What Lift to fit 35's on 20x10?

Got a new 2010 F250 coming in a couple more weeks. Already bought the wheels and tires for it. Went with 35x12.5x20 Toyo Open Country MT and Mazzi Hulk 20x10 black wheels with 4.5" backspace.

With this combo on a F250 what will I need for a lift so it doesn't rub? I was originally thinking of ICON 2.5 leveling kit but I'm not sure if this will be enough.

Any thoughts or pics of trucks with similar setups?

On my 07 I am running 35x12.50 on a set of moto metal 956 that are 20x10. my lift is a Rancho 4inch kit with 1 inch Icon TEI Spacers under the front coils and add a leafs in the rear. Its the perfect set up with no rubbing at all. I would recommend at least a 4 inch kit.

How do you like the Rancho? It seems everyone here is ICON ICON ICON. Hoping to see some more replies as to pros and cons of whatever choices there are to fit my tire and wheel combo.

2.5 should be sufficient. my buddy runs 20x10s with the bfg km2s. they pencil out to be 35s.
now that i think of it, he did pin the inside of the wheel well back to keep from rubbing at full lock.
and now i just remembered backspacing comes into play.

My buddies truck was running 35x12.5x17's on pro comp 17x9 rims with just a leveling kit up front, no rubbing at all. This was an F350, so the blocks are larger in the rear.

12.5's you should be ok with the 2.5". The 13.5's are a different story. I have the 20inch mazzis and pro comp 6 inch lift and they rub full lock.

weird, i know.

are you asking whats the widest tire to fit on the eagle 20x8.5?

If so, you can run the 35x12.5x20s. The tires are "recommended for (i think) 10" width, but i think it looks good to have some meat hanging off the side *that's what she said*

pic of 12.5"s on 8(.5) " wheel



these are bald as ****, but you get the idea...
