2012 with 35s, need lift?

I have 2012 f250 XLT. I was looking at a set of 35s off a 2006. First question is will they fit?. I measured front and back from hub to wheel well, and there is only 1/2 inch difference. So, I don't imagine a leveling kit is what I need, but I would think I need some lift to fit the 35s. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks...

You can fit them without a lift. Its the wheel offset and widths that become a problem. On stock wheels it will be fine, on say a 20x10 it will definitely not be at stock height and will rub

With 35's and aftermarket wheels with a nice offset, a 2.5" lift looks great in our opinion! Perfect fit..

I am not sure on the 18" tires the height but on the 20" king ranch from the factory the tire height is 34.88 (or 34.48)its late but either way they are 35's and when i switched to 18" FROM 20'S due to 20" tire prices the 35" made the speedo read exactly the same. The only thing when I turned the wheel all the way to on way left/right I had to trim a piece of plastic about the size of my thumb.

Oh and the extra rubber helps the ride quality, as you get more rubber to cushion the ride. Compared to the 20"s where you have less rubber =less cushion.
