I believe you'll need a leveling kit at least.. haven't seen a f350 runnin' alcoas without one.. but that doesn't mean its not out there. It's all just going to be a matter of the size of tire and backspacing of the wheels, but you have to keep in mind your going from stock to an almost 20" wheel and close to 35" (ish) tire.. Good luck though, haven't seen a f250 with semi tires, i'm curious how it'll look..

There was a great thread about this subject somewhere on this site. You should try to find it. I'll look for it too.

Is your truck 4x4 or 2wd. You should be able to fit 245 on your truck the way it is now. 225 are smaller than your current tire only 32" diameter. I have the same configuration truck and am looking at a place near me that sells 19.5s The only thing I can say is that the offset may cause rubbing on the inner fender. My old service truck was on 22.5 and 235 tires and it rubbed at full lock sometimes so I welded a steering limiter on the axle.
