35x12.50 Tires

I have a 06 f350 with 325/65/18 terra grapplers with a Rough Country Leveling kit. I Installed my leveling kit so my tires would not scrub with my aftermarket wheels. I am within 5k miles of needing new tires problem I am only finding few tires in 325/65/18s. I have heard the 35x12.50 are the same size I would be willing to buy the 35s due to more of a selection except the guy who installed my level kit said that would not be a good idea I would back in the same position with the scrubbing as before. Can somebody please explain the size difference to me and if I would be able to run 35x12.50s with no scrub?

What are the dimensions of your wheels? 18x9 or 18x10? What's the backspace and also the offset? Yes, the 325's and the 35x12.5's are basically the exact same size. The only reason I can see you would be rubbing is if you have a wide baskspaced and offset wheel.


Do the 325x65x18's rub?

Yes they are 18x9s I'm not sure exactly what the offset and backspace is. I was running the 325s with the stock wheels and did not rub until I got new wheels, but then I put the leveling kit on and they don't rub unless I have the steering cranked all the way to the right or left. That's what I always thought with them being the same size, with that being said I should be fine with running the 35s with my setup with a little rub when locked to the right or left?

Yea you should be fine. Just keep in mind a 12.5 mt is goin to be a bit wider than a 12.5 at. With an mt you could end up with a slight rub on the fender liners but that is a very easy fix. :thumbup:
