Tires for a 06 F250

I have an 06 longbed 4x4 that NEEDS some new tires. I need tires that will last a while, can tow, and handle teh snow well. What say you guys?

Second, what is the largest size tire I can fit on a F250 with a front leveling kit. These will be going on the stock 18" Lariat wheels.

Thanks
Dima

What is a 35" tire in a metric size? 315 or 325?

I'm running General Grabber AT/2's on my 07 F350 with the 18" rims.

I put them on at 60K miles after the Continental junk burned off.....Handle great in all weather i've put them thru especially snow/ice. Great bite on dirt roads getting to campsites etc and even hold they're own in mud for an AT tire. Truck now has 95K miles and they're still between 1/4 and half tread which is pretty good since I'm horrible about rotating tires and do drive the truck pretty hard.

They do great for towing as about a third of my trucks milage is hauling a 30 foot gooseneck.

Not sure what larger sizes they're available in.....I bought them in the stock 275/70R18 size.

Tirerack.com had the best deal I found on them at the time......

Any opinions on the Toyo Open Country all terrain tires?

Also will the 325/65/18 fit on my 06 F250?

Thanks
Dima

I love my Toyo's, however I have the Open Country MT's. I don't know that you would get the miles you want out of them. I think mine will probably be good for around 40-45000 total.

Yeah, you will be lucky to get 25k out of them, that is all everyone that I know can get out of them, I got 24k before I replaced them. Other than the wear, they are a fantastic tire.

I know they are not very sexy, but I currenty have about 35k with about 1/2 tread remaining on my Michelin AT2's (not home to measure tread depth). Little tread squirm when new, but they have become a very stable tire that have held up great for me. I haul a 10' Lance Camper on my '02 F350. Been from Prudoe Bay Ak to Baja and everything in between with them and no problems at all (hauling the camper).

There are 285/75/18 (35x11.50 18) in Toyo, Nitto and Goodyear as well if one of those suits your needs, can be run on a stock suspension truck with no issues.

For a stock size (275/70/18) tyre I would be looking at a GY Duratrac as we have had pretty good luck with them so far.

35s fit with absolutely no problems on a STOCK 2005 F250, non leveled suspension. I have 35x12.5r17 KM2s on stock wheels with no rubbing whatsoever.

OK, this shit is pissing me off. I am converting all these tires sizes from metric to imperial, and I am going crazy here. Tehre are NO websites that agree with each other on tire sizes.

I am just going to walk into a store and tell them I was a 35 size tire and get the fucker on there. ughhhh

Bridgestone Dueler AT REVOs were a great tire on my 02 F250 gasser. And I kept them and ran them for a while when I traded for my 350 diesel. I would have considered the REVO IIs on my 350 if they made them in the size I wanted.

We are running a set of the original REVOs on our 3500 dually duramax at work, and they are doing really well. I can only imagine the REVO IIs are just as good.

sold floation = metric equivalent = actual flotation equivalent
35x12.50x18 = 312/70R18 = 35.5x12.5x18
35x10.50x18 = 265/80R18 = 35x10.6x18

Neither of those two tire sizes exist though, so for something close to a 35x12.50 you need to look for is a 325/65R18 (35x13x18). A 315 series tire only sells in a low profile that I know of. The 325/65R18 does have selection choices.

A 35x10.50 is going to be closest to 285/75R18 (11.5x35x18). If you want this one, you are getting the MTR.

Or a couple of choices in Toyo and a couple 295/70/18 from Nitto...

I would throw a vote in for GY Silent Armors, though the best they come in for a 18" rim is a 325/60, which is about 33.5" tall. Probably a little shorter than what you want, but depending on if you have a diesel or gas burner....you could be either gaining or hurting yourself with gearing.

I put a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 06 F250 and so far, I love them. I haven't had them on for very long, but I could tell a difference immediately when it came to road manners and traction. Plus, they have lightning bolts on the sidewalls. I mean, how cool is that?

I was happy with my BFG A/Ts, and am happy with my current Yokohama A/Ts - both sets were 315/70-17 (overall diameter converts to like 34.4"). It is on an 06 with a 2" leveling kit and stock wheels.



Edit: Looks like you will be looking at 325/65-18 (says they are 34.8" tall)
