rim width

whats the width of the ripsaw rims that come on the 2000 F150s? I'm starting too look for tires. I'd like to go with a 32x12.5x17 if they will fit the rims (width wise). Also any recomendations on an AT or mud tire. It will be on the roads 99% of the time and the 1% will be dirt roads and fields... no wheeling. Also want something that wears decent and don't care about the MT noisiness

I've got Firestone Destination A/Ts on mine and its only 2wd. Great tire even in the deep stuff. Ok so the truck can do snow drifting but thats mostly driver "error" but I've never gotton stuck with them. They give great traction in a straight line, just ask Smoke. Of course Smoke passed me but hey he's got 4wd


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

imo i would put on 285/75 BFG T/A KO's your looking at about 1200$ though, probly one of the best all around & look good tires for a truck around, imo

if you look in my gallery the old pics have those tires.

not too sure you can clear or fit 12.5 on your rims the 285's are around 11" wide

That tire is too wide for the stock rim. You will exceed the reccommended width and they will be all over the road and rapid tire wear. Gab is right, BFG are the only 11.5 wide 32 in a mud or AT. You can get a decent poished rim in 17 for a little more than $120. We have Procomp in Chrome on sale this weekend, for your bolt pattern they are $212

I'd find somewhere cheaper if thats what you are paying for them (or is that with tax, installation, and old tire take away). I'm also probably going to be putting the tires on the rims so that should save me a little bit of cash. I'm hoping to stay around the $700-800 range if possible

I'm not a big chrome guy, and I'd like to avoid getting rims if possible. Trying not to break the bank but I can't justify getting new tires without going bigger

Also, I'm guessing its a 7" rim then?

If your going to go bigger tire at 700-800$ range you most likely won't be getting quality....I know a few guys that ended up buying two or three more tires cause they always had flat tires with the cheapo's.....I never had a flat in my life and always had good tires I drive well over 60,000km's a year hwy, and hours at a time on rough backroads on a regular baisis.

Sometimes it pay's in the end to get the good stuff, from what I have seen with tires
