2008 F-450 leveling kit?

Do any of yall have any pictures of a 2008 F-450 with a leveling kit on stock king ranch wheels and 265/70/19.5 tires? Looking to do it for towing truck but haven't seen to many around any advice??? Any info on the drive tires vs steer tires? Im thinking about putting the drive tires on all 6 for a little bit more aggressive look but what do yall think??

I used the 265/70r19.5 Michelin xde+2 (drive tires) on 19.5 Brentz custom drilled alcoa type wheels(19.5x6.75) with a 2.5" leveling kit on my 06 F350 SWB 4x4 dually with absolutely no rub and no issues whatsoever, and with the next dually I'd do it again.

Stiffer that the stock tires that came on mine(stock were 10ply) the Michelins were 14 ply but not objectionable at all, instead of the 110 lbs of air they recommended I ran 65psi and was fine,,,,piece of advice,,don't buy cheap tires,,you won't be happy, stay with Bridgestone/Michelin.

A set of 14 ply Michelin XDE+2s in 265/70r19.5's will burn a hole through damn near 3 grand.(If you get a decent deal)
