Tire Size help

What is the biggest tire size with leveling kit can I install on my 08 F250 Larriat?
I really like the look of 37's but I am being told that 35 is the largest I can go with a leveling kit.

On the stock wheels? There are some guys on here rocking 37's on aftermarket wheels with just a leveling kit. Granted they are not doing any serious offroading.

37''s will work if you don't mind a little rub on turns

I couldn't tell you exactly. I know that those are a considerable amount bigger then stock so turning you may get some rub.

You will rub near full lock with 37x12.5 on the stock 8" wide +40 offset wheels.

If you buy the right wheels you will only rub slightly at full lock on the radius arm, and clear your fenders completley. I would suggest a 9" wide wheel with an offset between +20 and +15. If you go with something bigger then +25 you will rub the radius arm. If you go with an offset smaller then +10, you run the risk of tearing up your fenders.
