Default Ford Guys - tire clearance

I have a 2017 F150 FX4. I recently put a 2" leveling kit on the front, and am needing new tires.

I know a lot of people add the leveling kit, just curious what size tire you can fit without rubbing.

I am keeping my Ford 20" wheels, so I wont be going wide. Just a taller, more aggressive looking tire.

Thanks for any input.

Same lift on my 2014. My rims are 22" and the tires are 285/55 with no rub. The next size will rub. Proj Mgr has same FX4 and went one size larger with his 20". They will rub. Good Luck.

Check out tire calculators like the one at Discount Tire for your measurement comparisons. Their calculator has save me from numerous do-overs.

You should be able to fit up to a 35x12.50. I've got 285/75/18. Nitto measures claims these are 35x11.5 and I've still got plenty of clearance on stock wheels. If you were to go with different wheels, you'll need to really watch the offset because you'll quickly end up rubbing on the crash bars with larger tires.

I’m going with Falken 305/55/20. Discount tire price matched amazon since they were in stock on amazon. $217 per.
I’ll upload before and after pics for anyone interested.

One thing you are going to find is that guys will tell you that they run "XX" size tire with no rubbing. That may be true on level ground. Full up travel on the suspension (like running into a hole or trench at full lock) is where you find out if your tires actually rub or not.

Much better. I wish the factory would send them out like this.

That looks good. Did your ride quality change at all? I suspect a nicer, smoother ride with the taller sidewalls.

I'd be interested in hearing how much it affects your mileage. I'm planning on going up when I get tires too, most likely to this same size.

We are going to the lake this weekend. I will let you know what I get on that tank. Then the next time I fill up, I will let you know how it did driving around Houston.

To be honest, I haven't really noticed a change in ride quality at all. I was trying to find a difference, but the truck feels like it always had. It's been pretty smooth since day 1.

If you do not mind can you post receipt image? I may try and do the same and would like to see if they will price match their own store not just an online price.

Let me go see what I have. They price matched amazon when I originally ordered the 305/55/20s. I paid in full so I have a receipt showing that.

But then I switched tires, so I had that money as a credit, which was applied to the 275/65/20s. Those tires were about $30 more per tire. Which I had them price match Wal Mart on. They originally wanted close to $300/tire, when Wal MArt had them at $245/tire.

I'll PM you the receipts this evening.
