315's or 35's on a stock f250

has anyone put 315's on a 96 f250 or at least that body style......just bought a set and was wondering if a 2" leveling kit would be sufficient or if a 4" was mandatory...........thanks

I'm running 305's and I had clearance issues with the bumper so I shimmed it out. A friend of mine just went 4" on his 95 and 315's still rub a little.

315's

I have 315 BFG ATs on 16x10 wheels. I trimmed the chrome bumper and it all fits fine. No rubbing. I have a 4" kit and will probably run 37's

So, did you get the lift on it, or is it still in progress? I'd like to see some pics when it's done.

I have a F350, stock except for one extra leaf in the front spring pack. I built 1" spacers for the bumper brackets. I run 315's on the stock wheels. The only issue is that they rub the rear portion of the spring pack. If I had aftermarket wheels with better backspacing, the issue wouldn't be there.

Suspension-wise, though, there's plenty of room. I honestly believe I could run 36's with no problem.

i have 35's on my f250 with just a one inch leveling kit and it doesnt rub at all,did shim the bumper out cause it was to close,but i think my aftermarket rims are helping me clear also.
