leveling kit

Anyone know if 36 by 13.5 tires will fit on an 06 F-250 with a leveling kit or will it just look stupid. Also is there anyway i can gain an inch or so without buying the 4inch lift

I am in the same boat you are.It seems lots of peeps are running 35x12.50 with a 2"-2.5" leveling kit with no problems.Some are running the tires on custom wheels with 4.5" back spacing.I was looking for a 4"kit but even they get pricey with the install.I think I may go with a rough country 3" kit for like 500bux.I have a 2005 f350..I also use the truck for work and as a taxi for my kids so a big lift really isn't an option.Good luck..If i'm not mistaken there is somebody on this board running 37x12.50 with a leveling kit and it looks sweet!

For a 36/13.50 I'd recommend a 4" or 4.5" system.

with stock wheels they shouldnt scrub but not gonna say that they wont for sure cause all trucks are different. seen 2 identical trucks before try the same tires on and on one they scrub and on the other they didnt but in your case i kinda doubt that they will with the 2.5 kit. get the 2.5" leveling kit and f350 blocks for the rear and she'll be right.

Im looking for ones that will fit a 17 inch rim. I think the only ones that have a 36 on a 17 inch rim are super swampers, so that prolly what ill go with

Those tires really suck except off road and will rub unless you go to a 4.5" lift!
