i came across the nitto trail grappler mt tire and they dont make a size thats very close to the stock tires that came on my 20" rims. i really want these tires! i am curious as to how big you guys are goin on tire sizes before they start rubbing on any other parts of the truck. the sizes they have are: 35x12.50r20 37x12.50r20 lt295/55r20 305/55r20
any info would be great
Through a huge long comedy of errors I have had three sets of aftermarket tires on my truck in the 8000 miles I have owned it. LoL All of them on the stock 20" rims.
Toyo MT 35x12.5x20, rubbed a little on the control arms. Got rid of these at no cost to me due to them putting on tires that could not handle my camper. Floatation tires in an E are only rated to 3195 per tire. Les Schwaab ate that one.
Nitto Trail Grappler, 295/60R20. These looked awesome and were quieter than the Toyo. The issue here is I had one that was out of round so it pulled to the left. On top of that after two trips with the camper the wide lug spacing showed that it could not deal with the weight of a camper and the torque of the diesel. The lugs showed signs of ripping at the base. Back they went at Nitto's expense.
BFG A/T LT285/65R20 (34.7" tall). These do not rub as they are narrower. Best ride, very quiet and considerably more stable with the camper on. Hopefully this is the last set for a while.
Just out of curiosity, what do you guys do about speedometer recalibration after going to larger tires/wheels? I'm considering going from the OEM 18" rims/tires on mine to a 20" rim with a larger tire, and wondering if there's a way to fix the speedometer/odometer calibration.
The dealer can recalibrate your truck up to the stock 34.1" tire that comes with the 20" wheels. If you want to go beyond that and keep your speedo accurate you need to look at aftermarket solutions - I have a tuner which is capable of changing tire size.
