Biggest tires possible

What are the biggest possible tire I can run with a 8" lift and cut out fenderflares? I have heard that people with stock lift and cutouts can run like 42s. I have a 2006 f250

Re: Biggest tires possible

I've never heard of anyone running 42s with a stock lift. I run a 6in and 35s are pushing it. Also why do you want to go so big on the tires? Running that big is going to require a built trans and re gearing your axles.

Re: Biggest tires possible

Ok I was exaggerating on that. On a 4" you can clear 40s. I have 38s right now and they look tiny to me. I love the stuffed tire look and i am a fan of having the biggest tires around. I literally want 46s! That would be amazing! Anyways what all would I need to do for that size besides a big offset and cutouts?

Re: Biggest tires possible

I'd plan on putting some 4.88s at least in there to off set the tire size. Like I said previous I'd also plan on a built trans in the near future because big tires eat them up. Also may want to look into ladder bars

Re: Biggest tires possible

Get you some Dub 32's with some white walls. Biggest tires are overrated. Biggest rims turn the most heads homie! Make all the playas jealous.


....yea that was sarcasm. Never understand why people think they need such large tires. "I'm willing to sacrifice the overall longevity of my truck just to say I have the biggest tires around". Just seems dumb to me to roll up and down the highway on a $500 tire. But hell, I'm opinionated, and maybe just getting old.
