tires and wheels

i have a 2007 regular cab f250. i would like to add some tires and wheels but how big and wide can i go? i got the snowplow package added when i bought the truck so i will not need a leveling kit. i would like to run 35s on 17" wheels. what would i need to do to clear 35x12.50 mickey thompson baja atz or mtz's. is there any full 2" lift kits out there besides leveling kits. can i run 17x10 wheels on 33 or 35 x12.50s? with adding larger tires. how much of a highway rpm drop will i see with running cruise control. im currently running 2200 rpms at 70-75mph with the stock bfgs. if any of yall have mtz's, what kind of highway wear are yall getting out of them?

I have got a 06 f350 and run 17x9 eagle alloy wheels and 33x12.5r17 mickey thompson mtz and no leveling kit and they work great, I could of went up to 35's but was not sure at the time when i purchased them. But my next set will be 35's. The highway manors are really suprisingly good not real loud (but I have a diesel engine so can't hear to much) but I have about 3000 miles on them before I took them off for the winter and still looked brand new.
I really like the look and the performance of the tire hope this helps.

No I don't have any pics of them on my truck since it is winter I have my winter wheels and tires on my truck. But i can take some pics of the wheels and tires they are sitting in the garage just waiting to get put back on the truck. They sure do make my truck look like a whole different truck.

It doesn't take much to fit 35's on these trucks. Just be sure you get the proper offset so they don't tuck in too much or stick out too far.
