35's on Stock Suspension?

Possible? I dont plan on doing any serious off roading, and I do plan on at least a 2" leveling kit in the future, just not now, Im broke after ordering all the parts listed below! But I do need tires, and I would rather buy one set instead of two! What are some Load Range E 35's you guys use?

2000 F350 CC PSD -only 65000 miles....

AFE stage 2, 4" MBRP, Pacbrake Exhaust Brake. Boost, Pyro, and Trans Gauges, DP Tuner, and BTS Valvebody...Dyno'd at 332 hp, 748 ft-lbs.

I know there are some guys that have done it. Not sure if it was on the 99-04, or the 05-07 trucks. I know you will need the leveling kit though. You can usually find them for under $100 for an add-a-leaf. That is what I would do. Works well, and I keep the same ride quality as factory.

It can be done. Just depends on how you feel about taking a sawzall and grinder to your truck.

i took my truck to a spring shop and the added a leaf and re arched the front spring and he got 3 1/2 inches by doing that and they put a 4" block in the back to match it up. those 35 12.50's only rub my leaf springs when i turn it really hard.

What about 33's?

I found a set on Craigslist...Firestone Destination MT 285/75R16's. They should be about 32.8" $775 including the rims, off of an 01, have 3000 miles on them. Anyone have any experience with these?

The Destination M/T is a great tire, last a good while on the road and dig great in the mud. My wife sells them everyday. Matter a fact she just ordered some for my best friend for his hunting truck.

What are the Load Range on them? Are they fine for towing?

Yep, I had a set on the back of a Dodge 3500 cab and chassis, pulled a trailer everyday with thousands of pounds on it sometimes 15,000 #'s they will be fine.
