Exclamation 35" tire clearance question

Hey all, I just put a rough country 2" leveling kit on my truck...I also bought Bushwacker Pocket Style fender flares.
I have factory 17"x7.5" wheels...
Will 35x12.50 tires or 315's rub in this application???

Also, how about if I put aftermarket wheels on later, will this be a clearance problem?

Please help with any input.

Thank you very much for your thoughts and time.

Tim

I have a 4.5inch lift and no flares and my offset 35s rub a bit at full **** when bottoming out. They rub the little rubber fender well that goes under the truck. Not too worried about it.

I think most folks run Wheel Spacers, in the pre-2005 trucks, which have leaf springs up front...

Oh yeah, and I got my new Cooper Discoverer STT's put on yesterday...They don't even come close to rubbing. Loving them so far. I went with the 35x12.5-17
