35's with level kit and factory 20's?

I have an 07 crew cab F250 black, 275/65/20 factory tires that are worn and got the death wobble on the front end. I am wanting to know what i can do as far as bigger tire selection. What kind of leveling kit do ya'll recommend? And will a 35-12.50-20 tire work on the factory 20" wheel?

i recommend a Readylift 2.5" KIT. You can retain factory shocks and go with the 35" tire your looking to put on without rubbing. Its like $230 but its a nicce kit

I bought mine used with 35x12.50x20 on the factory rims. Not sure who made the leveling kit though.

I agree, Readylift 2.5" level kit is a real nice kit. And you can buy the blocks for the rear to make the rear higher and level from them also!

295/65/20 nitto trail grappler MT. They are only a hair taller and wider than stock 275/65/20 tires.

Will the 295's fit without any lift??

Depending on what you are looking for and your budget I would go with either the BDS, RCD or Icon:

2005-2007 F250/F350 SRW 4wd - Truck Toyz Store


I would recommend an adjustable trac bar, however it's not "necessary" in order to complete the installation.

I have 2.5'' coils up front with adjustable castor shims and a ready lift 5'' block in the rear. Tires are Toyo 35''. However, I would suggest Readylift for the best bang for the buck.
