Prolly not to much bigger now that you have taken off the spacers. But you do have a 2500 if that makes any difference i dont know.

Alrighty. My next set will be BF Goodrich AT LT265/75/R16. All I will use them for is trail blazing, but for a truck of this size, I need bigger tires.

Why would I do that?? They're useless to me. If someone wants them, I'm going to sell them. I need the money. The Explorder is costing me over a $1000 to fix.

My spacers are fine on my truck. My truck rides real smooth too.

No. Its 1000 for a pump, pulley, and steering box, or what ever actually turns the wheels. But still, Ford makes cheap a** products so they break down, and can overcharge you to fix it. God bless Dodge, and their belief in quality, not quantity.

Aftermarket pully's and powersteering boxes are readily available, try getting aftermarket replacement parts, probably would cost you half as much.
