Why not read what it says on the tyre wall. its not a hard ask, will also ne on the sticker inside the door displaying the std tyre size and specs.

Or walk into a tyre shop ask them and then watch them alk out to ya car and read the size off of the tyre wall.

18's are no problem, 19's will fit as well. but youll be broke on the tyre front if you get decent ones,
18's go on easy, but if its under warranty, when you tak it into ford take the 18's off as they void any steering and suspension issues once you put 18's on. the GF's old man has to change his on his ute everytime it goes in.

Ive got 18's on my ute no problem, and i know a few guys even have 20's on, but also check with your insurance.

They are 16s on XT, 17s on XR6, 19s on GTs etc. Legally (at least in SA) you can go 2 sizes up eg 16s to 18s. But many people have even put 20s on, there is more of an issue with offset and width rather than diameter. Probably need to talk to a specialist.

BA XT = 16" rims.

I got 19's on mine - Bob Jane package - AMGs with tyres fitted balanced and aligned = $1450 But the price has probably gone up from a year ago...
I also invetsed in a camber kit, which if you change your rims 18" upwards I would highly recommend, after my first set of tyres lasted me F**k all and that wasn't burning it up either - 3 months and they were shot... this set (Yokohamas) have lasted me since (9 months I think) and are about 75% worn... So still got a couple of months left in them, dropping the car 3" didn't help with the stupid amount of tyre wear though :wink:
