Will a 13.50 tire work?

My Icon 2.5in leveling kit is going on this week. Will a 35x13.50x20 work? Or do i need to stick with the 12.50?

if you are running the factory 20s you are going to get alot of different opinions on this...........all I can say is your factory rim is 8 inch wide and a 13.50 tires call for a minimum width of 9 I think.......

if you are running the tire on a rim that is too narrow......it will wear faster

I'm definitely staying with the stock wheel. I'm was getting mixed feedback at the local tire stores.

Any other thoughts?

I'm not a big fan of 37's under a leveling kit.

I think it looks too "stuffed."

13.5's are too wide, even 12.50 are pushing it but acceptable. 37's on a 2.5 leveling kit looks a bit odd.

I have 13.5's on stock wheels under mine with a leveling kit. They don't "balloon" as much as you would think. Mine are 37's though. Pic is in my sig.
