A 12" wide wheel with a 325mm width tire is going to really stretch that tire out.

As for fitment, how much lift is on the truck?


I run that size tire on my 07 with 18x8.5 Welds.

Re: biggest wheels

If you are goin to level the truck i would go with 18X12. With my lift i run 14 inch wide rims and they stick out quite a bit. With a wide tire they will be wide and look good. My brothers buddy has an 05 F250 leveled with 18X12 welds and pro comp x terrains. Its a sick setup.

Re: biggest wheels

I think overly wide wheels look bad no offense. YOu need to have the height to go with the width. I would recommend going with a 10" wide wheel at the most and get a 305/70/16 for it.

I have a leveling kit on it now. I was told by the guy that does all of our tires at work that it would come out to a 35x13.50x18 is that right?
