35s on Stock 20" rims

So I finally got around to snapping a few pictures of my tires. I wish that I could have gotten a few more angles but of course the camera had no juice left in it and then it got dark. The tires are Toyo Open Country M/T in 35x12.50x20 on stock rims. These tires were a pain to find and the dealer that had them only had 4, so needless to say I had to jump on these bad boys.

I searched High and Low for pictures of 35s on stock rims but came up pretty empty when it came for this style except for a few. Once the weather breaks and I can get some more life in the camera, I will get some more pictures.

All in all I am pretty happy with these tires.

Are they loud? No but you can definitely hear them.
Can you still have a conversation with the person next to you? Yes, no need to shout.

Are your MPGs down? Yes, but I have not really had a fair chance to really compare it to stock. We are on winter blend fuel and I have been doing morning remote starts, lots of stop and go traffic and all over town, so my calculations will be off from my normal routine.

Do they work well in wet/snowy conditions? YES... I can plow through puddles and slush with barely feeling it and no feedback from the steering wheel like you are hydroplaning like with the stock tires.

Are you leveled/lifted? NOPE... 100% stock suspension. 2012 F350 CCLB FX4 with plow package.

Does it rub? Yes, only on full lock turning left...

I only put about 1000 miles on them since I had them so I am sure that I will have more comments as time goes on. The guys at Ford said that the bigger tires are not helping my truck go straight with the roads being crowned not having any caster adjustment on the solid axle trucks.

Let me know what you think.

Here are a few more that I snapped while I was running into a clients shop. Will try to get a few more later.

My fuel mileage seems to be down about 1-2MPG but its hard to tell with all of the variables right now. I am going to pick up some Diesel Kleen next time I fill up. This time of year is always tough to get an accurate reading on mileage.

Surprisingly the ride is better. I have these aired at 65psi on all 4 corners. Don't take me the wrong way, it still rides like a truck but its a lot more tamed. I don't find myself bracing going over the bumps in the road. I am going to eventually swap the shocks out too down the road.

looks great! if they are 35" tall then that 1/2" taller than stock. Is that why they rub or is the rim really to narrow for the tires?

They rub because they are wider on stock rims. I would need to run wider wheels with a different offset and lift it for it not to rub with this setup. I was looking into the 295 option but the shops around here were more expensive on the 295s than the 35s.
