BTW, welcome to the site!


And I find this out the DAY AFTER MY SENSOR FAILS to tell me my rear tire has blown out on the highway.

So poetic.

Speaking of NEW Tires. I live in the SNOW, 8 months of the year, can someone tell me (aside from the Bridgestones that I smashed through this Winter) what tires I can put on my truck that I wont manage to melt off in 8 months? These ones were ridiculous. The Pirelli's I had lasted 40K miles. These less than 11K. WTheck!!!

Question. I have a 2009 STX 4x4 4.6L with a 2" level kit up front. I'm buying 20" rims this week and want to put Terra Grapplers on it. I read that 35" tires will still rub. I am not trimming my fenders so I will put the 33" tires on the 20" rims that I'll buy.

My question. What is the tire size I can put on those rims? 2xx/xx/20 ... That is where I get confused with tires.

thanks

And would that put me at just enough clearance between fenders? if I did calculate it right, those tires would put me right around 33.2" total height. Am I right? Hah

Yes. But after usage consider that they'd go down a couple inches. My 33s measure out to 32" installed.

Also space between the fender depends on your rims.

what exactly do you mean depends on your rims? 20's are 20's, right?

Yes, but how far they stick out depends on if they'll rub or not...also they're x8" x9" and x10" in width.......

I cant post a picture but if you can go to this link and click on the white F-150 in the bottom right hand corner, wall paper link. Tell me if you think those are 20 or 22s. Thanks a bunch!

A couple of other sites that are important information when changing tire sizes.

1. This site will calculate the engine RPM after changing tire size or regearing. Important if you want to make sure RPMs are not too high (overworking engine) or too low (overworking transmission).

http://www.csgnetwork.com/multirpmcalc.html

2. This site will give you the final gear ratio after changing tire size. It will also show what ratio you need to get back to the OE ratio, which could greatly help to keep the transmission from being damaged from too much shifting.

Tires without lift kit - please help

Hey guys,

Unfortunately I don't know much about vehicles or tires. I just bought a 2013 F150 XLT 2WD. I want to get some off road tires to help get around the hunting club I belong to. I tried using the calculator someone posted, but it was out of my understanding. What are the biggest off road tires I can use on my stock vehicle without lifting or using a leveling kit. Any tire suggestions? Also, is there a difference between a lift kit and a leveling kit? Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.
