F150 Tire size ???

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys, i'm in the process of getting some new shoe's for my truck and am looking for a bit more of an aggressive look. I have a totally stock 03' F150 FX4, my question is will I be able to fit 285/70/17's without any other modifications? I'll be using stock rims..

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Here are some stats from the web. It looks like they recommend a 2-4 inch lift. I know my kid put 265/75 under his F150 and it filled the wheel wells up pretty dang good so I can believe the 2+ inch lift.

BFG All-Terrain T/A KO

LT 285/70 R17 121 (D) Q 2-4" lift 12" clearance

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
