NEW TIRES--STOCK HEIGHT--35" 12.5 R20 TOYO MT

Hey there fellas!

Just got some new shoes for the black beauty to go along with the new house in the background! Thought I'd share some pics.

My original plan was to run 37" 12.5 R20 Nitto Trail Grapplers with the Icon Stage 2 kit, but I couldn't afford the $4K cost after buying my house. I'm still really happy with my purchase.

Just so you know, no rubbing issues, STOCK HEIGHT, STOCK SUSUPENSION, STOCK EVERYTHING. No death wobble either. (Death wobble was a big concern for me).

Purchases for the near future: Dual steering stablizer, Icon Adjustable track bar, Bilstein 5100 or Icon Monotube shock replacing factory (all 4), and progressive coils (if I plan to stay with 35's).

If I get tired of the stock height by the time my 35's run out, I'm moving back to my original plan--hopefully I will be able to afford it by then. Enjoy!

Oh and BTW, Tires cost me $1478.24 before taxes (this included mounting, balancing, aligning, and warranty), and $1603.21 after taxes.

Truck is a 2010 F250 CC SB FX4 Lariat. I took the FX4 stickers off when i bought her. Tuned since $25K miles, currently about 35K miles on her. Feel free to ask any questions!

Sh@t man u sure did!!! Couldn't afford it and couldn't wait long enough with those stock crap tires. Not as nice as yours but it will do for now. Gotta put a roof over my head before I get everything I want for the truck. Thanks for the comment brother.

Congrats on the new pad, but I hate to be the bearer of bad news...

Those are stock Ford 20x8 wheels, right?



(Cue the broken record...)

You do NOT put 12.5 tires on a stock (8 inch wide) wheel. They are NOT the proper size, period. It doesn't matter how many people do it, that doesn't mean they're the right fit...sorry.

Just about every tire manufacturer has a "recommended rim/wheel width" specification on their website, and I couldn't fit a single one that recommended a 12.5 inch tire for an 8 inch rim.

Here's Toyo's spec sheet on those tires:

OPEN COUNTRY M/T| Mud-Terrain Tire for Pickups and SUVs | Toyo Tires

The MINIMUM recommended width is 8.5 inches, 10 inch ideal, 11 inch maximum.

Why does it matter? You may get it to "fit" (as obviously a whole lot of people have) and it may look right, but you don't need to be a tire engineer to figure out you're putting a whole lot of sidewall stress on the tire by fitting it on a wheel that's too narrow. And if you tow you could be asking for all sorts of trouble.

Personally, that's definitely trouble I don't want or need, and although it seems a whole lot of tire shops don't seem to mind that they're fitting the wrong size tire on a rim they sure would care if there was a catastrophic malfunction/failure followed by a wreck...or worse...

That's when the "I read it was OK to do it on the internet" excuse would fall real short in a court, etc.

I've seen this happen time and time again and it kills me that someone drops that kind of coin (close to $1500) and someone at Tire Rack, Discount Tire, etc., didn't take the time to make sure they were the proper fit for the application to begin with.

Sorry...

'10 F250 CC/SB FX4 530 HP/1047 Torque (Gearhead Street Tune), lowered/LEVELED, aFe Stage II Si intake, Spartan CAC pipe, powerstroker67 DPF-delete & ceramic coated downpipe, MBRP Cool Duals, AMSOIL oil bypass, DieselSite coolant bypass, PowerStroke Connection CCV kit, Fumoto oil drain valve, PAC Navigation Unlock Interface, Edge CTS, Boston Acoustic SE85s (front & rear), Kicker Solo-Baric L5 12-inch sub with Kenwood KAC-9105C amp, Retro-Solutions 55W Digital 6K HID Headlights & 3K Fog Lights
