    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew what the biggest tire size is that will fit on a stock 07 v6 4x4. I was looking at the 31 X 11.50 I think they may rub. Any suggestions? Thanks

    what wheels are you running, stock or aftermarket? the wheel's offset will play a role in what you can and cant run.

    i have 265/70/17's on mine and i had to cut a little plastic off the fenderwells, i also had to take my front mud flaps off. Not sure if that is for you or not though.

    I have stock wheels right now but plan to get some wheels when i get the tires Im not to worried about the hight of the wheel I just want them to stick out past the fender wells a little to give it a little meaner type look. I would like to run maybe a 8 or 9 inch wide rim but im pretty sure it has to be 17 inches tall to fit over the break calipers. I have some 15x8 inch rims they wouldnt fit over the calipers. I like the mickey thompson classic II becuase they stick out. The lugs are resessed in the rim a little. I just dont want to waste money on something that wont work.

    the offset will play a big part in the fitment when going to an aftermarket wheel. i have 17x9's with a small additional offset and 265-70-R17 Cooper's and at stock height they would rub the front mudflaps, to the point of me needing to take them off until i got my lift on. With the mudflaps off they would still rub slightly on the inside of the fender at about 1/2 turn but not so much that it couldnt be fixed with my dremel if i wanted. Basically, its up to you with what you want to do: fit 265's and trim a little off, or stay smaller and not worry about it. I will mention that with 265's the fenders are quite full at stock height when looking at the truck from the side, too.
