What size wire for the panel box going to the meter box

By Panel box, you're referring to the breaker box, correct?

#4/0 Aluminum, Aluminum Clad Wire, or #2/0 Copper.
They will allow you to use the full amperage of your electrical service without too high of a voltage drop.
However, I recommend that you consult with a licensed electrician to determine the appropriate wire size for your specific installation, as there may be other factors to consider such as local building codes and regulations.
Or even the distance between the panel box and meter box, and the voltage of the electrical system.
Is there anything else I can do for you today, *****?
