35*12.5 tires on stock susp.

i have a 2005 f-350 with no suspension mods and i am wondering how big of tires i can go. i have 33*9.5's on 17's now with lots of room leftover but i recently purchased some 20*10 rims and want to know how big i can go. I know that 35*12.5 will fit on a 2008 f-350 with no rub but i am not sure on the 05. also how can one tell the offset of his rims because i believe the ones i purchsed are offset to stick out more but am not sure by how much. Has anyone put 35's on there stock 2005?

there have been alot of talk on here lately about fitting 35's on stock or a leveling kit to fit 35's, etc. No lift, 35's - all those things.

Generally speaking - seems a 2" leveling kit is most common pratice to fit 35's.

Leveling kits are pretty cheap too.

I have 33x12.5's on stock 16" Lariat rims (16x7) on my 2nd set now - they work fine and about 1/2" clearance to teh back of the fender well at full turn. Full compression wont hit. But I'm doing the 2" add-a-leaf front and back - you might want to consider a 2"" level front coils or coil spacers to give you the lift - I think the spacers are pretty easy to install and cheap too.

with a 4" lift you can still have a fair amount of suspension travel and the ability to hop curves withought rubbing...My 2 cents

I installed 35" Toyo's on stock 18" rims with no lift. I had a very slight rub with the inner fender plastic. Lock to lock would also rub the radius arms. I installed 3" lift springs from rancho along with there new trac bar, this corrected the plastic rubbing, but I still have the radius arm rubbing.

NOTE:
I do not like the 18's w/35" Toyo's due to spongy filling, most likely from the large sidewall. Wanting 20's w/35" toyo's.

your good to go

i had 35's with no lift or leveling kit when i first got my truck rubbed at full turn on the arm but nothing to be worried about at all.... did not hurt the tires at all... And i like to take the occasional short cut if you know what I mean
