2021 F250 Tremor
Hello,

I am new to Super Duty’s and towing a camper. I purchased a 2021 F250 6.7 Tremor earlier this year. I have a questions about recommendations on wheel/tires setup for towing. My truck is currently all stock and the Tremor wheels are pitting. Ford said it was an issue with the brake dust and they are not going to replace/fix the wheels. So currently looking at 17” wheels with a 5” backspacing. I know there have been post about fitting a 17 inch wheel on the tremor but haven’t really seen or found anyone talking about what tires they are running. I don’t want to lift the truck right now. What tire would you guys recommend that will not affect towing. Currently have a travel trailer on order with the following specs.

Internal Height: 6 FT 3 IN
External Body Length: 28.2 FT
External Width: 7.5 FT
External Height: 10.3 FT
Dry Weight: 6,482 LBS
GVWR: 10,000 LBS
Tongue Weight: 650 LBS

I was looking at the Toyo AT3 in a 285/75/17 E rated tire but max load rating is 3195lbs. Thanks in advance for everyone’s time and help.

I would go with a 18x9 wheel and toyo mud 315/70/18 I believe has a 4080 lb load rating. This is max you can go stock I believe.

No. 1, the tires you specified are about 7-800lbs too light on load rating. Hard pass. Can you run them? Sure, but you are giving up about 3/4 of a ton in load capacity from stock. The travel trailer (please reference this as such, when you say "camper" folks are going to think of the slide in the bed affair).
Why 17" wheels?

Thanks for the heads up about the travel trailer. I will edit my post to reflect the correct lexicon. I am not set on 17s. The manufacture for the wheels I am looking at makes a 17 and 20 but not 18s. Also looking for A/Ts vs M/Ts. I had 37” Toyo MTs on my Tundra and there was way too much road noise for me.
 
haha. I grew up in the northeast where everyone called travel trailers “campers.” I still have to think about it every time someone tells me they have a “travel trailer” in California.

Same. I grew up in Florida but live in Maryland now.

You could probably get the factory rims powder coated or repainted pretty cheap i’ve always had bad luck with aftermarket rims they’re never as good as the factory ones
 
I grew up hearing trailers called campers as well... but that was long before 5th wheels and goosenecks became a thing too. Now you have to differentiate so you know what you are discussing.

I was thinking of that also but don’t have a spare set of wheels and tires to put in the truck while that is getting done.

Maybe check with the dealer you purchased it from since they’re not willing to repaint them see if they’ll work with you and let you borrow four rollers to put on your truck for couple weeks i’m sure they’ve got a set of take offs from another vehicle they could let you use

Yeah the dealership I bought my truck from is less than helpful.
 
I've ran fuel wheels on my '17 since it was new with no issues. My new wheels will be here tomorrow, also fuels, and my new truck is waiting on something at the plant lol . Hope it makes it , got a pile of stuff already.
 
I would try to stick with 18" wheels. They are a good compromise between the stiff 20" sidewall and a flexy 17" sidewall. If you will be spending more time off-road than on the 17's would be a good choice, but if you will be spending more time on-road and/or towing I would find 18's or go up to 20's.

When my Duratracs are gone I will most likely go to 285/75R18 Ridge Grapplers, although the Duratracs are growing on me, we'll see how long they last...

I like the stick wheels and if I can find a way to get them powder coated I will keep them but once the duratracs need to be changed I think I will try the Toyo AT3s.
