Can I Fit 35s?

I have a 2005 F250 4x4 FX4 with a 2.5" Leveling kit. I was wanting to know if anybody has any idea if a set of MasterCraft 35x12.5R17 CTs on a set of Mickey Thompson Side Biters will fit?

Yes, they will fit, depending on the backspacing of the wheels, they will not rub. Mine don't on my 350

As mentioned wheel back spacing has a lot to do with it. In general tho, a 35 x 12.5 is about the largest tire you can go with without some serious modification or lift.

The factory wheels have a 35-42mm offset and the new wheels have 0mm offset. Is this a problem? Does that put my wheel closer or further out?

I just bough a spring spacer kit off of Ebay and I'm pretty happy with it. Here is the link:
