Can't find a strait answer on Rough Country leveling kit!

So i bought a Rough country 2.5" leveling kit for my 2004 F-250, and im wondering what the largest size tire i can fit on the truck is with 17" wheels. I want to go with the Mickey Thompson classic lock II, and i upgraded to the nitro 9000 Shocks if that makes any difference. I tried to do a search and cam up with many different answers, to include bigger tires than what Rough country's website says was wondering if anybody has this set up or if any one can just give me a strait answer. Thanks!

with the right backspacing i would think u would be ok with 35x12.50....maybe a little rubbin on tight turns and hills....but other wise would be good..

Depends on if its all on road or you get off road..plus back space and tire width. What code springs you have and how much they have sagged..Shocks won't make any difference to clearance.

Mickey Thompson says the back spacing is 5 and i got the new springs with the kit so i dont think that sagging will be an issue and i want to go with 12.50 with on a 9" wide wheel. Any more advice cuz im really leaning towards the 35x 12.50 unless any one can give me a reason not to, and is the rubing on the fenders, bumper, or the springs?
