall off at hiway speeds... sorry dalton i dont know much about those tire sizes.. a tape measure may help.. well the 71 f100 is back on the road and everything works just about like a new one.... now i need to clean up the shop and make a few scrap runs
if you cant run with the big dogs...stay on the porch
71 f100 "rip van winkle" been asleep for 25 years
300-6 npt435.. 20mpg avg. took many years to get that patina just right
I however am looking for some advice if I have a 2inch lvl kit in the front, my buddy has 35s on his, and I can fit 35s however I found some 315/75/r16? I believe for a decent price are those about the size of a 35? And does anybody know how bad they will rub?
Dalton I have a 99 SCSB 24V with a Daystar 2" front leveling kit, and have run 285's (32.83 tall), it came with that size when I bought it and have run 305's (34.01 tall) no problem.
Sorry I can only guess on the 315's (34.6), but the 305's had plenty of room on the back and never hit on the front. Of course I never really off road it, its my tow rig.
Where they might hit would be the back edge/cab corner of the front fender area, if you had your wheels turned just right and flexed it out.
Hit up some Dodge forum web sights I am sure you can get the experienced answer there.
And I never received a pic, resend and attach it this time and I will post it for you.
Good morning all. Haven't been on here as much lately. I had to drive Ol Big Red to help a neighbor see if my 88 f350 wheels would fit his 67 Chevy c30. They fit, it was just too much play in the lug holes.
