best tires for carli pintop 2.5"

I have a 2012 f-250. i am wanting to install the carli pintop 2.5" leveling kit once my factory tires wear. what would be my best tire option for this kit? i want to run factory 20" rims. i like the toyo open county m/t. looks like the LT315/60R20 is a 35" tire. would this be a good choice for factory rims? if anyone has pictures of this set up i would love to see them. thanks

We recommend the Toyo 35" 12.5" r20 Open Country Mud Terrains with a 40psi front and 35psi rear. Overall, they will not give you as good of a ride as a 17" wheel but that will be the best you'll get out of a 20" wheel!

I've got 315/60/20 toyo M/T's on factory KR 20's with no leveling kit or trimming. The 315's have a higher load carrying capacity compared to the 35/12.50's and were only $20 more per tire.

I agree... Have been running this set up for a few thousand miles. The Open Country M/T's are beef mode!

Would you mind posting a few photos of your tires? Interested in this size for my next set of Toyos.

Many Thanks-

It sure will! What's more irritating, your $50K truck riding like a covered wagon or a dash light?

Since you have and H&S tuner you can just use this to shut off that annoying TPMS system:
