    I have put 35's on a 350 with just the front leveling kits. They were 1-2" of lift. If that is what the "X" springs give you you should be able to run 35's. Like Manx said, you may want to get larger wheels.

    I have X-springs and a 3" leveling kit (shackle reverseal), I run 295/75/16's (34X12.50X16). I could run bigger, but I wanted to keep enough room so that when I have the plow mounted with the wheels turned that I would still have plenty of wheel travel. If I were you I wouldn't run any tires that are 11" or wider unless you run lots of ballest. Like me for I run tires that are 12.5" wide, but I also have about 6,000-6,500 lbs in the back of the truck when loaded.
