KO2 in a stock e350?

Hey Guys,

I plan to get a weldtec 4” lift down the road but now my tires are ready to be changed and I’m about to go in a trip with some off road driving.
Since im about to do the lift, i don’t really want to get new tires after... so I was wondering if some of you are running 265/75/16 ko2 in a stock 350

I did the same thing with my E350. The 265s fit. It is tight and you may rub at full lock. Once the lift is done there is no rubbing.

I just out some on a e250. Some rubbing. Looking into getting a 2" lift or fenders cut.

The rubbing isn't bad but it definitely rubs.

If I had to do it again, I would pick the xl version. Pretty good stuff.

Thanks! I'm not gonna lie, the cost of Bushwackers has been offputting, and I only need about 1" extra coverage to keep me legal (edge of tread surface, not sidewall, though we'll see how my new 315's look on Friday!) The "foam rubber" construction may be cause for concern though... have you had the chance to head off the beaten path/drag some branches across them?

yeah, is not a problem for them since they have some flex. If something I would be concerned about the glue, but that applies to any flares anyway. I just can't justify spending 500 in the bushwackers they're way overpriced.
With 500 you can do about 5 vans.... if one gets broken on the trail, the repair is quite easy and cheap, no drilling required and they're light as a feather.

Looks good! I’m in the same boat. The second “full body” shot is a little dark for me. Do you think it changes the overall look much?
