Need help on tire sizes for stock EDGE

Hello all! I am in need of new tires and have a question...I have a 2002 Edge 2wd. it has the stock rims on it. I know for sure i want the BFG All-Terains, but want to know the biggest size tire that will 100% for on the truck without rubbing what so ever.

There is NO lift on my truck currently and I have not Adjusted Torsion Bars.
I just want to know what the biggest size tire is that i can put on my truck without lifting it or adjusting the torsion bars. I want like 30's on it. BUT NO RUBBING OR ANYTHING!

Thanks so much for anyone's help AND THIS FORUM IS THE BEST!

-Nick

You can do 32s without rubbing. Maybe a little if you put it on bump stops hauling something.

31s and under are for sure no rubbing.

So you would say that 31's are the best bet?

It all depends on what you think my friend.

For comparison:

235/75/15 (stock)



265/75/15 (best pic I can do right now)



They fill out the wheel wells a bit more and didn't really do anything to my mileage.

Ok cool. Thanks. Do the tires stickout at all on the side of truck. And I hate to be a pain, but could you get a picture up close to the side so I can really get a feel for how big they are?

Thanks so much, I really appreciate this.

I ran 29's and 30's and didn't hit anywhere no rubbing at all, even fully loaded towing, now I'm running 31x10.50x15's and 2 turns on the t-bar ( just to level it better) and I hit at full lock on the factory mud guards, so I removed them, no issues since...
