Time for new tires, but what to get?

I have an 07 f-250 6.0L. I bought it with nitto grappler 35x12.5r17. I want to go bigger. How do I know what I can fit without lifting?

That's already a big tire. bigger tires are more rotating mass...they will cost you MPG and cause excessive front end wear....definitely improves the COOL factor though...

Turn your wheels to each side and check your clearance... taller narrow tires are easier to fit than wide talls...just my .02 worth...
I run 255/85r17 on my 06 dually I cant go any bigger because of width concerns.

I think you're gonna have trouble fitting those size tires under that truck without a lift. and do you really think tires that big without a lift will look good?

I'm almost positive I have a 2" suspension... I just want something that fits better. The 35s look small in the wheel wells. Any idea what tire to go with? Want something with some
Good road life but real aggressive tread. Regular tread does not work well for me out at my cabin or at my dads land..
