Default 2012 2wd 1500 level kit and 35" tires??

I currently have a 2" pro comp polyurithane level kit, but I wasnt to impressed with the results. I just ordered the CST Level kit and they claim its a true 3" level kit ( even though the recipt says 2.5") Could someone possibly tell me if they are able to fit 35x12.50R20 on a 2wd with a 3' level kit? Thanks

I have a 2" Truxxx kit on my Express 2wd and was able to fit 295/60/20's on stock alloys, no spacers, they measure almost 35",(34.45 D x 12.13 W), no rubbing, no issues. You may need different wheels with 0 offset or negative offset in order to keep from rubbing. It's the width thats the problem. Find a shop that allows test fitment on the front before you buy if you can.

I'm running 35x11.50r18 nitto terra grapplers, the cst kit is a whole new front end bracket so it will push the tires out a bit and requires wheels with no more than 5" of back spacing...keep that in mind.
