Some advice needed

I recently traded my 05 6.0 in on a 2010 6.4 My 6.0 had 4 inches of lift with 20x10 mazzi hulks on 35 13.50 cooper stt's.

I was wonderin if anyone knows or has tried to put wheels and tires of that size on a truck with just a leveling kit. The wheels have -25mm of offset.

Im worried that the offset is to much for just a leveling kit. Would these be too wide and stick out to far for a truck with only a leveling kit? Or would it work and look ok? If anyone has a similar setup please chime in. Pics would be great. I already have the wheels and leveling kit but i would like to know if this is a good idea before i try it. Thanks in advance for the help!

That makes me feel ok about them bein 35's and fitting as far as the tire height goes. But what im really worried about is the offset of the wheel. I dont want them to stick so far past the side of the truck that they dont look good. And they may rub becasue of the offset too. So im hopin somebody has tried it and can help me out.

These trucks can run 35s with a stock set up, the stock tires are 34.5 so your measured height is around the same there just wider.

you guys he is worried about the offset not the height..

I for one can't help you, offset confuses the heck outta me. I'd suggest just putting them on the stock truck and seeing what they look like then going from there. a 2.5" leveling kit isn't much difference from stock.

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

Thats probably about what mine would stick out. I would really like to see some close up pics of your truck if you dont mind posting some. And if you know the backspacing and offset of your wheels i would really like to know that as well. Thanks for the help!

If your old truck was a 05 then your old lift should fit, you will just need new blocks for the rear. The spring rate may be different but it cant be by much.
