Will a 35" tire work??

Hey all, finally getting some work done on my truck this weekend and thinking a little ahead of it. I have a 02 f350 which I will be putting new stock leafs on and a pro comp 2" shackle leveling kit on. (not to mention new ball joints) My question for everyone is this:

Will I be able to fit a 20" wheel with a 35 inch tire on this truck without rubbing issues? I have heard mixed opinions about this. I have a stock 3" block in the back. Hopefully some people will chime in who have done this and had it work (or not work for that matter). So all in all will a 35" tire work and what width rim can I use in a 20?

thanks in advance

It depends on the backspacing of the wheel, but you'll probably just rub a bit on the plastic inner fender. Nothing that can't be fixed with a dremel or a heat gun.

I would use min 3" hanger kit for most 35" . 4.5" BS is whats needed.

I had 35's on my red truck with no add-a-leaf, and they only hit the plastic inner fender, which I took a heat gun to and 'molded' it back a little, just enough to clear the tire. Put the add a leaf on and no rubbing now. Granted, my tires are worn out! Full tread, and they might hit again...
