i have same truck as you. All i have is a leveling kit. I think the tire is line 34.6x12. I dont rub at all

2000 ford f-250 leveled off, crew cab, headlight upgrade, gauges; pyro, boost, tranny. 6637 intake. 06 lariat dash/seats/interior. DP tuned. A dash of this, a dash of that

It all depends on what wheel you are using. 8 and below will work with a leveling kit, but my 16x10s required AT LEAST 5" of lift. Just a personal thing, I don't like running a 12" tire on an 8" wheel regardless of how tall it is.

WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!

Buddy of mine has an 03 with no leveling kit or trimming. Stock wheels, minor rubbing on inner fender and leafs

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

16x10's require 5 inches of lift?

If you're going to be a concrete four wheeler, maybe not, but if you intend to go off road like I do, yup. Even with 5" I have stuffed my tires into the trailing edge of my fenders. In fact, I've stuffed them going into a parking lot if the wheel is turned right.

Again, a skinny wheel works for fitment but not so great for even tread wear. Even with my 10s I only run 45 psi to get even tread wear. By even tread wear, I mean using a coin as a depth gauge and checking across the tire.

I ran 305s on a leveled 00 on 16x10s and they looked good. you run 315s on a leveled truck and I dont care what you run for wheels it looks crammed.

I know that, that why I made sure to mention that he was using the stock rim

Personally, i don't think its a great look

I also dont like tire sticking waaaay out the side unless its covered by flares.
To each their own though
