F350 w/ a lift

Just bought an 05 F350 6.0 coming from a duramax LBZ. Anyways sorry to make my first post a ? but I dont know jack about these Fords. All I need to know right now is what size tire I should go with. I have a 4" superlift and 18" wheels. Right now I have 35x12.5s and was wondering if 355/65s would fit or if only 325/65s will fit.

Thanks Greg

With a 4" lift you will probably get some rubbing of the tire on the plastic inner liner at full lock. Also depends on wheel off-set. I've got 325's and get a small amount of rubbing at full lock, but I could probably pull the liner back a little and totally eliminate that.
If it doesn't quite make it, you could always do a mini pack up front for a little extra height. (see donahoe racing/ edge lifts)

'04 F250 FX4, CC, SB, Zoodad, Innovative SCT XCal2, 4" MBRP, Airaid intake, 4" Superlift front with 5.5" Fabtech springs in back with stock 2" block delete, 18" predators with 35" Nitto's, Isspro gauges overhead.

i have 325's on mine and all i did was heat the inner fender and push it back while heating then let it cool all while putting pressure on it. worked great. 20k miles on lift and no rubbing. but it barely rubbed to begin with and now i got 1" +/- clearance now.
