I have tires slightly over 33" that are about 11.5 wide, no lift kit. 35s would fit, but the width would probably rub on my truck. Also, it depends on the articulation. In a hard turn with full wheel-up and tire flex... Most of the tire manufacturers or resellers say you need lift or larger wheel-wells. The problem is primarily front body contact under compression while turning.

Best suggestion is to post the tires and rims you want to use and see if someone has installed them on their truck. If no reliable info, mount one and see.

Here are the pics of the tire clearance for my 33.25" on my 01 with the wheels st in the worst position for clearance. Looks like 35s would be too tight without lift or body work. With your coils you might only have the bumper issue.
