HOW BIG OF TIRES

Ok so i bought a 1996 powerstroke f-350 crew cab and when i bought it im sure it is higher than stock because she put "camper springs" on it and i dont know how much higher it would make it so im wondering if i could fit 35's under it with now rubbing???? by the way i do offroad a lil bit. So if you could give me some help it would be appriciated.

I'd say a good 4" of lift is needed to clear 35s comfortably, especially if you want to go wheeling.

33's should fit no problems. It's been a while since I thought about bigger tires, I can't remember what would fit. I'm sure someone has tried 35's.

Leveling kit and trim the front bumper... you'll probably still rub at full lock off camber...
