wheel & tire fittment

I know you alll have heard or answered this beat to death question before,but im currently on the road and viewing this site from my cell phone so my searching options are limited.
I have a 2005 f250 crewcab shortbed,current tire size is 265 70 r17.my question is this.i heard you can fit 35's with no lift just a level kit,but can you fit a 35x12.50 on a 17x10 rim with just a level kit,and if it fit would it look all hunkered in and or rub everytime i turn?if anyone is running this setup and has some pics i would greatly appreciate you posting them,and any input would be great.

With proper backspacing (5.00"-5.50") you should be able to run a 35x12.50R17 on a 17x9" wheel under a leveling kit. A 17x10" would be pushing it. Might be possible, but I wouldn't suggest it.

Thanks,

I would be inclined towards a 4.5" lift to run a 10" wide wheel, again with 5"-5.5" backspacing. You should have no significant rubbing at that point. Or you could always go with an Icon 2.5" leveling system with the T.E.I. spacer, netting out to 3.5" of lift and likely be fine.

Every truck is of course slightly different, and when it comes to rubbing slight differences can make all the difference, so it's tough to guarantee anything.

Thanks,
