leveling kit wheel/tire size

iam looking into getting the rough country 2.5" leveling kit (shackles) for my 03 f-350. It says it will accept a 305/75/16 tire which is about a 33x12.5. Has anyone done this on their truck and have pictures and what rim offset/ size they used?

leveling kit wheel/tire size

Ok thanks. Iam new to the lifts and wheel spacing. I don't want to have the wheels not fit right after spending that much cash on the setup.

leveling kit wheel/tire size

I ran into the same problem. Then the wheels I want don't know what back spacing to use. Probably just going to call rough country and talk to them.

Level with 35/12.5/18 and they do rub on full lock, but I'm used to it. Stock King Ranch rims.
