Bigger tires?

Has anyone or is it even possible to install 22.5 " tires / rims on Ford F 53 22,000 lbs chassis that came with 19.5" tires / wheels. If it has been done did it improve the ride?

Clearance, gearing , wheels, maybe engine/transmission tune, etc. I would think difficult to cost justify.

For ride improvement think shocks. If handling is a factor then that is another topic.

Lift kit and new tranny should do it

There's more to it than just a simple replacement. Do you even have safe clearance in your wheel wells? And also importantly, will you have proper spacing between your real dual tires? There MUST be a certain minimum spacing between dual tires or you risk damage and blowouts on the rear duals.
