Default Leveling kit will fit 35's?

I just ordered a 2013 ford f150 and I took my 35's off my jeep. I got to thinkin how can I get those tires on that truck. I just wanted to level the truck and I was wondering if I needed a 2" or a 2 1/2 inch. My tires are 325/65/18 which make them 34.6 and around 13 inches wide. What offset wheel would I be able to run. I want the tires to stick out maybe a inch but not to much more than that. Thanks for the help!

I have 275/65/20= 34.1" and I have 3" leveling kit and a rear 2.5" Block, I have 8.5" stock rim and I have a lots of room, so you should be ok with a 2.5" 325 and 9" rim. lots of guys seem to be doing 35" on 2.5" leveling lift

Im going to either 325/20" or 35"x12.5/18" as I need a wider tire for mine to fill the wheel well it looks puney the way it is on mine.....

here is a few pics....how mine looks with the 34.1" and 3" Leveling kit

You're going to rub unless you run a rim with alot of offset. The width will be your issue. The level, whether 2 or 2.5 inch, will fit up to 35s.

I would recommend the 2" level, less stress on your suspension.

A 18x8.5 wheel with 5.25 to 5.5 inches of BS may work. This will stick out about 1" to 1 1/4"....may be tight with the close to 13" wide tires.
