How much tire when leveled?

Hey guys, I have a '01 F350 SRW with a kustom diesel level kit (add-a-leaf), and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how big a tire I can run without rubbing. I would like to run a 35x12.50, but don't want any issues. I will be using the stock 16" wheels that came on the truck.
Thanks for the help.

I have 35's on my red truck (285's in sig pic) on aftermarket wheels that space them out a bit, and only rubbed the inner fender liner, and the back edge of the front bumper. I trimmed the bumper, and used a heat gun to re-mould the plastic fender liner back a little. With stock wheels, and the backspacing bringing the tire closer to the center of the truck, you may have some rub on the leaf springs at full lock, and less of an issue with the bumper and fender liner like I did...



35's before add-a-leaf
