lariat 18's

Please tell me someone has done a leveling kit with 35's on the stock 18's. I wanted the camper package but was unaware that I had to have the 18's when I ordered it. My bad on not checking.

Anyway, I like the look of the 18's but want to see what a leveling kit with 35's look like on them.

I dont have any pics but the stock 18's will do 35's but for any tire i looked at they are too narrow to put a 35x12.5 i believe they are a 18x8 wide and 35x12.5 require a 9" wide. Maybe someone here will chime in for me.

there are a lot of people over on PSN that are running 35x12.50's on the stock 18's

I would just like to see what the all terrains looked like on them with a leveled truck

Lot of people run 35's on stock wheels. They are definitely more narrow than recommended. Probably the biggest issue is whether or not it affects the wear on the tires.I had 35's on my stock 20 inch wheels and didn't have any problems with them. A 10 inch wide rim would probably be the better route, but then there is a cost involved with that. IMO the stock lariat rims look better and are probably better built and balanced.

I was told the 35in tires on stock rims will wear the lips of the rims too knife points over time.On my last truck i could tell the lip of the rims getting thinner and more of a edge.

WOW, I never heard of that, I hade 35 x 12.50's on my stock 20's for my 6.0. ran 100,000 and never had a problem or any thing like that.

I would just like to see what a not so aggressive tire looked like on the wheels with a level kit.

That is not possible. Whoever told you that, knows absolutely nothing about tires or wheels.

Stock rims are 18 x 8.5" which is plenty wide for a 12.5" tire. I ran stock 18 Lariat 18 x 8.5s with 37 x 12.50 for 24,000 miles on my 2008 F250 with no issues whatsoever. They were take-offs of a 2010 truck that the owner wanted to put hideous Bro-rims on (probably RockStar 24's or something like that).

I plan on putting them on my 11 once I lift it and disable the TPMS.
