35's on leveled f250

What do you guys think? I have 33s on my F250 now and I am thinking about going with 35s and was wondering if there would be any clearance issues? Also I'm debating on some 20" wheels off from a newer King Ranch to go along with it. The truck is just leveled and has F350 blocks in the back. I just have the 16" factory wheels at the moment. Also was wondering if the backspacing is different with the newer than my 2001 trucks wheels?

The back spacing is different and will cause issues.
Better option is to just buy some new wheels that you like.

35's should fit though, you might have minor rubbing issues.

Yes you will have issues, the coiled front end allows for the wheels to be tucked in a bit more where ours have leaves and the tires will rub on the leaves at full turn. 33's on newer wheels would probably work but not positive.

I put my dads wheels off his 11' on my 2000 and they rubbed on the leaves and on the front mudflap. If i had the newer front end i would have been fine. Would love to do the swap some day.

Ok thanks. Yea honestly there's not a ton of aftermarket wheels that I like, I guess I'm a little old school and just like wheels that come off some of the newer super duties. I just think that 35s on my stock 16s mightobit look a little iffy.

A lot of people run the newer wheels on our trucks.. it just requires a spacer to help correct the offset.. most run a 2 inch spacer, and I would strongly suggest running a high quality steel spacer (Fred Groeske comes to mind) over the cheap ebay aluminum ones. With the wheels in that offset, with the spacer, you might have some minor rubbing issues and will need to trim the front valence and the rear fender liner.

35s will fit but they will need some trimming of the inner fender to fit.

No they won't.

35's with newer OEM wheels will rub the leafs. You will need 2" spacers if that's what you want. You'd be better off getting aftermarket wheels with offset correction to run a 35" tire than to get spacers though.

I'm sure many of us on here have read spacers are bad, but who out there can actually claim they have ran spacers with quality Timken bearings and can 100% attribute that is was the spacers fault and not other factors that could have also contributed to the bearing fail like ball joints, steering arms loose, alignment, out of balance tires, etc.

To my knowledge, Fred Goeske has no lawsuits pending due to bearings failing from 1000's of his spacers sold.

my 05 f350 is leveled and I run 35's, the only time it rubs is on the drivers side when I got the wheel cranked all the way to one side. it's minimal so I trimmed a tiny bit and I'm good. I run the XD revolver with a slight offset 18" rim.

This is what everyone's talking about, 370 for spacers made from steel isn't a bad deal.
