    Max tire size with 2 inch level?

    Hey everyone, I've been lurking here for awhile but finally registered to get some advice. What is the max size tire that can fit without rubbing on a 2013 4x4 with a 2 inch motofab level and stock 18 inch wheels? I've been looking at 285/65/18 but I think I can get more rubber in there. Thanks in advance.

    I'm on 20s as well but I did 33x12.50r20 on a 2.5 inch level and had rubbing on the one side. Had to do some trimming. So I wouldn't try bigger than that.

    I've seen one with 295/70/18's on it. It was parked, so I do t know how bad it rubbed, but I could tell there had been some trimming.

    OP, heres one of my older trucks that I only had for 4-5 months. It was a 2013 FX4 that I put 295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grapplers on and all I added was the auto spring 1.5" front level. I had no problem clearing 295/70/18s and they did not rub. I know ever truck sits a little different, but you should be good to go without a problem. Here is a couple quick pictures I had of it. Personally I would not have done it any different in tire size. I think it made the truck look aggressive and sit perfect. I did remember there was a slight power drop though after adding them and I know fuel economy took a hit. I had 3.73 gears in that also. But in my opinion, the look out weighed those cons! Hope this helps.

    Your truck looks good! So are those the stock 18X7.5 rims? If so a 295/70/18 fit just fine? I was thinking of getting the same size tires but I was going to get a new 18X9 wheels. My stock is 285/75/18 on a 18X7.5 rims.

    Tire size alone won't answer your rubbing question. If you go with aftermarket wheels the off set matters much more than the tire size.
    For example a 295/60-20 (about 34" vs 32"stock) will not rub on a ET +12 wheel on a leveled truck. The same tire will rub on a ET -12 wheel because you move the wheel out by about an inch and therefor having a larger steering circle since your pivot point is now an inch further out.
    To make a ET -12 wheel work you'll need a minimum 4" lift to have enough clearance. Especially on the 2015+ models. they have a crashbar in the wheel housing.

    With stock wheels you "should" be fine all the way up to 285/75; 295/60; 305/50. i wouldn't go larger than 34" total diameter...

    Thanks! Its actually my old truck. But yes, the 295/70/18 fit with zero rubbing and a 1.5" Autospring lift. However, if you go with an aftermarket rim, you could run into issues depending on the offset. But on the stock wheels you can run that setup without any issues at all.

    I completely agree with your rim offset comment, however I disagree with your tire size comment. You can easily run the 295/70/18 (34.25x11.61) with a 2 inch left on the stock rim without any issues. And I only had a 1.5" lift. If I would have had a 2 or a 2.5 I could have squeezed in 35s as I still had some room to spare. Depending on how wide of a tire, I may have rubbed on full lock with a 35, but it definitely could have been done.
