2.5" lift in front

Ok so I'm looking at lifting the front end of my dodge with a 2.5" lift. All new leafs. Would I possibly be able to run 35x13s with it or would I need more of a lift. Don't want to lift it any higher because the truck will still be used to haul gooseneck trailers on the farm and when I have to haul other trucks.

I cleared 315s (34.6) at stock height. Only rubbed when turning sharp and hit a bump. Wheels will also play apart on if they rub... mine were on steel wagon wheels

when i got my my 1/2 ton, it had approx a 2in lift in the front and only cleared 35s with some trimming

Generally if you want 35s, a 4in is the way to go, unless you dont mind trimming

I trimmed my flares because the tires ripped them off but I had rubbing. Now I have 4" and 36s with no rubbing at all.

Well the reason I was asking was because I wanted to still be able to pull our gooseneck flat bed and stock trailer. I guess I'm just gonna stick with getting some 33s. I wouldn't mind the 4" lift at all except I don't think I'll be able to pull the trailer.
