35x12.50r20

Well I have a few questions:

Anyone running the Toyo open country M/T's and how well does the tire wear on a stock size 20" wheel?

Anyone having issues running that wide of a tire on a stock wheel?

Tire noise?

Heavy loads?

Rubbing issues?

And if I happen to get a flat, will the spare work.

noisy.
they will fit on the stock 8" rim but you will notice more tire "roll" than stock.

wear characteristics are fine.

towing is no problem-they are strong tire.

spare will work but it will look funny-that is all.

if you have the 6000lb front springs, rubbing will be minimal. with a 2" leveling kit there is more than enough room.

I am running them on 20x9 BMF rehabs, tires are a bit noisy, but these trucks have a quiet cab, so it's not so bad. However they're heavy as heck and will kill your fuel mileage by 2-3 mpg.

The tires will, they tires out weigh the stock 275/65R20s by 25 lbs per piece. The 20x9 BMF wheels outweigh the Stock 20x8 Ford wheels by about 10 lbs. So all in all, I gained 140 lbs of rotating mass, plus about 8 inches of tire width equates into more rolling reistance.

Why would you even think about 35x12.5 when LT295/65R20 (35.4x12) is available to you? An 80 PSI tire with 129 load rating (over 4K lbs per tire). And it is approved from the manufacturer for a 8" wide wheel (you have an 8" wide wheel)

LT295/60R20 Is also offered by Toyo (34.2x12)

I ordered 295/65R20 Toyo AT IIs from discount tire, waited 10 days and they finally shoed, 2 of em, they forgot to order the other two, I had been waiting so long I didn't want to wait another 10 days for the other 2, so I went with 35x12.5 toyo MTs.

I have the 315/60R20's which equal out to a 35x12.5R20. They have a bit higher load rating than the 35's. I have no tire roll at all. I keep them aired up to 60psi. They are a bit noisy with the windows down but then again, all MT tires will have some noise. They ride smoothly for a mud tire and look great. No problems with the 8" rims. I do have a 3.5" lift now but I did put the tires on the truck before the lift. They were close but they fit. (I have the heavier springs). I tow a 13K fiver and have had no issues there either. To me they were worth every dime.

I would have waited. Such a better tire size IMO.
