245/75 R16 tires work well with 7" wide factory Ford Alcoas on my E250?

Hi everybody,

I'm wanting to run 265/75/R16 tires which according to the sizing charts online are too wide for my current stock 7 inch Ford Alcoa alloys on my E250 Super Duty with 2" lift.

Anyone have personal experience with this wheel/tire combo? I plan to use Michelin LTX AT2 tires.

Also, does anyone have an inexpensive used 16x8 set in the SoCal area? 8x6.5 lug pattern (stock E250)

PM me.

Thanks!

Hey Poptopper ---

I think you'll be totally fine using your original 7" wide rims for 265's.
(285 would be too wide.....but 265 is totally within spec. (At least for BFG KO2's.)

Per the BFG KO2 official sizing/load spec download sheet:

67179
LT265/75R16/E 123/120R
Standard RWL
Rim Width Range (Min/Max): 7" - 8"

full spec sheet .pdf viewable here:

EDIT:
Just noticed you indicated you were planning to run Michelin LTX AT2 tires. No problem!
They carry the same spec as the BFG's --- 265 is totally peachy on a 7" rim.
