I'm pretty sure that's the size my van came with stock.

Yep, that's the OEM size on most of them I think.

Will a 265/75/16" work on a 2003 E250 RB40 (no lift)


Going to a BFG A/T KO2 and would love a 265/75/16 - or equivalent 17"
Don't plan on lifting it until I swap to 4x4....... Probably not in my budget until I prove to be wife how much we use the van.

Yes I put Nokian Rotivas 245/75/16 recently. I could probably fit 235 85 16 but it would be close and affect your drivability due to gearing and torque behaviour.

I had 235/85/16's on for a bit and they fit without any rubbing. They were BFG All Terrains. I believe they are the same OD as a 265/75/16, so those may fit without any rubbing as well. An inexpensive option would be to get a coil spacer lift for the front, aka leveling kit.

I have 235/85s on my 250 without any rubbing at all. 5.4 with 3.73 LSD rear and can still smoke tires from a standing start.

Re: wheels n tires on a 2wd e350

See my post to your other inquiry dated 27 January 2015 with the same question I believe.

You may want to contact SMB to see if they come stock and if they have any on hand for sale.

SMB removes quite a lot of tires to accommodate upgrades for the 4 wheel drive crowd, so you should be able to get a good discount on the stock tires.

Re: wheels n tires on a 2wd e350

If you are on the east coast, there is a guy in York, Pa., who often posts OEM takeoff wheels and tires for good prices. He gets them from Quigley (also in York). That's where I got my OEM 16" alloy wheels and Michelin LTX tires. His ads come and go. Here is his current one: http://lancaster.craigslist.org/pts/4859233852.html

Hankook 245/75-16 tires on steel wheels for $600, or Michelin LTX 225s on the alloy wheels for $1050. The Michelin setup is a particularly good deal, as those tires alone go for $200+ each, not counting mounting and balancing. It's like you get the OEM Ford alloy wheels for free.
