I've got some 1 1/2" wheel adapters on the way and I'm sure ill have to trim some plastic when I put those on which I can deal with. It's not a daily driver more like a glorified hunting truck during duck season so im not concerned about the stress on the suspension and bearings. Just a little FYI if your thinking about that size.
Did you put a level on it? 4x4?

If you mean width of the tire then anything in the 11-12.5 range will be good. I think you may have an issue running the 10 wide wheel though.

If you read the first post in this thread it will tell you the recommended width is 9. Not saying you can't run these wheels just saying you may rub on components other than plastic.

Hey guys I've read through all the posts on this sticky. Right now I have a 2008 supercrew lariat 4x4 with 2.5" level on front and 3" blocks in the rear. I wanna keep the stock chrome 18" rims. Can I run a 35x12.5r18 toyo open country MT without many problems? Thanks

A while ago someone passed along this link to me: http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecal...r-snt-emty-str
It's been extremely helpful to me. I just looked up the size you're looking into and it shows an over all diameter of 34.8". I'm running 305/70/17's on my 07 w/ 2.5" level with no rubbing at all. Mine come out to 33.8" so yours will be an inch bigger however your width shows only 11" where I'm at 12" so you'll likely be ok. Again check that link out and compare sizes. It was so helpful for me when I was shopping for tires.

Here's some pics. The first two I know are hard to see. Sorry I don't see my truck in daylight often and as you can see in the last one, we've had a lot of salt on the roads here lately lol. Hope this helps!
