Default Leveling Kit and Tire Help

I have a 2011 F150 XLT 4x4 and I'm wanting to level it out and get some tires, but I'll likely keep the stock wheels because I like the looks of them. I believe the leveling kit that I'm looking at is a 2.5", but it may be 2". Anyways, what size tires could I fit on those respective lifts? I looked at some 295/70r18's, but I'm not sure if that's the size that would look best. I want some width added (right now I have the stock 275/70r18's), but not so much that I get the wheel spacer looking squatty stance if you know what I mean.

Not sure who's truck this is, I found it on here a few days ago and can't find it now. But I like the width of those tires.

I just got done with mine, 2012 f150 fx4. Thanks to Dave on here I went with his setup. 2 1/2" / 3" Leveling kit on 35x12.5x20 tires. Minimal trimming required. I love the way it turned out.

That's a pretty cool look with the blue color and the hockey stick decal! The red accents work as well. Nicely done.
