2014 F250 Lift and Tires Inquiry
I have recently purchased a new 2014 F250 and I would like some input about finding a suitable wheels and lift kit for my new truck. The main purpose of the lift is strictly for aesthetic value. I will primarily be driving my truck on the highways and see very little off road action. Having said that, I have some questions about the rims and tires first and the appropriate lift kit for the combination of wheels chosen.
I am looking at a 20x10 Combat SS8 American Force wheel with a -25ET Offset/4.5" Backspacing. I'd like to run either some Interco SS M16 35X12.50R20 tires or some Interco SS M16 37X13.50R20 tires. Given the Backspacing of the Rim, If I were to opt for the 35s, would I encounter any issues of rubbing or wear with the stock setup of the truck? (I will definitely put a Carli Commuter 2.0 Leveling Kit if this setup is chosen.)
If I chose the 37s, would a 4.5 inch lift (Carli Back Country 2.0 Lift System) provide me with enough clearance to eliminate any possible rubbing or wear to the truck without having to "modify" the fender wells, bumper spacing, radius arms, etc?
I'd like to stay around the 4.5 inch lift range because I plan to be accessing the back of the truck on a regular basis. Also going to work out a deal with the local Ford Dealership to have them install the lift kit so as to not void the factory warranty on the vehicle.
Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. (If anyone is running a similar setup with their F250 pictures would be greatly appreciated so I can get a visual reference to help with my decision.)
