I'm trying out a set of 285/75/18 (35x11") in a day or two.
I'll be using the factory 18x8" rims.
Hopefully they'll fit.

are you running 18" or 20" rims ?

with the 2" level kit (you do not need new shocks) you can run 35" tires

stock size on the factory 20" is 275-65-20 which is around 34 " tall

im running the factory 20" wheel and had 325-60-20 which is around 35.5 x 13 wide....

Im now runing toyos new mud 315-60-20 which does work better on the factory 8.5" wide rim...the other tires where a little too wide and I burned out the centers in only 32k miles..

With the leveling kit you can run 37 x 13.50 18 with the right rim. Not sure if it will work with the stock ones. In the winter I have 35 x 12.50's 18 I put on my stock rims with studded tires. I only went with a smaller tire because I haul a camper and trailer that may rub my fender flares with the 37's on a good bump due to the weight. Without the flares I would not have worried about it. There was plenty of room.

I am running a stock 20" wheel with Nitto 325-60-20 which is equal to 35"x13.50"x20". I have a ready lift 2" leveling kit and the tires have no rubbing at all, even at full lock and going on alternating terrain. I reccomend this size tire because it will not leave you wanting more. It is the perfect size for the aggresive stance, but not looking like you shoe horned too much rubber under the wheel wells. Good Luck!!

35's looked like they were too small on the truck. I actually had them go back and forth two or three times between the two tire sizes. 35's probably look fine on a truck without aftermarket fender flares but I have 18's instead of 20's as well.

I just put 35x12.5x20's pro comp extreme all terrains on my 08 HD CC 4x4 with facory HD wheels. In spite of what most tires shops told me (Tire Rack, 4wheelparts, NTB), they fit pefectly, no rubbing, and fill the wheel well much better. I too did not want to put a lift on my truck as I had on previous Fords. Forget the leveling kit, you don't need one to run 35's.

The tire you got is most likely a load range D rather than E, therefore the sidewall strength of the tire is less. Also the max PSI should be around 50 cold. Combine those two factors and 37" of ride height and your gonna get a squirmy back end.
