    Congratulations on your purchase, I love Ford trucks……..you should check the decal on the door frame, I believe it's on the passenger side for the correct size. You can also check the owner's manual, it has a wealth of information in it, including the different type of tires you can use. Again congratulations….Ron Man

    Depends largely on where you do the most of your operating. My suggestion is a good quality all season radial. Try to stay away from those over-sized tires, unless you are trying to be impressive. The larger the tire the more expensive the price tag, keep this in mind. Off road you will probably want to use a good mud and snow tire, on pavement you will want a good street tire. Mud and snow tires make a lot of noise on the pavement and tend to wear faster than street tread. As far as tire mfgrs. are concerned, I strongly suggest staying away from Toyo and Bridgestone, the composition of the tire will cause you to replace them much sooner than with other mfgrs. Has been my experience. Tire size does matter, many reasons why including front end alignment and suspension and steering configuration, suggestion; stay with the size that is already on the truck. You'll find your pocket book will thank you. And you will not have to buy rims, at how many dollars each?
