20" tire options

Hello Fellow Strokers!
I've got an 07 cc/sb F250 lariat with the factory 20" wheels. What are guys replacing the 275/65 Goodyear AT/S with?? I would like a little bigger meatier tire but I don't really know what to get. The specs on the factory tires are 34.1 tall and 11 wide. I was thinking a 35x12.50 would probably work nicely. Any thoughts??

If you try to go with a 35 you will need a small lift.

why? the factory tires are 34.1" tall and there is tons of clearance everywhere.

I like them. I can't commment on the wear since they've only been on there for about 5K miles. But they look great and are pretty quiet for a mud tire. That picture is deceiving BTW. Even with the 2" coil spacers, the back end is still about 2" taller than the front.

The stock tires are comparatively narrower than the aftermarket 35" tires for 20" rims. The rub is when turning and gets closer to the fender liner at the rear of the tire and the lower valance at the front of the tire since the edge of the tire is further away from the steering axis.

I just found out that BFG makes the All-Terrains in a 285/65/20 load range E! That should be a perfect replacement for the goodyears! Does anyone have these in this size?

2 Questions, Do you have a side pic with more light, and what wheels are you running (offset and width as well)?

Looks very nice!

They are 20x9. Sorry, don't know the offset.
