depends how good your sawsall skills are.

I run 33x12.50 without any issues, 35's should fit but may rub a little.

I ran 37s on my 97 F-350 by trimming the front bumper a little or you could move the bumper forward about a inch.

I fit 36's under my '95 350 with out any issues. I'm currently running 315/75/16s and they fit about perfect. With an rsk i'm sure 38's would fit great, plus it would improve the ride...

Jesus H Christ could we get any more politicaly correct. Let's try this...

Fuck off NEWB drink bleach and die.

Seriously you could probably fit 35's with a leveling kit, 33's no prob.

Shit even I am a pussy.

Here are 37x12.5x17s on H2s on a leveled F250.



I didn't run them...I just threw them on while doing a brake job.

this is a question for the ford truck enthusiast pussies man. You need to look into humvee tires. 36x12.50R16.5 Goodyear MTs good tread usually, and cheap. They also make em in 35 and 37 inches too. and 33s? you really must be a pussy dude. What the fuck?!?! 33s are for jHEEPs, samis, toyotas, and all that other little shit that cant handle torque, big tires, and SERIOUS offroading. real men dont drive trucks with UNDER a 35" MUD TIRE. My fuckING four wheeler has thirty threes on it dude. wasamatter? is your widdle back too weak to lift a 35 plus inch tire if you get a flat tire, GURLIEMAN ?!? truely. fucking. sad. You should take up a different hobby hombre, cuz obviously you aren't hardcore enough for this shit. Eat shit, drink bleach, crawl up your own ass, and Die.

ape shit. Old school SFA toys are great, but not better than EBs, 1/2 ton SAS Bronco IIs or rangers. Why? because the latter are Uhmurican Mayde. And it stands to reason that a truck half the size will go twice as many places. And on that note, would be the optimum choice if its only purpose was to travel offroad. But bigger trucks do need bigger tires to enhance their offroad capabilities. Its all about proportion and angles, to state the obvious. And a crew cab needs Way more than a 33 to do much, trust me. Only reason I'm givin the op shit is because somebody has to do it. I would rather he come here and ass a dumb question than go to FTE or some other place because although he may get his feelings hurt, at least hes not getting misinformation from those mall crawlin' pussies. And yes, every 4x4 magazine and most mud tire vendor's web sites have lift/tire fitment info, making the op's question dumb because he didn't research it first, but, at least he asked it at the best damn place in the world for 4x4 info. Who knows, maybe he'll catch the bug and build a real OHV.

The cleanest setup is a leveling kit with 37"s. That's what I ran on the bottom truck for years until I got out of hand and went to 44"s and fiberglass quarter panels. 35"s is the minimum for an F350 these days. 33"s used to be the standard cause 35"s where considered huge. By today's standard the 37" is the ideal off road tire so for someone wanting to improve the appearance of their truck yet have some nice clearance for off road go with the 35"s. The ProComp Exterrains run nice and have a 40K mile wear warranty.

Oh and 37"s require a shackle reversal which really improves the ride too by getting the rear of the front spring off the chassis. ORI makes a good one just add some extra gusseting if your going to hit the trail hard.

37" NO LIFT F350 sits about an 1.5" higher


35" NO LIFT


44" Shackle Reversal 2" Level

on that note, I told you about the Military tires. One guy in the tires forum has recenterd hummer wheels and 37" tires with90% tread or better for $175 a piece, hes selling the tires for $75 each. I figured you'd take the hint and look for military tires here on pirate in the tires section.


P.S. you forgot the all important drink bleach... stupid noob

I've been a member since 06 and I don't have many posts. Most of that is because I didn't have the web for a while, but also, I do alot of reading and not alot of typing. But still you would think (with that logic) that in almost 5 years of reading, he would have found an answer to his OQ.
