No. With a leveling kit, you can run pretty much any rim you want with a 35 inch tire. Theres a member here Nola with 22x11 in rims with a -44 offset and 35 inch tall tires, and he just has a leveling kit.

If you stay close to the stock off set you can run a 35" tire with no lift and minor rubing

I have 285 70 BFG M/T tires on 17x9 helo wheels with no lift and still have room to run at least a 305 tire, the OEM mudflaps take up alot space, you can take a screw to push them back farther or take em off.
