35x12.5 on stock wheels question

I have a 2006 lariat cc sd 4x4. I am installing a 4.5" lift and need new tires to go with it. I cant afford new wheels right now so...... Looking at the trail grapplers .... Will the 35x12.5x18 fit on the factory wheels? Or would I be better off going with the 295/70/18? I dont know the rim width on the factory wheels, thats why I ask. thanks for the help.

They will fit, but you don't need a 4.5 lift to fit them. IMO, 35's are way too small for that lift. Some people are running 37's with just a leveling kit.

Thanks sickstroke, I wasnt really worried about clearance. I mainly wanted to get the best performance for that size wheel. I read somewhere that if the wheel wasnt the proper width it could make for a bad ride or cause steering issues. Never had a lift kit or tires that big, so its all new to me.

There are multiple users on this site running the same exact combo as you, with great success. If the tires ever start wandering on the road just upgrade to a dual steering stabilizer kit. Those can be necessary for any tire, 35" and above.

Oh and P.S. Next time, post this in the "Wheel and Tire" or the "6.0l Exterior Discussion" Sections of the Forum and you will have more responses, opinions, comments, and sometimes even pictures

Haha my bad I just happened to see you on the Active Topics page.

And there are some really nice kits on eBay, surprisingly. And they aren't too expensive either.

I have a 2.5 inch leveling kit (just the coil pucks) on right now that I've been running for 150k miles. But soon I'm going with a 3.5 inch Icon setp.
