    I got the Rough Country leveling kit and 275/65 18 Toyo Rough Country AT2 tires installed today. The look is exactly what I was looking for, and I couldn't be happier. The tires aren't any louder than the Hankooks, the ride is very similar, and there is no rubbing so far. I haven't hit any bumps while lock to lock, but it doesn't rub under normal circumstances while turning all the way. The tire is VERY close to the spindle, so I doubt you could go any wider without spacers or different wheels. Here are some pics.

    can you get a pic straight on from the front and back? I was thinking of getting that same size tire. but not sure how good or weird it will look with fender flares.

    Looks great!

    Curious if the 275/65/18's will clear the fender wells without a leveling kit.

    Thanks man! I think it would clear, but I can't be 100% sure because the tech installed the kit before the tires.

    Looks great. How about the spare tire? Does the larger size fit in the same space?

    From my experience on other vehicles. Going up one tire size is usually no problem. I dont Ford would make tire/wheel clearance so tight you can't go up one size w/o rubbing.

    I had a chance to look under the truck when he was working on it, and it looks like it would fit.

    So far I'm loving the change. I think it is what an FX4 Offroad package should look like from the factory.

    I'm not sure if it is because of the leveling kit or the tires, but the truck immediately rode quite a bit smoother. Before I would feel like a chassis oscillation when hitting bigger bumps, but now that is almost completely gone, and the steering feels a little more communicative. Couldn't be happier.

    Can I ask how much the leveling kit set you back? Also, how was your experience at Gary Yeomans?

    Good to hear about the spare tire.

    We’re there any alignment or other suspension adjustments done after the install? Any comments from the technician that did the install?

    Just ordered my RC leveling kit. Going with the Falken WildPeak A/T 3W, size 275/65-18, on my stock 18” wheels. The tires review extremely well and will give it a more aggressive look while balancing between highway use and the snow traction I need here in Colorado.

    Here’s a pic of slightly smaller tire on a Taco.

    Nice looking truck - hows the clearance between the front bumper / wing and the tire when it's turned all the way? It's gotta be REALLY close....

    Looks great! Glad they fit without spacers since that just makes clearance issues on the fender even worse. You did a great job balancing the look with OEM!
