I have a add a leaf and run 285's with no problem, don't think you can run a 35 (315) with out shimming the bumper.You still might rub the springs on hard turns.

My suspension is still stock height and bumper is in its factory spots and I'm running 285's with no problem.

so without it i can run 33" tires. i would just think that if im lifting the front 1.5" that 35 tires would fit but i could be wrong. maybe i should just run some 33's

If you want to run 35's I would get a 20X9 wheel. 20X10 will stick out pass the fender to much.

Obviously different manufacturers measure their tires with different rulers, but anything in the 34"-35" range (I.E. 295, 305, or 315 75 R16) will rub your bumper and or springs when you start doing sharp turning or flexing it out off the pavement if you're stock. I'm running 285 75 16 Pathfinder ATs right now but their only 32" and I didn't have any problem running them stock or now with my 2" leveling kit.
