35" Tires on Stock 350?

So I have a 2011 F350 Crew LB with the 18" Wheels. I want to run a set of the M/T ATZ LT305/70R18 but need to know with it clear in the front or do I need to get a leveling kit at the very least. 1400.00 in tires I am really not trying to spend any more than I have to.

I'd think it would clear but might rub at full lock on the suspension if you're still using stock 18's. Would definately be interested in pics once you get it installed

Dealer told me last week that 35s would fit on my '12 350 with no suspension mods...I'm hoping he's correct.

Well I am trying to hold out until after Christmas to get new tires. Damn things are so expensive I may have to buy two at a time LOL and wait to put them on.

I'm thinking of leveling the front with a Ready Lift...inexpensive and had good luck with it on my Tundra...then slapping 35s on the stock 20s...probably going with the Nitto Trails or Terras...but you're right, damn expensive rubber these days. I miss buying BFG 33s for $70 per corner...

Yeah I am in the same boat. I want the ready lift kit and have seen it on a 2011 and it levels it out nicely. But 400 a tire is really just a big chunk of change. That is why I am going to stick to my 18"s and also why I am going to the M/T's. I had them on my ram and the wear was great compared to the Toyo's and the Nitto's.

I've had Nitto Terra Grappler 20" 33s on my Tundra for almost 50K now...and I bought them used w/ 4K miles on them...still have at least 10K left on the tread. I drive a lot...like 40-50K per year...and I rotate every time I change the oil. I'm surprised at how even the Terra's wear pattern has been...makes me scared to switch to the Trails...but I like the looks of the Trails better.

If I'm not mistaken 305's are closer to 33's. 315's are 34.5 inches. I am pretty sure.
