Find some OEM 20's.
Also, dont level a 250. I'll be dragging a$$ down the highway with any sort of weight behind it. My car on trailer which is barely 6500lbs drops my 250 to level. If the front was another 2" in the air it would be a pretty pitiful sight.
When I leveled my 05 I did 4" rear blocks and I never really had an issue with 'excessive' squat while towing even a 16' box with all my household stuff in it while moving. Probably 5-6k total weight. It did squat but maybe one inch lower than the front if that. Standard 250 suspension no overloads, no bags
I am defiently getting the 35's in the coming month now. I was understanding that I needed at least a leveling kit to run these. Should I go with the leveling kit or just go with a 4" lift? This is mostly just for the looks. Like I said above, I do tow a 21 foot boat as well as a snowmobile trailer, but neither are a ton of weight. Just looking for some suggestions
I don't know about the 05 trucks, but I just put 35x12.50s on my stock 20s with stock suspension and I have no rubbing at all. That is an option for you, but I am going to level my truck because it really sets the 35s off IMHO.
If you are wanting to stay fairly low, I would just do a 2.5" kit up front and 4" blocks in the rear. I did all readylift parts and I think it cost me $350 for everything shipped. The only "complaint" I had was I needed an adjustable trac bar or a trac bar drop bracket. The 2.5" lift shifted my axle about one inch toward the driver side. Not really that noticeable but it did cause a VERY minor rub at full lock on the driver side inner fender liner. I pulled the liner back about a half inch and no issues. I sold the truck before I had a chance to put atrac bar or drop bracket on it though.
2005 F250 leveled on 325/65/18 with XD Hoss black/polished wheels:
With a 16' box trailer hooked up (I snaped this before I had a chance to adjust my hitch receiver so the trailer was level.
