Time for new rubber.

I have a question for you guys running 35s with a leveling kit...

what do your front springs look like?

My truck has a leveling kit on it, but my springs have some pretty good negative arch going on. Its time for new tires, and a wild hair says 35s would be nice. Its got 305/70s right now and It looks like 35s would fit.... but im unsure.

I don't know what leveling kit it is, I bought it leveled. The wheels are 16x10 Eagle Alloys. (edit: I also still have the stock wheels in my garage)

Tires are going to be BFG A/Ts ..
Im thinking 315/75s or 35x12.5, any worries?

Pic for reference.

If it doesn't move and should: WD40.
If it does move and shouldn't: Duct tape.

Based on your pic it looks tight up front. Might need some bumper trimming.

You can run them but triming and rubbing may be involved.
