You would need a set of spacers and probably a 4in lift.
I had a leveling kit, and I couldn't have fit 35's on it.

Also, IIRC your rims are 7.5'' wide, a 12.5" tire is too wide for that rim.

ID wait for a few more people to post, I feel like Ive seen alot of posts from people that have just leveling kits and run 35's... I may be wrong but IIRC there is a LITTLE rub with leveling kit/35's/stock rims, but with the right aftermarket wheels you might be able to get rid of that... thats all IIRC of course.. I could be wrong

4" hanger kit will allow 35" and keep the best ride quality.

you should clear w/ a 3in hanger kit. i dont believe 35x12.50r16's will fit on your stock rims though
