New wheels and Tires (update)

Finally got it all on pics are at the bottom

I am going to need a set of tires in a couple months and was thinking of going with some new wheels also. I have a 2001 crewcab f250. I was looking at some 20X9 w/4.5" back spacing and 35x12.50 tires. My truck is stock as far as suspension goes and was wandering what I need to fit this combo under it without any clearance problems. I have searched a ton of post but get conflicting answers. Some says a leveling kit will do it others say you need a 4" lift. I know several of you know allot more about this than I do. Just looking for some input.
Thanks

Here is the truck

I personally like my set up cause the ride is still decent and you can fit a nice rim and tire package without triming anything.

This was my 04. 5.5" lift in front and 4" in back. 35x12.50 20 tires. No rubbing. Still low enough to haul tandem dual gooseneck trailers.

All i have is a leveling kit on mine and i run a 35x12.5x18. I like it low for better performance and when hauling a camper on the back while towing. 4" lifts look good also but my truck came leveled on 33's so i stuffed the 35's in there. Had to take off the front mudflap casue it would rub while turning. Looks better without the front flap anyway i think so it all worked out.

No pics on my work computer but can post some when i get home.

Also i prefer a 18" rim over anything bigger as you still have a decent amount of sidewall. I drive on gravel roads and through deep mud a lot and the bigger sidewall protects the rims more. Just somethig to think about. My friends that have 20's all wish they went with 18's due to where we use our rigs and the rims just get beat to sh*t.

I might but it will probably a month or 2. These tires still have a little left on them.
