there will be a little of rubbing. i am running 35x 12.50's on my 250 without any lift and i had to pull the inner fender in with some wire but other than that there isn't any rubbing unless you compress the suspension a good bit.

What he said... I have an '08 on factory 20's with toyo 35/12.50 M/T's. They actually run wide (13") and all I had to do was pull back the driver's side fender well at the bottom corner, as that's the only place it would rub on mine. You could cut or trim it as well, but I'm not too keen on cutting parts off of my truck. Anyhow, I've done much more suspension compression than necessary and haven't run into any issues as of yet. Good luck though, definitely a worthwhile mod. Gives the truck a badass stance without looking overdone imo.

judging by your pic you have 18" rims. well the toyo mt that is 285/75R18 is actually 34.8"x12.3" i ran them on my truck stock before the lift kit. little fender trimming but they rubbed a little bit when turned all way to lock.

They also make a standard 35x12.5R18. U font have to get the metric version. But I'm not sure what load range they are.

I wonder why you guys dont have much rub if any at all. I have a 2.5 leveling kit that really lifted it about 3 inches and my 35s hit the spings. Im guessing its cause of the stock rims and I need an offset rim

I've got an '08 with stock 18" wheels, and installed the Toyo MT 35X12.5 on them...

I did use zip ties to pull back the inner fender, but It's debatable whether that was even necessary. When the truck is level there would be no rubbing without the fenders pulled back. Better safe than sorry in my opinion though.

Bottom line you won't have any problems with this setup, and you'll love the tires. They perform great, and look great as well! I guess i'm biased though
