best tires for carli pintop 2.5" leveling kit

I have a 2012 f-250. i am wanting to install the carli pintop 2.5" leveling kit once my factory tires wear. what would be my best tire option for this kit? i want to run factory 20" rims. i like the toyo open county m/t. looks like the LT315/60R20 is a 35" tire. would this be a good choice for factory rims? if anyone has pictures of this set up i would love to see them. thanks

I would recommend the tallest tire that you can find. That will help the ride as much as possible since you want to stick with the 20's. But keep in mind that most tires taller then 35" will rub on the radius arms at full lock when combined with the factory wheels. This is a non-issue with most aftermarket wheels.

I'm running 35 1250 18's on my stock height 2011 and they don't rub at all.

37's might ride better for you due to added sidewall height, my 37-13.50's on stock 18's rub at full lock. What do you plan to use the truck for?

Can you run 37" tires with a carli leveling kit?

I ran 37" Toyos on mine and I'm sure it would work with the right wheel (5.5" backspacing) with slight rub on radius arm.
