You can squeeze a 35" tire on the truck with no leveling kit. You can squeeze a 37 on with a leveling kit altough i dont recomend either.

I think the best choice is a 35 with a leveling kit.

No, maybe on your radius arms, but a lift won't fix that.

I have 35" tires on my truck with no lift and i only rub at full lock in reverse. I would recommend a leveling kit though. Good Luck

Yeah, if your looking for very minimal, then 35's with the leveling would be it.

ok so 35's with a leveling kit, or what 33's without leveling kit, and as far as leveling kits goes which one does everyone recommend and how hard are they to put in on my driveway?

33's are the equivalent of the standard tire that's provided on the truck before doing wheel upgrades.

To give you an example, the stock tires on my truck were 275/70R18 this computes out to the equivalent of a 33.15" tire size.

BTW, take a look at the following thread for an example of 37's on a stock truck with nothing but a leveling kit.
