2012 with 35s

I have 2012 f250 XLT. I was looking at a set of 35s off a 2006. First question is will they fit?. I measured front and back from hub to wheel well, and there is only 1/2 inch difference. So, I don't imagine a leveling kit is what I need, but I would think I need some lift to fit the 35s. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks...

35" on stock 11+ no problem at all. I have seen 37" with just a 1.5" leveling kit. I have 34.5x11.8 on my stock 18" rims and have over an inch clearance with the steering wheel locked either way.

37" with a leveling kit would 38" fit with a 4" lift, I have a 13"

I think the width is what will kill you on 38" tires. Isn't 13.5 about the skinniest 38" tire?

Everything I am finding is 35 inch tires on stock or level trucks. 37 inch tires with 4.5 lift. But not really anything bigger Until you get like 6 inches of lift.

Well toyo makes a 37*13.50*24, I'd rather stay a little lower with a smaller tire, it seems the more research I do the more confusing it gets...
