325/60-18 is a 33inch tire, I'd mount on AT LEAST a 10. 285/70-17 is a 33 that can go on a 9 or 10. For more tire sizes, I'd check out Summit Racing's website, they're great for hunting around for stuff, getting what size you really want then shop around.

Oh yeah, personally, I wouldn't do anything more than a 33 without a lift, but then I also believe a rim should be VERY close to the tread width.

Karls03's Sig:SRL + 4" exhaust = 13.89@96.68

You would need a 2.5" spacer up front and F350 blocks in the rear. FX4 don't mean it sits any higher. Just means you got some stock Ford shocks with Rancho stickers on them (seriously, they're the same as all the trucks), and some good skid plates.

I'm running 315/70/17's on stock 17x7.5's with a 2.5" spacer up front and 350 blocks in the rear.

You could EASILY fit 285/70/18's. They would probably look a little small though.

Is the 2.5" spacer on the 05 & up for the track width change? I heard about this but I thought it was if you were running newer hoops on an 04 and older SD/Excursion. Too many details to remember

It's a coil spacer, just pushes the coil up or down, depending on which type you get. It's not a width change, vertical change. When you do this, the axle will move to the side a little bit. The correct way to do it would be to add an adjustable track bar.

I've been looking at doing a nice 3 link setup in the front with an adjustable track bar and doing the track bar flip.

Anyone else flipped their track bar?

My reading comprehension skills suck as usual, I confused lift spacers with wheel spacers.
