Default Pick up truck on friday, will they fit?

So they did total my truck and I got a good deal more than I thought I would. So I'm going pick up my new 2012 F150 lariat 4x4 Offroad Friday. My question is, will a 2" level tuck 34" tires without rubbing? They'd be 275/65-20's on factory rims.

Ideal tire for a leveled 4x4 on OEM wheels. 34x11 which will give lot's of room from the upper control arm. I may go with that size next if I can wear my current tires out! Don't forget the plate in front!!

I've got my plate pawpaw!!! I don't want to "Tackle" that subject right now though. Man them buys gonna have it rough if they don't pull it together. I had the 5100's on my 2011 raised to 1.5" but I'm gonna have ford level it at. 2" and throw the BFG's on if I can assure they won't rub. If not ill wait for the 4" then get the BFG's. if rather not wait though. Just being me. Lol.

My 305's are the ones close to rubbing on the inside but I have 21k miles on them and can't notice any rub mark's so that's OK with me. I know what you mean, the Tiger's offense has not been anywhere to living up to their potential against the SEC team's and hope they can do better against South Carolina Saturday night. Looking forward to seeing pics of the new truck!!

I have the same Terras on my stock wheels. There 's no rubbing except on full left lock - just a little.

LOVE the way it looks. HATE the way it effected the mpgs but... I can certainly live with it.

That's one reason I'm going with 275's. trying to keep the same footprint and not have a wide heavy tire. I know the BFG's are an LT/E rated tire which is much heavier than the stock pirellis but ill take the "in between". I wish bfg would make a 6 ply AT KO. Wishful thinking though.

Some tire manufacturer's make tires with an XL or extra load rating, kind of in between a P an a LT rated tire. These are available in all terrain design's but the trick is to find one in the size you need. Nitto and Toyo have XL rated tires for sure. I had BFG TA/KO's on my '04 Lariat 315x70x17 that were load range D and 50 psi max. At 42 psi they rode and wore great. My problem is I like to buy new tires too often!!
