Ya 35s will fit. Id go with a 2". The 2.5" may require 1" rear blocks to level.

While a standard 35 inch tire will technically fit and clear on your truck, you asked about the "proper tire size". Based on the factory rim widths for these trucks, almost all 35x12.50x20 tires are specified for a rim that is wider than what our trucks have. Putting too wide of tire on too narrow of a tire results in funky handling, reduced load capacity, and reduced tire life. For these reasons I reccomend a "skinnier" tire if you want to retain the factory wheels. A good size would be 295x65x20. A little over 35" tall, and about 11" wide. Rated for a 20x8 wheel.

Good Luck.
