Need some tire help on my F350

I have a set of tires and wheels for my 1996 F350 4x4. They have BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A Tires with almost new tread, 35x12.50x16.5 size. My first question is what kind of lift will I need, if any to fit these 35" tires under my 1-ton?




Next, I like the wheels I have but I'm looking for something a little different. I am looking at this set of Motometal Wheels but I don't know if they are the correct size of if they will fit with my hubs or tire size. Anyone have any advice for me? I'm not very good at this!

Sell those and buy my 18's! Centerline Wheels

But to answer your question..you need a 3" lift in front and use the 4" rear block.

To have the best ride quality you want to get a RS kit and SD front V codes, rear SD B codes with correctly valved Bilsteins. Longer SS brake lines are required.
I have helped hundreds over the last 8 years since I developed this mod.

If I can help PM me.

I really like the look of those Moto-Metal wheel I just don't know which ones are the correct ones and how the lug nut spacing and what not works. Any help?

If I can get into those wheels I'd be happy to sell the wheels when I swap tires, but I could consider selling the whole set up for the right price. The tires don't have many miles on them which is why I want to run them

all you need to do is a leveling kit and get spacers for your front bumper if they rub.
and you need to drop the factory running boards hits those. Two guys i no did this and no rub

You should just need to trim the inside of the bumper and maybe a leveling kit.
