Icon 4.5" ?? Tire size?

I got a 06 F350 DRW 4x4 I found some Icon suspension lifts, they are a litte pricey but looks quite complete and was going to go with a 4.5" and 35-37" tires. anyone hear of the kit? and reviews? and what size/brand tire would you recommend? I still want to keep most of my towing capacity and the larger tires need to be aggressive because of where i need to go. I tried searching but most of what i got was just pics and no specs so can i get some help here? thank you

first off the icon kit is great. i have their 7" kit with their leafs on the back. good ride and quality components. if going with a 4.5 id stick with the 35" tire. im running 37s and when ive loaded the bed down 3.5-4k lbs ive had problems with the tires hitting the fenders. if you keep your leafs then towing loads will be unchanged. also keep in mind gearing with 37s. i had to swap to 4.30s when i put my 37s on to tow heavy. here is a shot with 8" icon with 37s

They are just being a typical shop that most don't even know what they are talking about half the time.

It is true that they don't recommend from the manufacturer to run that wide of a tire on the wheel but you will have no problems what so ever. Just tell them to do it anyways or go find another shop.
