    I have a 2003 Ford F150 4X4. It has stock suspension, but the front torsion bars have been tightened a bit to level the truck out. It has dinky little 245-75-16 tires that are getting pretty old. Im frequently off road, and would like to get bigger tires under it. A small lift is an option too, but nothing too aggressive or expensive. WHat tires fit under a stock f150? How about a 2" lift? Any tire size suggestions?

    You've got a LOT of space for bigger tires/wheels. Make sure to change the computer when you do it to make sure that it shifts properly (if you have an automatic).

    The 2.5" leveling kits say they will fit up to a 33" tire so if that is actually leveled you can probably fit 285 75R16 or 305 70R16 now with no problems. It looks like you've got plenty of room but in the photo it doesn't look like it is on level ground.

    If you go to America's Tire whatever tire store is close to you they will likely be able to tell you what will fit.

    They should, you may want to check before you get the tires tho.
