Tire and Lift Help Please!

I'm doing 20x12 wheels on my 2005 F250. It's stock height now. I do have a 2" level kit for the front. Question is what are good tire options for all year round. I'm in upstate NY. and Also, will 35's on 20's fit stock height on my F250 or do I need a lift or at least the 2" level kit? Thanks for any suggestions!

Those 20x12 will stick out quite a bit. I'd say you need more lift since they are so wide.

Sorry, there 20x9. I don't know why I put 20x12. Will that be good with a 2" level kit in the front?

That sounds much better. OEM wheels run 8" wide. You should be good. I'd look at Toyo AT II's for a great on/off road tire.

If you don't intend on lifting it, a 305/50-20 (I think it's a 50) is all that is going to fit. Even on a 10" wheel you are pushing it with just a leveling kit.

I do plan on lifting it just not right away. Wanted to get wheels and tires since my stock ones are shot.

Those are decent tires in the snow/slush? We just got hammered with 16" of snow and my stock tires are beat.

Those 305/50/20's are pretty much equal to a 33x12 tire if im not mistaken.

Correct.

PERSONALLY, I wouldn't run a 12 inch wide tire on anything less than a 10 inch wheel.

I running 15.50 on 18X9 wheels and they are flat as glass across the width.
12's are a cake walk.
