    My buddy has a 2000 explorer that needs new tires. He wants to put something on that is a little bigger the stock and a little more aggressive. Nothing crazy but just a little change.

    Prob getting BFG ATs and I think he can fit 30x9.5x(whatever rim size) But wanted to make sure before he got them and they rub.

    What do you guys think?? Any experience with this??

    2000 is the last year of the older body style.

    That isn't the question anyway. I just want to know what the biggest tires you can put on a stock explorer. If you don't have any thing to add :gtfo:

    I know that I have some 265/55R16 Michelin LTX M/S tires off of my truck that I wanted to put on my wife's 2002 Explorer and was told that the 265 was too big. I'm guessing 255 is about the max according to what the tech at the shop told me.
