Which size Toyos

So I just got my first Ford ; a 2010 F-250 KR 4x4 and I am thinking about getting some Toyo MT tires. I have no interest in getting a lift or a leveling kit, and I don't want to be trimming or pulling back fenders either. I plan on using the stock 20" wheels as well. So should I go with the 275/65/20 (stock size), the 315/60/20, or the 35x12.5x20 ? I have seen pics of the 35s on stock 2010s but I haven't seen any of the other two sizes...

Stock tires on 20s are around 34.1" tall. With an unleveled truck I would go with Toyo 315/60/20s. These will be 34.8" tall and will fit better width-wise on your 20x8 wheels than the 35x12.50s would.

Should the 315/60/20s be cheaper than the 35s ?

I'm interested in the 315/60/20's toyo mt as well. I just have not seen anybody using them. They seem to be going with the 35x12.50.20's. I think they look too wide on the factory 20's. I am installing an icon leveling kit and would love too see some pics before I pull the trigger.

I'd look into the Nitto Trail Grappler in 295/65/20. It's 35.47" tall and E load rated at 4080 lbs. It will also fit the stock rim nicely. That'll be the next tire I run.

I have the 35x12.5x20's on the stock rims, and I love them.

Are you on stock suspension, or do you have a leveling kit?

MT's in general are louder, some are louder then others but they are all loud in general. All depends on what level of loudness you can handle.
