biggest tire to fit leveled 350

i have an o8 350 thats leveled. what is the tallest tire that fits without any rubbing? is it a 35" or 37" tire? i was running stock 275 65 20 but have replaced them temporarily for a set of worn 285 65 20 and will be replacing them with an at tire not mud. i am thinking a 37x12.50x20 but fear rubbing so maybe a 35x12.50x20?

I have the same truck in stock configuration and am currently running 305/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers and I'm VERY happy with them. Aggressive enough to pull me through some stuff when hunting, but quiet and smooth on the road. I want to say they measure out to 33" but I'm not positive.

I would go with the 35" in a Toyo. I have recently leveled my F350 and a 35" is as big as I will go.

well they would be....whats confusing? i put the 35's on my unleveled 350 and nothing is close to rubbing. if its leveled i would try the 37's if you dont like it, have them take them right off and go with the 35's.......i used the toyo m/t's but Ive seen Les Schwab's knock off of that and its pretty much the same look for 1/3 less cost

i am confused because all keep saying that 35's are the biggest and thats almost what i have now..... just dont want the rub....... but its not worth the change in stock to 35 for the price....

Not totally sure about the standing height differences between you 08 and my 05, but when I bought mine it had 37x12.50 with a 2" level under the front. I have gone back to 35's. It is a little easier to slide under the trailer with the 35's, but it looked better with the 37's.. No rubbing with either tire while on the road. The 37's may have rubbed with some off road steep angles, but I never tried. They were almost slicks.

I would think 37's would be fine without rubbing. I have a leveled F250 that is 2WD so it's lower to begin with and I run 35's. It only slightly rubs at full lock to the right going forward. Doesn't rub for anything else and I mean just barely rubs. If it were a 4 X 4 it wouldn't rub at all and probably could do the 37's. I could have sworn I've seen several threads in the suspension section of members running 37's on leveled 4 X 4's.
