Stock height and 35"

Have a F350 and thinking of dropping the lift(has a 4.5) but keeping my 35's on there. It is a Fx4, will they clear and does anyone have pics of their rigs like this? Thanks.

The fit just fine as long as you have the correct backspacing on your wheels.


The backspacing on my wheels is 5.38 with a +10 offset. The tires are 325/65/18s.

They just barely rubbed the inner fender liner when I got them installed so I trimmed it back with a pocket knife. It took about 10 minutes to do and you can't even tell unless you know what you're looking for. The tires don't rub anywhere now.

I don't see why not. These trucks came with 34" tires from the factory.

The ride isn't the greatest but I love the look of it.

I have 35x12.5 toyo m/t on stock wheels and suspension and they fit great. Minor rubbing on the inner fender liner, but did some minor trimming and have no issues.

do you think I could run 35s on a wheel with 5.5 backspace and 14 offset with stock lift

My wheels are 14 offest, I am running 35x12.50 with no problems. The only thing I did was take a zip tie and pull back the inner fender less than a half inch, probably could have got by with out doing that, but just didn't want it to ever rub or catch.

Heres some pics of mine if it helps.
Got my new wheels and tires on!
