I've heard different opinions on both. I have a leveling kit, 18" wheels with 4.53" backspacing and 33x13s and I had to trim the front valance and zip tie the inner fender well back to keep it from rubbing. You might be able to run a 35x12.50, but you need maximum backspacing! 4.5" or lower would be recommended.

I think I would probably go with 33's so it would be like a 305/55/20 maybe BFG mud terrains

I have an 03 with a 2.5" leveling kit and am running 35x12.50x20 tires with no rubbing even at full lock. The lift shop just had to trim a little off of the inner fender and wheel well.

I'm not sure on the back spacing but my wheels are 20x10 bmf novakanes with a -19 offset.

Here are a few pics with my new Toyo Open Country AT2 xtreme tires (please excuse how dirty it is).

I hope this gives you a good idea of how it will look with those size tires.
