Tires

Hey guys wanting to buys some new tires but not sure how wide the rims are. I am running stock 275/65/r20s right now and would like to go to a 35/12.5/r20 or was thinking like 295/65/r20 but I'm not sure what the right tire spec is. Also I'm not sure if a 12.5 is to wide so and help would be great. Cheers

i have the same truck as you and I've run 35x12.5R20 in both Toyo's and Nittos with no issues. I think the rim is technically a little too narrow for the 12.5" tire, but if you air them down slighty, and rotate them, they wear just fine. A lot of guys run this size tire with the stock rims with no issues. Hope that helps.
