Your 97 must set higher than my 96 does i could get 32's on but 33's would require cutting



These are 31's on a 15x8.5 wheel's

tires will most likely hit the bumper, especially if you have after market (wider) wheels. All newer half ton trucks have this issue. I've never seen a 97-03 F150 on 35's without lift. FWIW

ouch like a grandma? ive been in bogs and had the truck off the ground i may not have the fastest truck but im thinkin might be a lil much for grandma and if you look in jeffs videos its the maroon ford it honestly has 35 boggers with no lift in those videos it doesnt have much for a bumper but i ran a full bumper for a couple of years and it never rubbed

???? 35's rubbed on my 91 F250 when i was doing any amount of wheeling. you must have driven the truck like a grandma for them to clear
I had 35's on my 77 with no trimming and it was defintally not drove easy... Now the fenders are cut for the 38's so i dont gotta worry bout a cut tire
