I went to Belle Tire today to test out 35s on the rebel and it is possible but I wasn't sure about it yet. Someone came up to me and said they put a spacer on a air suspension on the front. Investigated more and they said they could custom make a strut spacer for the air bag up front to level it and adjust the sensors accordingly. I'm a little skeptical about it and was wondering if anyone knew if this would work? If so how big of a spacer would level it out? I said 2.5" inches but I could be wrong.

I hope someone can answer this cause if this is possible I would definitely look into going this route.

So I believe it's 1.5" to level it(correct me if I'm wrong" so I might put a one inch spacer on the back and 2.5 in the front so I get a level and an inch lift. Should be fine to fit 35s.

just skip to 5:00 mark. i think the daystar kit will work. you get extend a studs that go on those factory studs. but, you're going to have to take the nitrogen line off and reinstall.

The links don't give you enough lift to put 35s on without affecting the ride quality. Not the biggest fan
Have you had experience with them? I've been wanting to get them so I could fit a 12 inch wide rim on 33's. I emailed the guy he said I could fit 37's but they'd be tucked and the rim would have to be little to no offset.

Why do you want 12 inch wheels??
Lol I'd go with a 14 or 16 wide if I could on a bigger tire. Just personally a fan of trucks with negative offset. I also like a nice clean small beadlock on a big tire though. Truck is 2wd and closest place to off-road is 3 hours away. Might as well make it a pavement princess I can enjoy rather than have a poser pre runner that sees dirt twice a year like every other truck out here.

Got an update on the level kit. The guy built this custom spacer to go on top of the strut along with custom brackets to reposition to sensors to accumulate the lift. It will be raising the front 2". Will post pictures by next week

Either 33x12.5, 305/55, or 355/40 which is a 33x14.5 I believe.
355 is a 14" wide tire, yes. but the /40 profile has to be added to the wheel diameter. A 355/40 on a 17" wheel is only 28" tall. A 20" wheel makes it 31" tall. 22" wheel makes it 33".
