biggest tires to fit '10 E350?

I found a sweet deal on some 275/70R18 tires. Anybody know if they will fit a 2010 E350 without rubbing? Not sure if it will clear the front bumper when turning.

I think thats a 33" tire. My stockers are 30.4". I doubt they will fit.

That large a diameter tire would be more likely to contact the rear of the fender well opening up front. I run 245/R75-16 Michelin's and they're very very close. I'd love to use the 265's but not sure if they'd rub.

Is yours a E350? I wish I could put a simple 2" lift on the front to make room for tires but my van has RSC and I've been told that messing with the suspension makes the RSC computer act up and can affect the antilock brakes.

I think the E250 and 350 probably have about the same ride height.

You can run 265/75 16's (31.5") stock if your springs aren't sagged. You can also raise the van, but putting a kit with a drop pitman arm in there will cause the RSC to act up. Spacer blocks for an F 350 up to 2" will work or Super Coils or TTC 2814 Coils will raise it as well.

I've put the TTC2814's in my 2008 with RSC and run 265/75 16 Nitto's without a problem.

Yeah, I think I'll order those spacers. I'll post pics.

I have almost the same van as you. Silver 2010 E350 12 passenger 5.4L. You got any good pics of your van and wheels/tires?

I just got telesoping towing mirrors and a Super Duty grille from a F250. I have an 18' enclosed car hauler trailer to pull, and ya know most of these vans don't have tow hitches, so last week I ordered a custom Reunel rear bumper with hitch, painted to match the van. I got a pioneer z130bt nav head unit and rear view camera on the way too.

As you lift the van, the I Beams swing down. Notice the relationship between the center X member and I Beam. You loose ground clearance here while gaining elsewhere.

Is your front lifted? It looks lifted in that pic with the white wheels.

thread resurrection

Subscribed on this one.. Mines a 95 cargo e350

From what Iv read and see.. a 265/75-16 is max.. on front.

How about on the rear? I wouldn't mind going a bit wider, only if I can keep the outside diameter the same since I want to convert it to 4x4
