im looking for a set up for my f250

I have had several sets of the toyo open country tires on my cummins. They were decent but not nearly as good as the nitto terra grapplers. I got alot more milage out of the nittos.
However the best wearing tires I ever had were the faulken wild peak. They are not nearly as aggressive as mud terrain but they still look great and I easily got 45k miles plus out of them compared to the 25k on the toyos and 35k from the nittos.

I do a ton of driving, about 50k miles a year. so i am buying tires about every 10 months. My dodge had well over 300k miles on it and it was an 06. I have had my f250 since august and now have 30k on it. Im getting to the point of needing tires so i am interested in the fuel muds.However if they are basically toyos then i dont think the milage will be there for me.

I only want to run 35s this time on the ford so I am looking for opinions on leveling kits and a tire wheel package.

I have seen the Carli 2.0 leveling kit. will i be able to run the 35s with that kit? Also are there other kits that perform well but cost a little less? I do mostly street driving with a lot of towing.

You can run 35" tires on stock 08+ trucks. Very minor radius arm rubbing at full lock if they are on the stock rims. Get 9" wide wheel with between a +25 and +15 offset, and they will not rub anything.

Yes, 35" tires will fit great on our leveling systems. Beware of the cheaper systems, you really do get what you pay for in the suspension world. You're going to want an adjustable track bar, caster shims, new shock, brake line relocation and replacement coils regardless of the kit you go with. You'll find, comparably equipped of course, that our kit it very competitive.

Thanks and good luck!
