F250

Gonna be getting an f250 super duty lariat with a 6.7 in her. I wanna lift if but gonna be hauling a fifth wheel trailer full of horses and another one with quads and stuff. What's the highest lift and biggest tires I can go with and still be okay ?

I think if your going to be hauling towards its limits I would leave it stock. Not saying I havent seen some lifted superdutys pulling some heavy loads but I think safety would be a concern. Maybe a more senior member will chime in.

I wouldn't go any higher than that for sure. Really limits a gooseneck or fifthwheel if you get in an off canter situation, and in a trailer vs. bedrails situation, the bed loses.

Yeah I was told not to go to big. I'm gonna try to squeeze 37's under a 4 inch lift. I think it can be done

you can run 35" tires stock height with stock wheels.
35" w/ aftermarket wheels at 2.5"
37" w/ aftermarket wheels at 4" (10" wide or under) or 35" w12" wide wheels.

Only question. I don't understand the wheels ? What sizes are you giving me ? The width or the hight ? Or like idk. I'm lost only with that.

Backspacing. The farther you push the rim from the truck, the bigger tire you can fit, but the more stress placed on the hubs and bearings.
