My 35x12.5 20's mud grapplers would rub a bit with the 3" kit. So I would say no on the 13.5 width. But I now have 325/65 18's bFG A/T KO and they just barely squeeze by with no rubbing. I think a less aggressive 35 would work also.

I have 33's with 13.5 inch width and they rub when turning... Unfortunately, that's just too wide even with a good bit of offset (like mine).

35 12.5 with the right back space on the wheel will fit most shops will test mount some for you to get the right wheel and the good shops already know what wheel it will take 13.5 will rub no matter what wheel you use

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry

It's the bumps at almost full turn when mine would rub. Pulling into parking lots mostly. Going down the road and sitting there were not any problems.
