F250 Highboy tire options

Postby Ladehak » Wed Feb 22, 2017 4:20 pm

Hello

I need you help.
I am trying find out tire options for Highboy.
What is biggest(highest) tires from factory and I need some brochure or facts for inspector.
In my country, Finland, law is pretty tight.
I can increase size 10% or 3 inch from biggest stock size. No more.
My dream is build streetlegal Highboy as high and big tires as possible.
I hope that some one could help me and give exact information. With documents if it is possible.

Thank you

Go to the factory literature library on this site. There weren't a lot of tire height options. Pretty typical rolling height would have been 31". I'm sure everything was bias ply back then and on 16.5 ring lock wheels.. I have 235/85R16 on mine. That's about as close to stock look as possible (tall and narrow).

Maybe this will help, I wouldn't use these for highway use .
I'd look for a radial but you can tell what sizes compare.
