You can go to a 245/75r16 without rubbing.

Hi all,

New here and still exploring. I'm seeing a lot of threads confirming that the 245/75r16's will work just fine. I just wanted to confirm that you are putting these on 16x7 rims and that these will fit without rubbing on a 2003 XLT.

There is a leveling kit install coming soon, already have most parts I need, but would like to make sure the tires will fit regardless.

Thanks all!
