Level kit and tire size question

hey, i just want to know what all i need for a leveling kit or what a good one is for my trucks set up. not trying to break the bank as i just bought a lot of stuff for it. also can 35x12.5x16 fit with the leveling kit just fine? i currently have 305-70/16 and they fit fine and kinda look small even with rough tread.

you can fit 35" tires on a stock truck with stock wheels with minimal rubbing, with a level kit the rubbing is less but can still be there.

ALSO the more aggressive the tire the worse the rubbing"sound"

nope wont fit. keep looking.
try Home - Discount Tire Direct, i've had great service from them. i've ordered all my tire from them for almost 10 years now, then I either put them on myself, or take the tires to a shop.

What size block is in the rear of the truck? My truck sat dead level with a 2.5 inch leveling kit and factory f350 blocks in the back. It now sits dead level with 3.5 inches of lift in the front and a 5 inch block in the back. I cleared 35x12.50s with the leveling kit too.
