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

06 f350: 8" ICON 2.5 resi's, ouo ala's, pmf track bar, dual stabilizers, custom 5" exhaust, 37" BFG km2's, 4.30s, 08 tailgate w/step, 08 tail lights, coolant filter, BPB oil cooler w/p 58v ficm and radiator, ARPs, 175cc, MTW s1 billet, ported intake, egr delete, onboard air and gearhead tunes
All the above just to haul the 900hp street mustang

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.
