Not sure what the biggest tire size that will clear, Joe, but the largest tires available from the factory were 800 14's. these were standard on Furys only. Other models used the lower profile 750 14's.

Hey Joe. The 17's I had on my car were 245/45/17 on the fronts and 275/45/17 on the back. And mine was lowered . I never had any issues . I could have gone a little taller if I wanted too.
