Largest Street Legal Tires

I did some searches and didn't find anything, so sorry if this has already been asked: I was wanting to know what the largest tire size you can have on your truck that is street legal? I don't know if it differs from state to state, but I live in Oklahoma if it helps.

Also, anyone know the widest axle you can have?

Re: Largest Street Legal Tires

I wonder if you could just lower the headlights to get around that? Hmm...

Re: Largest Street Legal Tires

to answer the original question, the largest street legal tire in production right now is the 52" michelin. i believe they make a 49, 50, and the 52" versions. super swamper also makes a 49". michelin was supposed to come out with a 54" version, dont know if they ever did. throw on some 54"s, then make some drop down brackets for the headlights
