    I currently have worn out LT235/85R16 tires on my van which I really like but have been told that these are an uncommon size. What would be a common size that is close to these?

The largest tire that you can fit stock would be a 285 tire. I would recommend a 285 70R16 or whatever the size of your rim may be. This will fit nicely and your van will look a lot more beefy. Your speedo may be off 2 or 3 miles per hour just to warn your because the tire is actually 2 inches larger

    A common size would be 265/70R16 that is the most common size for a truck tire.

  • Alex May 03, 2010

    And your van is technically a truck. I think that this tire would be great, better then the 285 tire because that will also work the engine harder causing fuel consumption to go up

Like to know whats the bigger tire and rim


Your problem is fairly non specific. Do you mean what is the largest tire/rim combination you can fit on your vehicle? Or are you looking for an alternate manufacturer recommended size? Either way just drop by a local wal mart and ask the tire techs they can answer this question with a book for free.

What tires can fit a 1999 ford expedition xlt


I believe it will fit. If you go to DiscountTires.com you can use their site for alternate tire sizes. Especially handy is the feature which shows you the Speedometer error for different size tires. The site will also show you recommended and popular substitute tire and wheel sizes.

The 1999 model had a 265/65/17 as an alternative. You may want to ask the Tire store you intend to use if they can reconfigure your Speedo to be accurate. Some of the Fords can be done electrically without changing Speedo gears.

I did something similar by going from a "60" series to a "65" series in the same width. On my Grand Marquis, I gained 5% mileage improvement, but have to watch Speedo until I get it reconfigured. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

Hi. I think the tire size is 2235/70R/15. I wanted to add larger tires. What would be the largest tire size that would fit with no driving problems?


try a Ford place because if some tires you put on there are larger it will cause a problem with the ABS or if you have Discount Tire shop or a Bell Tire shop they can also help with this question

Tire size


there should be a label just inside the door jam on the drivers side or the glove box showing you the maximum size tires as well as correct inflation
