97 F250 Question?

Ok guys, i want to get some 35" BFG Mud Terrain tires- i can get them for 151 at Tire Rack but they are for a 15 inch rim. I have a 1997 F-250 (with front and rear leaf springs) and i lost my owners manual. How big are the rims for this ? if they are 16 inches i can get the tires for 170 somethin but i woudl much rather just pay 150 if possible. ---Thanks for your help

Should be 16 inches dia. unless someone has changed them for 16.5's. They will not be 15's, those are for half-tons. Make sure your wheels are at least 8 inches wide for those tires. 10 inches is ideal. That's a good price for those tires. Wonder what shipping costs...

Factory rims are 16x7. I wouldn't run anything larger than 33" tires on the narrow factory rims. Others do, I just don't think it's a good idea.

I would not run a 12.5" wide tire on a 7" wide rim. If your rims are stock and you are not going to change them, I would put on 31x10.50's then.
