Default 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?

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

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
