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.
