yetiman, I was thinking about centerline hellcats on my SD when it arrives. I notice you have those on your '97. How do you like them? I was planning on putting the biggest tire i could fit without a lift.

Joe,

I really like my Hellcats they have been good rims and have stayed nice and shiney.
You might want to check and make sure they make them with the super duty bolt pattern. Because the F150 and super duty bolt patterns are different.

Post 33's or 35's for a Super Duty?

I'm having a tough time deciding what size tires to put on my new super duty when I get it. I plan on putting one of the small leveling lift kits on the truck and nice wheels and tires. My question is does everyone think that 33x12.5x16.5 tires will be to small and not balance the look of the truck out right. Or should I just put 35's on the truck and be happy. I plan on getting the V10 with 4.30 rear end.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Yetiman,
You are going to have some clearance problems with 35's. Unless you plan on lifting it, don't plan on getting 35's under the front end.

chris,

I plan on using either the superlift 2 inch leveling kit or the trailmaster 3 inch kit. I'm getting the V10 so won't have the extra weight of the diesel to contend with up front. I'm hoping either one of these will allow me to use 35's if I decide to go that big. I'll probably use BFG AT's in either the 33 or 35. I've had good luck with them as long as you rotate them often.

Greg.....

If you are planning on putting a 2" leveling kit in the truck, I would recommend 35s.
I have the 2" Superlift with 35x12.50 bfg MTs
on American Eagle rims. I was originally going to put 295s (33x10.50s) and the just looked too small.

Mike,

Do you have a digital picture of your truck with the 2" leveling kit and 35's? It seems like many are going for that set up. I pick my truck up next Monday and was thinking the 295's. I would be interested in seeing what the 35's look like.

thanks..another mike

MJS,
I'd love to see that setup also. If you have a picture, send one off to me! :-)

Yetiman,
I've also had great luck with the BFG AT's. Better luck then any other brand I have dealt with.

Chris

I had 33's on my truck with the 5inch lift and they were way to small. Went to the 35's and they look alot better. If you are going to go with a lift go with the 35's, if you don't lift it you should be able to run 33's with no problem. I ran 33's for 6months with no lift and really didn't have any problems.

Hey 4X4,

What did you need to do to recalibrate your speedo? I am in the process of installing a 6" ProComp lift on my Excursion and will be installing 35x12.5x16.5 BFG AT KO's on it. For now I will have to live with the 3.73 rearend until I can find the time to drop in a 4.30. What ratio are you running?

I am running 4.10's at the moment. All you have to do to get the speedo redone is to take it too your ford dealer and tell them you want it recalibrated for the 35's. Some will do it, others won't. It really is a simple process and shouldn't cost you more than 50.00. Hey e-mail me with a pic of your ride, sounds like its going to be awesome. e-mail at cfadal@ev1.net
