265/75R/16 BFG AT KOs on E150

265/75R/16 BFG AT KOs on E150

While anxiously waiting for my 2nd 2wd van from SMB wondering about tires on the E150 as last time (in 2000) i got a E350. I need to keep stock lift, but want to put the subject tires on Dick Cepek DC2 wheels which have a -12mm offset. With this tire/wheel set up, the van is lifted to 6'11", which is perfect, need to keep it under 7'. I am replacing stock front bumper with a trojan bumper, so that rub is gone. I am thinking I am going to have to rubber mallet the inside wheel well an inch or two to avoid the rub on either side?? The -12mm offset should help some?

Thanks!
Steve

Steve, did you ever install this setup? I am about to go 265/75/16 on my stock E350 and wondering how many issues I run into. I am not too concerned about minor rub at full lock, but any insights you have for me would be appreciated!

Best tire size for vans into opinion is 235 85r16 1" narrower than 265 but same overall diameter. All are e-rated and they are cheaper too. We have them on our 04 e350 super duty diesel and love them.

I just put 265/75 16's , Hankook Dynapro atm, E rated, on my 2013 E150 stock steel rims.
No rubbing issues front or back and no rubbing at full lock.
They look great and the van rides much better.
