Ok guys getting a set of tires very soon. I was wondering what width should I get? I'm also looking at getting aftermarket wheels 9'' wide but the offset and stuff will be right like the factory wheels. So would get the 35 12.5 or 35 13.5 ? Also this is stock height F250 but will probably putting on a 2''-4.5'' lift within the next year...

So the offset is in the right position for no tire rub.

You will probably rub if you have them in the stock location. Usually they will have a negative offset 18-25 to help position the tire to prevent rubbing.

That said, 35x12.5's are pretty damn wide. You can see what they look like on my rig,

35x12.50 20's will rub on a stock F250 on factory wheels....if you level it they will be fine...no rub.....need to level 2.5 in front and use a 4" f350 blocks in the back

Test fit 37's on my 250 with no leveling kit. I have the camper package so it sit's only about 1/2" low in front. Will need at least 1" more in front to keep contact from the top of the wheelwell, in addition there is another thread on here where somebody used a piece of all thread attached to his steps to pull the inner fender back to stop it rubbing. Lastly it will barely touch the radius arms with stock rims. I am debating whether it is worth it now, but they will fit and are driveable. Just have to deal with a little rubbing on the radius arms.

I run 33's on mine with 10" wide wheels. They rubbed the back felt liner until I cut a couple inches off it. No rub now. They stick out pretty far but look bad arse.

12.5 is plenty. I would put a leveling kit on it before you put 35's on though. yes it will be streetable with 35x12.5's and no leveling kit, but pulling into some parking lots and driveways you may rub harder than you would like to.
