Default Tire size???

Ok, I put a 3 inch leveling kit on my 2013 f150 crew cab. I am looking to put 33's or 35's on.. what is everyone's opinion???? does anyone have a 13 with a 3 inch leveling kit and 33's or 35's?

Really up to how much you want to spend and what look you're going for. Either will fit, depending on wheel offset you may need to add a 1/4 spacer to accommodate for the 35's. I've seen plenty of people clear a 35" tire with nothing but a 2.5" leveling kit

Check your offset for whatever wheel you plan to use. I could have gotten away with 35's had mine not been a +1 mm offset. So I dropped down to 33's.

I have been leaning more towards the 35's. does offset really matter on rims? I have always concentrated more on back spacing rather than offset. Rims I have in mind have a 5 inch backspace and a +15mm offset.

I think it does but backspacing is important too. Mine have a 5 inch backspace.

Feel free to correct me if Im wrong but the way I understand it is that offset and backspacing are really just 2 different ways to measure the same thing.

Offset- measured from center of wheel out (positive) or in (negative)

Backspacing-measured from the back of the wheel in.

will it fit 35x12 on the stock 18 inch rims with the 2.5inch leveling kit without any issues?
