any pics of f450 with different tires sizes.

anybody put one size larger tire on their f450 without any lifts or spacers. do they fit. any pics would be great. i think they would be 245 or 265 instead of 225's

Bigger tires would fit... The only problem is they dont make any comparable tires with a 19.5" rim... I wish they did, because I love the stock rims and I am not going to buy new ones. It would be nice to put a little bit taller tire on there when these wear out, to help with Fuel mileage!

They make 245's and 265's for the 19.5" wheels. A buddy of mine has an 05
F550 and the factory wheels would need spacers to run 245's he said. They were 6" wide. He just picked up some 6.5" rims and he said they'd allow for 245's.

Those look pretty close together.

Have you had any weight on the truck to see if they touch?

Generally, commercial tires don't "bulge" as bad as light truck tires. Chris

Great traction, good wear but they have a hell of a whine at any speed above 50mph. They were not cheap but i think they ar the best choice for the Great white north and the stockers sucked sooo bad.
