Stock suspension tire size

I have a '12 F-250 with the stock 20's. what's the best tire I can put on my truck using stock suspension and stock rims? I want to go with a nitto trail grappler or toyo. What's the best size to go with? I would love to see pics. Thanks.

the sizes i am trying to decide between are 295/60/20, 295/65/20, or 35X12.50 R 20. i am trying to decide what would look the best and be the best for stock rims and suspension with no rubbing. i am trying to get these tires on order. any advice or pics would be helpful.

35x12.50x20 on stock rims shouldn't rub. I've got 35x12.50x18 on stock King Ranch wheels and it doesn't rub and looks awesome with that extra width.

thanks for the reply. i like the looks of the 35X12.50 but have seen several people say that it may not be the best choice for the stock rims for wear and all. anyone running the 295/60 or 295/65? the 296/65 is taller diamater than the 35X12.50 but not as wide. will this tire work with no lift on stock rims??

The 295/65 is .43 inches taller than a 35x12.50 in the Nitto Trail Grappler and is 1.26 inches narrower. It should fit just fine since you're talking less than a quarter inch taller into the fender wells since that .43 difference is split and it won't rub at lock at all since it's so much narrower.

FWIW I am running the Trail Grapplers now and like them a lot but you can't go wrong with the Toyo Open Country M/T either from what I hear. There is a reason most of the trucks on the forums with bigger tires are running one of these two tires.
