No you dont need a leveling kit, i had 315/75 R16's on my truck when it was stalk height they just rubbed the leaf springs at full crank, so you need wheels that are spaced out a little but other then that they fit fine.

You need a leveling kit or get stupid looking wheels sticking out too far...you need the leveling kit. On my 97 250, I put a 2 1/2" lift on with 33x12.5 16.5 tires and I had to cut a small part of my bumper off.

97 F350's sit higher then 97 F250's, you should not need a leveling kit, and even with a leveling kit your tires will still rub the leaf springs, so you will still need to have your wheels spaced out.

I have a 95 f350 with no lift and 35s fit with no problem. I did have to cut about an inch off the front bumper. I cut on an angle and it looks factory.
