Really confused about 35's fitting my truck.

I've been doing a little research on here to see if 35's will fit on my truck. The more I read the more confused I get. Some people say yes others say no. Some say with a leveling kit others say wheel spacers. My truck is a 05 f250 4x4 ccsb. I recently purchased a set of Kumho Road Venture MT's in a 35-12.50-17 to go on my stock wheels. So what's it gonna take make them work.

They'll fit with a leveling kit. If you have mud flaps they'll rub slightly at full lock. IMO they don't look very good unless you have a 350, or 350 blocks in the rear.

Tie the fender liners back with zip ties. Throw them on there. No lift kit needed, I don't have any rubbing but have heard others do.

i had 315's (measured a little over 34") on my truck at stock height, i went offroad many times and they never rubbed, you will be fine although a leveling kit will make it look better imo and if you end up getting wider wheels you will need a leveling kit anyways.

They'll fit without a leveling kit, but they'll rub a tad(as aforementioned ) But, you will have issues off-roading with them without leveling up. I 285's rub off-road on bone stock. If you go to a full steering lock and then torque that front end around on some bumps it'll rub. Cheap fix, 2 inch coil spacers! But i'd just throw em on and run em, and if you have issues then you can level then.

Every truck is different. I have seen 35's on stock suspension with no leveling kit and they didn't rub. I run 295/70 18 Nitto Trail Grapplers with no leveling kit and they have never rubbed, however I know I couldn't run 35/12.50's without a leveling kit. Brand of tire has a little bit to do with it to. As Frozen Redneck said, throw them on and if they rub order a leveling kit and you are good to go.
