Tires

sorry guys not too sure where to put this thread im a new poster.

I want to put new tires on my 08 6.4

Can i put 35X12.50x18 BFgoodrich Mud Terrians on a 18X8 stock rims? will they fit good enough? i dont feel like putting money out on new rims right now but really want the tires. i do have a leveling kit so the tires size should clear fine, maybe minor rubbing but nothing major.

thanks

MZL when you order your tires have them look up the actual size of the tires. I have a set of Toyo MT's mounted to the stock FX4 chrome steel wheels and they rub when turning left. They just barely touch the radius arm and only at full lock. The Toyo's measure a full 35 inches, most others are just under 35 inches and usually dont rub.
Hope this helps

my buddy has them on one of his crawlers... they do great but i dont think they would last that long on pavement..... you will maybe get 20k miles out of them....

I' m looking at these too but the KM2 35's don't come load E. If don't haul heavy loads 98% of the time should I worry about not having Load E tires? I'm also concerned about rubbing. Is a leveling kit needed? Sorry, not trying to hijack your thread but I've had the same questions. Thanks in advance and HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!

thanks for the replys. the actual size is 34.8.so they shouldnt rub at all im not too concerned about how many miles ill get, i hav always had bfgoodrich all terrians and i would get maybe 20k if im lucky.

for those who added 35/12.50s on there new trucks I think 2008fx4 has that size on his truck. did the tires look alot bigger then the stock ones, did it make the truck look alot better?

thanks alot and happy new year

No one noticed my rims until I put the new 35X12.50X18 tires on. Now everyone notices, before I put the tires on hardly anyone noticed my truck was lifted 4". Now with the tires everyone thinks my truck is huge.
They make a huge difference and I am very pleased with my Toyo MT's

Angry

You talk about tire issues try having 19.5 steer tires on the drive wheels and driving in the winter with very little traction. The factory tires are designed for the summer only not the winter. Hate the tires on rear end!!!!!!!!!!!!!
