Largest Tire that Will Fit...

I have a 2005 F150 Lariat SuperCrew with 18" rims and a 2.5" lift kit. What are the largest tires that will fit in the wheel wells without rubbing?

I want an aggressive tire that works well both on and off road.

Thank you,

I believe 35 inch tires will fit on the stock rim offsets but I think 33s look better with just a leveling kit

You can fit a 35x12.50 using the OEM wheels but you will probably have some minor rubbing on the control arms at full steering lock, depending on tire tread design. Anything smaller will fit with no rubbing.

You could run 35's with some minor rubbing, probably only at full lock. I've got a 2" leveling kit and I'm running 295/70/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers. Those are like 34.5" on my 18x9" wheels.

X2

You also have more room before they bottom out. I've gotten my 32s to almost bottom out in the fender well so for me 35s are out of the question...but then again I have a 2wd so it sits a little bit lower.

I really like the 295/70/18 option.
