Default 35" on cummins 4X4 Mega cab

About to put a new set of tires on my 2500 mega cab 4X4 (Cummins).
The initial tires were 285 X 60 X 20. About 33.5" according to literature.
Was looking to replace them with Toyo Open Country AT II (295 X65 X 20) which is a 35" tire.
Curious if these will work on the front end without a leveling kit? If one is required, how much lift would I need?

On a 2500, I think you've already got more than enough clearance for 35s.

Yes 295/65/20's will fit on stock wheels without a leveling kit no problem. If anything, you may have a slight amount of rub on the sway bar at full lock but that would be it.

Yup...they will fit height wise.

Careful of going to full steering lock as it might rub. You can test this but do it at very low speed until you are sure.

if you added leveling, would that pretty much remove the possibility for rubbing?

Top to bottom rubbing won't be an issue.

Rubbing on the side might be at full steering lock due to the combination of stock wheel offset and the wider tire regardless of whether you level it or not.

You could use a spacer but what I'd do is try a test fit and see what happens.
