What are largest tires can have on Transit if get larger wheels?

Saw the BFG KO2s at Costco and wondering how large I can go with new wheels. Would like something beefy looking that has good traction on dirt and gravel roads and snow plus decent on highway.

Anyone put big KO2s on their Transit?

Ordered 7-21-15, VIN rec'd 7-24-15, built 9-18-15, delivered 10-9-15.
2016 Transit Van XL 250, Ingot Silver, extd length, high roof, 3.5L EcoBoost, 3.31 LS axle, SRW, HD tow pkg, upfitter switches, windows all around, running board, privacy glass, keyless entry, autolamp, engine block htr, remote start, perimeter anti-theft, reverse sensing, HD batteries & alt, aluminum wheels.
Will have Quadvan 4x4 convert and then start campervan conversion.

I saw where Eric H got the BFG All Terrain KO2 245/75/16 just now on that thread, look great and sounds like works well...
Bummer, I like Costco. So buy them wherever and have some local tire shop mount?

What is the bolt pattern I need (see below for Transit model)? I like one of these in black or something similar: http://www.jcwhitney.com/pro-comp-29...239y2016g2u0j1

Thanks!

Find a shop which will mount tires you bought from their competitor before you order. Might impact the economics of the deal.

My dealer just told me there are no aftermarket wheels that fit the Transit yet--is this really true???
