Talking looking to put bigger tires and rims on my 2005 f150 need help?

I am looking to put bigger tires on my stock 05 f150 supercab xl

Is the leveling kit the way to go or should i be looking into a lift thanks alot

Welcome to the site! Really, it's all up to you and how big you want to go. First of all, do you have a 4x2 or 4x4? If you have a 4x4, I think the best looking combo with a 2.5 inch leveling kit is a 325/60-18 (33x13.00) tire on an 18x9 inch wheel with 5.5 inches of backspacing. There are a lot of variables when it comes to fitment, but as a general rule on the new 4x4's, you can fit 33's with a leveling kit and aftermarket wheels or 35's with a leveling kit and the OEM wheels.
