October 6, 2007I have an 01 EB 2wd with the stock EB wheels. I want to add a more aggressive tire since I had to ditch the 20's and go back to stock. My current tire size is 275/60/17..... will a 285/70/17 or 265/70/17 fit my wheels or am I stuck to the OEM size ????? what tire size will fit ???

October 6, 2007I'd suggest going with the 265/70-17.
October 6, 2007If my memory serves me correct, 265/70-17 is the stock size.
Anyway... Somebody had put 275/60-17's on my old 00 EB just before I bought it just over 4 years ago and I have to say that they were too wide for the stock wheels.
The tires were bulging off the rim and the ride was a bit loose on the highway due to the sidewall flexing more than it was supposed to.
When I changed over to 265/70-17 the ride improved a lot. No more flexing sidewalls.
October 7, 2007Those were both OEM sizes. The 265/70-17's came on 4x4's and 275/60-17's came on 4x2's.
October 7, 2007Really???
My 00 EB was a 4x2 and the OEM size, according to the Ford sticker was 265/70-17.
