35's on stock height 350?

I'm running 285/70R16's on my truck right now, which seems to amount to a height of 32.9". It appears that there is a lot of room there. I don't think its lifted, but it looks high lol

Anyways, I'm looking at getting a set of 18" or 20" American Racing wheels, and then getting some 35x12.50 Nitto Mud Grappelers.

I don't think there should be an issue, and I plan to do a 6.5" lift in the future, but I was hoping I could squeeze some 35's under there now.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

During normal driving? or under turning situations? Would I be better off doing the 33x12.50?

Yeah since I have leaf's up front, I'm worried I'll rub under full lock with the bigger tires...

The wheels I'm looking at have a -25 offset (20x10), so I'd imagine they would stick out a lot, but I'm not sure if that would help with rubbing issues...

Yeah I am by no means a suspension and tire guru Just basing my opinion on what I have seen from other members on here with oversized tires. You could always buy the tires and rims and if they don't fit put the stocks on till you get the lift

That's not a bad idea either!

I have a 2005 F350. I am running 36 X 15.50' s on my truck with 2 inch leveling kit up front and Bushwacker cut out fender flares. I had to trim the inner pinch welds and some off the plastic inner fender wells, I do not rub at all even with full suspension compression.
