315's on a F250

How much lift is needed on an 05 F250 to clear 315's or even 305's? Pics would be good also.:

Thanks

You can clear 305's stock with no problem. I know you can fit 315's and don't think they'll scrub but with a leveling kit they surely wouldn't scrub. I think a 315 is roughly like 34.5 inches tall while the stock 20's that come on some 06's are 34.1 inches tall. That meaning you should be fine on a stock rim. Hope this helps.

However, 35's on a stock truck will rub when going lock to lock, or when going over rough roads... or so I've been told. I run 33x12.50R18 on my stock truck.

Yeah but a 315 isn't a true 35....It equates to 34.5 according to BF Goodrich and I know all the tire calculators that I've put a 275/60/20 came back with 34.1 inches so I don't think half an inch will make much difference especially on a stock rim. Now with aftermarket rims with different offsets and backspacing it's possible you would have a problem but I know plenty of people with stock 17's running BFG AT 315's and don't have a problem

You would need a leveling kit or 2" blocks if running with a stock rim or an aftermarket with a close backspacing.

It's not just the diameter, but the width will affect rub also as it moves the tires edge further from the center of steering axis, and therefore will have a greater chance of rubbing.

Cool, so whats the biggest numbers I can run without lift blocks. A little rubbing at full lock doesn't bother me. (Got 33x12.5s stuffed under the 84)
