I run 285/75/16s (measure 33 inches tall) on my 99 F250 Superduty on factory wheels. I have a 2" leveling kit in the front. You should be to fit 35's on your F350 with a 2" leveling kit without any problems.

The difference between a suspension lift, body lift and leveling kits are:

Suspension lift - replaces springs
Body lift - spacers installed between the frame and body of your truck
Leveling kit - most commonly a add a leaf or extra spring placed in the spring pack

On my 2001 F350 CCSB 4x4, I had a leveling kit with the BFG AT Ko's, 17" 315's which are 34.5 inch tire, I had a rub when turning hard, on the rear inner fender, and they filled up the well tight.. I put on a 4" spring lift, and 35 x 12.5 x 17's,, plenty of travel room and no rub. They look fairly good , fill up the well nice.
