Default Tire Size

I have a question, I have been running 33/12.50/20 on my 2009 F150 4wd

I have a leveling kit, I am wondering if 35s will fit with no rub or not so much.

I don't have the factory bumper That usually causes the rub.

This is my truck.

Thanks guys

What are the specs on your 20's and the Offset?


What leveling kit do you have?


You should be fine fitting 35's.

They'll likely fit with minimal rubbing- side lugs on UCA at full lock. The problem will arise when you go off road. There just isn't enough room between the tire and well. It's going to feel like the tire is in the cab every time you hit a hole. How do I know this you may ask. I put 35x12.50 on a 2" level. It wasn't bad driving around the city and it looked damn good. The problem was discovered as soon as I hit my lease. Left the lease on Sunday and went to the 4x4 shop on Monday to order a 4" suspension lift. Off road with the lift is sweet.

Short answer-- will work fine for a mall crawler but obviously your truck isn't.

35x12.50's will fit if you don't have much offset, I've done it plenty of times with a 2" level.

A 9" wide rim with +12 offset is taking it to the max. It will hit the inner fender structure in the back of the front wheel well when turning and/or hitting a bump. But that can be cut away, it's behind the inner fender splash shield.

Check the tire and wheel fitment guide in the 09-14 forum.

if you want articulation just stick with 33s. Going to 35s will cause rubs in higher off camber situations.
