What's the largest tire size I can put on my stock 15 inch Alloy wheels on my Explorer. Will a 30X10.5X15 fit in the wheel wells without rubbing? Looking to put on some Mud terrains, and I want to get the most out of the tire size. :exp:

Wheel Size

So would the 30X10.5 requre some fender trimming at all? The Stock tire size is just a fraction under the 30 inch mark, so I am wondering if I go up in tire size would I need to have adjustments made to the speedometer, etc?

235/75R16 or R15 are 29 inches tall but it depends on the brand. Explorers can fit 31x10.5 inch tires with little to no rubbing also depends on tire brand.

I'm running 31x10.5 super swampers on 15x8 wheels with no lift and they only rub a little at full lock, otherwise they're fine.
