35'' with no lift?

I was thinking of going with 35'' without a lift. How about some pics. I searched the forum and found alot of 35'' with the leveling kit or 37'' with the leveling kit but no 35'' sittin stock. Pics would be great. Here is how my truck sits now with the stock wheels and tires.

not happening, my dad has a 00 stock on 33s and they rub just alil, and i have a 05 Leveled on 35s and it rubs. if you are using a stock wheel you wont rub leveled but if you are using a aftermarket wheel chances are you are going to rub, just get a level kit there like 200 bucks and look 10x better in my opinon.

He has an 08 and i've seen one with 35's and it barely rubbed at all. You can fit 37's with a level kit so 35's will fit easily. Not sure on the details of that particular truck but they were on stock wheels and stock height.

In my opinion, a level kit would handle them better though. Plus if you decide you want bigger tires, you can move up to 37's

Im gona go with the same width as stock just a inch taller. The stock tires on this truck are 34'' so I dont see them having a issue with rubbing. I drive this truc ALOT and dont want a bad ride. If I did just the front leveling kit yould it make it handle weird. Ive heard about the trucks axles shifting with some lift kits and i dont want that to happen.

I've got a 2008 f-350 with 35/12.5 toyo mts. I have the leveling kit, but haven't put it on. If I would of known they would fit this well, I would have got 37s for my stock rims. Just throw some 35s on there and don't worry about the leveling kit unless your gonna do aftermarket rims.
