when i bought my 97 F350 it had a leveling kit with 33x12.50 tires on 16.5x12 rims. that combo just fit......so i would have to say 35s wont make it. the leveling kit you get should tell you the size tire you can fit. since i bought my truck ive gone to 33x11.50 tires on 18x9 wheels and it looks awesome.

35s may or may not scrub but either space or trim the bumper and run it

I have 33 x 12.50 x 16.5 on my 250 and they cut it close on clearance but with a leveling kit and being a 350 I would assume they would fit. If not, redneckabbot knows what to do with the shimming the bumper out.

I have a f250 with stock suspension and tried 35x12.5 and the tire barely would hit the bumper when turning. no rub on the springs though. I am getting a leveling kit in a couple days so I know they will fit fine once i put that in with no modification of the bumper.

Here are some pics of my add-a-leaf w/315's. This is the largest I can go - you can see the amount of clearance I have between the fender and tire - With the aftermarket bumper I do not have any issues but I am sure you would have to trim or shim the stock bumper.

Here's a guy that has pics of 35s with no lift and then he ran 37s before finally doing a rsk. But he also has a ranchhand which helps with clearance.
