?? 35's On Stock 97 F350 ??

The question is, does anyone run 35s on a stock F350? My truck needs new shoes for winter and I would like to step up from 33 to 35. Intend to add lift in the near future but near future but don't have time yet. I know I ran 33's on my F150 and Bronco stock and I have a lot more room on this F350.
Thank you in advance

I run 35s on my stock height f-350, but my truck is 4x4. What about yours?

Same here. The only issue I ever had running 33' on my F150 & Broncos were the front bumper, but that is a none issue on my F350.

I took that into account when I built the front bumper.

35's will fit rite on there. they may rub on the springs at full lock turns, but it will not be much.

37's

I run hummer tires on mine. They say 37 inch on the side but are probably 36 or so. Moved my bumper out a out 2 inches is all. I love the hummer tires! They're tough, cheap, and not noisy on the highway. Read alot before I bought them and it seems about 50/50 of people who love/hate them. I'll never buy anything else.

I can sneak 35's under it without the wife getting suspicious, 37's in am pretty sure she would catch. She already complains about getting up in the truck as it Is.

Here's the deal

The bonus with using the hummer tires is that you can find them from 70$ to 100$ apiece depending on the tread and where you buy....so they're usually a third of the price a similar tire. So "honey, I got these real cheap and saved us money" is in play.

I've looked at the Hummer tires before, aren't they usually 16.5's? I found a deal on a set of litely used Mud Claw Radial M/T's, but don't know if I like the looks of them.
