Default Tires - Cant decide need visual aid...

I have looked at the tire guide and realized that I can go bigger than I thought on my truck. Basically I am asking for a clear answer on what size I can fit on my 2005 4x2 Edge with the torsion bars cranked? Some pics would be great of trucks that have just a torsion bar mod so I can get a good idea of what they actually look like on the truck.

O ya I have the 16's and I'm not sure what the width is on them I guess whatever stock is...

You have 16x7's. Your truck sits the same height as mine stock so if you level it out you could get some 33x11.50's for your 16" rims and have no rubbing if you remove your front mudflaps.

Pretty much, if sticking with stock wheels(your 16's), go 285/75R16. If wanting to run new wheels, get 15x8's and run 32x11.50R15's.


Here's 265/75R16(I suggest this if you've got 3.73's) on stock 16x7 with a minimal torsion crank to level t hte truck out...


Here's 32x11.50R15 on 15x8 with the same minimal torsion crank to level the truck out...

Thanks guys all this helped out a lot. I think I'm gonna go with 285/75 R16 now. I was gonna go with BFG because I have had those before but now after lookin at Ranger101's truck and a few others The Nitto's look pretty damn good!

The Terra Grapplers do good in the snow. I haven't really gotten to test them out in anything else yet. But I must say, I'm glad my truck finally inspired somebody to do the same to theirs LOL

Well we don't get much snow in FL lol but I must say your truck is def. what I'm wanting mine to look like. If you don't mind me asking what did you pay for those tires? I have found them for around 190....

And for the tires I pay $615. That was shipped to my door from Discount Tire. I had them in like 4 days too.

I work in construction so I am in the dirt pretty much everyday. I need AT's. Nothing more embarrassing than get my truck stuck and having to have a loader come push me out. I don't have 4x4 so I need reliable on the road and in the dirt. The bald factory tires on my truck just arnt cutting it these days. LOL
