My 350 has plenty of power now with the stock 460, T18, 3.55's and 235/85's but I was just wondering what is the max tire size that will fit with stock suspension. It's mostly a tow/haul vehicle so off road performance is negligible. I'm planning on regearing to 4.10's with the tire size change. I don't really want to lift it because it is a tow rig mainly. It'll have a ZF5 by the time this is done. Thanks.
33s for sure, possibly 35s. 35s should fit, but in my experience they don't always. It depends on the brand and the actual size of the tire. I've seen 35 inch BFG's mounted without doing anything and others that have had to trim or shim the bumper. Your mileage may vary.
i have 33x12.5 on my stock f250 and the front springs are saggin. it depends on how wide you go, i seen a guy with 37s on a stock 350 with just moving the bumper a little. but then another tire might just barely clear 35s, also the backspacing of the wheel matters
I really would like to put on the newer style of H1 tires when I do. I don't mind a bit of modification to the front bumper I'm just worried about how much it will affect the steering. Do you have major issues with the tires hitting the springs with 36's? Turning radius is already bad, not really looking to make it much worse.
I had 39" Mickey Thompson's on my 96 F350 4x4 with only a 3" body lift and custom front bumper to prevent rubbing issues. Just for reference is the purpose of telling you that but I would stick with a decent 33" tire like Wild Country TXR or RVT radials.
I have 35s on 10in wide wheels on my stock 97 F350 and no rubbing on the springs or anything,just a little trimming on the bumper.Also the tires if anything still look small on my truck and are by no means crammed on.
