Leveling kit and tire size?

I am looking at leveling a 350 and putting 37x12.50 tires. Has anyone tried this setup?

I'm levelling the front end of my F250 and essentially replacing the rear blocks for F350 blocks so I still have a fwd rake and 37's will fit.
Two of my buddies have levelled '06 F350s and they run 37 x 12.5 on 18's BFG Muds KM2s and they have no issues.

i dunno about the '11 and '12 MY trucks but the largest that a 99-10 truck can take with a leveling kit is a 315/75/16 or a 35/12.50 eqivalant. Now, if you went to Semi wheels and tires and used a 255/70/22.5 setup, those are 36" tall, but much narrower than the 315's and they will clear. the 37's are too tall on our trucks.

What kit are you using? I ordered the BDS 2.5" kit with the 1.5" taller block. I'll be putting that on when I get back home from vacation.

I'd have to agree that the 37's would be to tall with just a leveling kit. I have 35's on my stock height truck now and they just clear.

I run 37" tires on my '10 with just a leveling kit. I would think you could run 37s on a '12 with a leveling kit.

I gave up on the 37s. Ended up with 35x22 on 22x10 w/ +10 offset. Icon stage 4 leveling kit w/ King shocks.

To bad you settled on the 35's. I stuffed 37x12.50r20's with just a level kit (ready-lift) Had to do some minor trimming of the inner fender but it works and looks great. My 08 had a 6" Pro-Comp with 37's but I guess in getting older I like the lower height.

I couldn't find an AT 37" that didn't lose it's E rating or be wider than a 12.5 which the consensus is that is max.

So I jumped up to the 22 hoping that by the time I wear these 35s out there'll be a 37x22 AT I like.
