Re: largest tire size

33x12.50's will fit, but they will rub when you get the truck turned hard...and you wont have much flex, if any. Without a lift, I'd go with 32x11.50's. Oversized but not too drastic.

Re: largest tire size

save your money on the tires and go for the lift i went your route and after i got the lift i wanted larger tires now i'm stuck with 33's till i can get the cash for 35's and mine still rub on the radius arms at full turn but i live with that cuz its so nice to be able to make sharp turns when needed

Re: largest tire size

The 1988 was a special version of the Bronco. Without a 6 inch suspension lift you can only run 31X9.5 inch tires. Anything bigger will strip the gears in the rear end. Basically you can only run stock tires with what you have.

Re: largest tire size

It is special to those that will not read the first post in this forum. I read it and felt like beeing a butt.

Re: largest tire size

To answer your question correctly you can look at my web site, search or........

Seriously, I wouldn't look at what can I fit but rather what do I need. 31 M/Ts will work very nice for the hunter. 32s fill up the well very good and boost the look of the truck. 33s will fit but will start to limit what you can do with the truck as you will have some rubbing. If you have no lift planned prior to tires then get 31s or 32s.
