Nice ride. So the +44 will tuck further under the finders?

Yes it would as that is essentially the stock offset. However, larger than stock tires with that offset increases your chances of rubbing.

On a leveled F150, I have only run 305/55R20 (approximately 33x12) and even that needed some trimming of plastics. All on aftermarket wheels, but I'm not sure what the offset was. Currently have a 6" lift with 35's and toying with the idea of 37's, so I'm in the same boat.

OK here is another question. I am CONSIDERING installing a 6" Rough County lift. I am only doing it for cosmetics. I am concerned about premature wearing of any mechanical parts. Do I need to be concerned about that?

I don't have personal experience with Rough Country lift, but I have only read negative things about it. One of those - you get what you pay for- situations. I have a BDS 6" lift and love it. But just do plenty of research beforehand because the negatives I have read aren't about ride quality, but more along the lines of build quality, reliability, and stressing factory suspension geometry which other lifts (more expensive) will correct. I'm also sure there are plenty of people out there that are happy with their RC kits also, I would just rather spend a little more to have full confidence in a system.

I am running the tire size that you are after. My details in my sig if you want to look. You will see my trimming in the front as well.

Also remember just because they don’t rub sitting on the road doesn’t mean they won’t rub offroad. I almost tore my inner fender out on the first vditch I went through. Had to trim that out as well. No big deal fixed it immediately on trail with a razor knife.

If you are doing this for cosmetic looks you really should get new rims, look so much better than stock.

Obviously I don't know anything about lifts. What separates say the Rough County lift from the BDS lift. Just trying to learn.

Iv decided to install a RC 6" lift. Now I'm in the process of deciding on a wheel with an Offset that will work without sticking out. I am looking at an 18 X 9 with a +25 Offset. I will be running 35 X12.50. Will that work on my truck?

OK here we go. So I installed a 6" RC lift. A week after I had the truck lifted I left the house one morning and heard what sounder like a roaring noise that increased as the speed of the truck increased. I stopped on the side of the road for about 10 seconds and pulled out. Not sure what it was but the roaring stopped. Last night I was out Coyote hunting and the noise started again. The difference is the noise never quite this time unless the truck was setting still. After getting on youtube and looking around I see that lots of people are having the same issue where the IWE valve was bad or a hole was in the vacuum line. I checked the vacuum lines and everything so far is checking out fine. There is one thing that will stop the noise from happing and that is when I lock the truck in 4x4. Any suggestions?

Firs I want to say thanks to all those that helped me build my truck. I'm running a 6: lift with 35 x 12.50 x 20. with a +18 rim. Love it! I have another dilemma that I'm sure you guys can help me with. My speedometer and MTE gauge is off which was expected due to the larger tires. My shift points also needs some adjustment. I have plans to install a few Mods to help the performance such as K&N filter system and a new Intercooler.

I guess I'm wanting to not just look good but also boost the power. I can handle most all the upgrades BESIDES the selection of a good power booster upgrade which they say will also adjust shift timing etc. such as the Hypertech 2000 energy booster. I would love to hear from all you guys as to what I need to be careful with and also if the Hypertech is a good decision. I don't want to hurt the truck permanently by adding stuff that the overall truck cant handle. I really appreciate you guys!!!
