The 35's may rub your wheel well plastic a little before you pu tthe leveling kit on. But all you have to do is cut your wheels wells with a box cutter where the tires have been rubbing. They should be alright tho.

i had 35's on my truck with no leveling kit and it only rubbed on the left side and all i did to fix it was take a drill and drill two holes in the flat at the bottom and pulled it back with a zip tie and it hasnt rubbed since

You can also use a propane torch to heat up the plastic just enough so its flimsy enough to bend back. Then throw a cup of water on it and the plastic will stay bent back out of the way...

Never done it to my truck before, but done it to plenty of buddies trucks! Those small propane torches work the best. they put out a flame the size of a sharpy marker. Makes it easier to melt a little at a time...

As far as the tire vs. rim width goes, an 8" wide rim is the minimum for a 12.5 tire. And if my memory serves me right, our factory rims are 8" wide. I'm currently running 35/12.50 on my factory 20's and no leveling kit other than F550 front springs with no problems. The springs didn't quite add an inch, and there are plenty of others doing this as well. It's a nice looking setup.
